This product is a bundle of 4 individual products in my store!!
Each individual word problem set retails for $1.00, so you save by purchasing all 4 at once.
This product features 4 sets of 12 word problems on a 2x3 grid. There is a set for each operation- addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Each set comes with a recording sheet where students can solve the problems and record their answers.
In my own classroom, I have printed 2 copies of each set out, and numbered them 1-12 on the back. In class, pass out the cards to students. They walk around and find the other student who has the same card number as them. The pair sits down together and solves the problem on the recording sheet. Repeat and share when finished.
I have found that it turns somewhat monotonous word problem practice into an engaging, fun activity. These have also been used as homework, morning work, or center activities.
These word problems were designed for use in a 3rd grade classroom but could be used as a review in 4th grade as well.
This activity is aligned with the 3rd Grade CC Objectives:
CCSS.Math.Content.3.OA.A.3 Use multiplication and division within 100 to solve word problems in situations involving equal groups, arrays, and measurement quantities, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
CCSS.Math.Content.3.NBT.A.2 Fluently add and subtract within 1000 using strategies and algorithms based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction.
and the 4th Grade CC Objectives:
CCSS.Math.Content.4.OA.A.2 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.
CCSS.Math.Content.4.NBT.B.4 Fluently add and subtract multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm.
