This set of 20 Valentine's Day multiplication word problems is perfect for warm ups, whole class practice, math centers, and more! Pages can be printed, cut into quadrants, and laminated to use as task cards (color version) or can be copied on black and white and cut apart to use in math journals. Now comes with full digital slide access as well!

There are 20 different word problems included using 1x2, 1x3, 1x4 and 2x2 digit multiplication problems. 8 of the problems offer a second "challenge" level as well for differentiation.

These sheets can either be reproduced to use as worksheets, problems can be cut apart to use in math journals, or the cards can be copied and used as task cards. Student work recording sheets are included--including the space to try writing two of their own problems!

The Common Core clearly states that students at this age should be able to solve multiplication problems in a variety of contexts. These problems are geared toward fourth graders (perfect CCSS alignment) but can be used to challenge third graders or review with 5th graders.

Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. Mathematically proficient students start by explaining to themselves the meaning of a problem and looking for entry points to its solution. They analyze givens, constraints, relationships, and goals. They make conjectures about the form and meaning of the solution and plan a solution pathway rather than simply jumping into a solution attempt. They consider analogous problems, and try special cases and simpler forms of the original problem in order to gain insight into its solution. They monitor and evaluate their progress and change course if necessary. Older students might, depending on the context of the problem, transform algebraic expressions or change the viewing window on their graphing calculator to get the information they need. Mathematically proficient students can explain correspondences between equations, verbal descriptions, tables, and graphs or draw diagrams of important features and relationships, graph data, and search for regularity or trends. Younger students might rely on using concrete objects or pictures to help conceptualize and solve a problem. Mathematically proficient students check their answers to problems using a different method, and they continually ask themselves, "Does this make sense?" They can understand the approaches of others to solving complex problems and identify correspondences between different approaches.
Solve multistep word problems posed with whole numbers and having whole-number answers using the four operations, including problems in which remainders must be interpreted. Represent these problems using equations with a letter standing for the unknown quantity. Assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies including rounding.
Multiply or divide to solve word problems involving multiplicative comparison, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem, distinguishing multiplicative comparison from additive comparison.
Multiply a whole number of up to four digits by a one-digit whole number, and multiply two two-digit numbers, using strategies based on place value and the properties of operations. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.
