This is a practice / quiz / homework that can be used to assess students' ability to make sense of and solve one step, multiplication and division word problems. Each problem has an extension part that will help them get in the habit of using the information in the previous problem to work toward mastering 2 step word problems. This scaffold can be used to work toward 2 step problems, or it can simply be extra practice as if they are one step problems, too!
The problems are mixed multiplication and division where students must identify and decide which operation will successfully solve the problem.
When my students work, I require them to show a diagram, an equation, and give a stated answer that actually answers the question being asked to put the answer in the context of the problem.
