I use real world scenarios to enforce the importance of learning and truly understanding math skills. Too often students say "Why do I need to know this?". This worksheet is about planning a birthday party for your classmates. Using the data in the world problem, students will collect, organize and analyze the information to solve the problem. This worksheets applies to these standards: CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.6.SP.A.1 CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.6.SP.A.2 CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.6.SP.A.3
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.6.SP.B.4 CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.6.SP.B.5. Even though it applies to 6th grade standards, I use these types of word problems for 4th grade and up.
