Included are 2 free critical thinking math problems that encourage students to read carefully and approach and solve multi-step problems.
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.
This once a week routine increases critical reading skills and problem solving strategies. 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 is a sample of the word problems included in my Weekly Challenge Problems 1-4. Comes with suggested instructions for setting up a weekly routine.
