Each week spend 15 minutes increasing critical reading skills and problem solving strategies. When kids learn to read carefully, they can critically approach and solve multi-step problems!
I've used weekly challenge problems in my classroom for over 5 years and have seen a significant increase in my students' ability to think critically and problem solve. This third version has 10 multi-step problems that include a mixture of multiplication, division, multi-digit addition and subtraction, area and number patterns.
The problems are geared toward 3rd grade standards but can also be used in 2nd or 4th. Great for enrichment, test prep, assessment or weekly math challenges. Comes with suggested instructions for setting up a weekly routine.
