Product Description
Are you looking for higher level math problem solving activities to use with your students? Do you want flexibility—a math resource that can be used with small enrichment groups or can be tiered so you can use it with your entire class…but at different levels? Do you want your students problem solving, thinking creatively, writing and talking about math, and working collaboratively? Do you want them working on math in “real world” contexts?

This may be just what you are looking for!

For years, I have wished and hoped for a resource that would provide my students with high quality, open ended tasks to allow them to apply what they learn to real world situations. Guess what? They are hard to find! So I thought and I thought…and finally the idea for a flexible, high level series of problems came to me. They can be used whole class…with enrichment groups…for fast finishers…or even in different ways with different students. This version is PERFECT for any time of year and with any group of students because it is all about planning a wonderful night of movies, fun, and sleepovers! There are lots of factors to consider--this is not a fill-in-the-blank resource!

Each "Thinker Task" resource is based on a different real world theme--like planning the timing of a holiday feast, spending a day at an amusement park, or planning a party--and students need to use the "Math by the Numbers" posters (available in full color to laminate for centers and in black and white for easy copying) to work on a multiple step, open ended project. The activity is tiered so that the same activity is available at different levels. Not only that, but you get additional math practice sheets (also tiered), suggestions for math discussions, extension activities, and more!

I don't think you will be disappointed--and more products in the series are on their way! This version focuses on addition and subtraction of money, elapsed time, basic multiplication, and multi-step problem solving. It is ideal for grades 3 - 5 and could be used in other grade levels at your discretion. I hope you enjoy it--and the flexibility it offers you.
