### Description

Over the years I have noticed that students tend to look for routine in math class. If it’s a division unit, they will divide any two numbers they find! If it’s a subtraction unit, they try to regroup everything!

For that reason, I try hard to sprinkle in a variety of problems all year that require students to think and apply what they have learned—perhaps draw a picture or make a table to help . . . but, most importantly, to THINK about math. I hope you find these useful!

You can use this to teach a mini unit on problem solving or simply use them throughout the year to improve math thinking! The problems are written in such a way that fourth graders should be able to access them—perhaps (if needed) with the support of pictures, manipulatives, or teamwork. 5th graders should be able to handle them independently. They are great problems for students to work on persevering, for deciding which operation to use, and for sharing different solution strategies.

This bundle of four sets of 20 problem solving task cards are perfect to use as whole class warm ups, small group instruction, math stations or centers, or even as intervention groups. Although designed to be used with fourth and fifth graders, these cards would also be perfect to use with older students needing additional review with multi-step problem solving. The 80 problems included require students to use different operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) as well as fractions, measurement, and more to solve a variety of real world problems. Many problems have two parts—great for differentiation! Students can tackle the first part of the problem--and can try the second part if they have time!

Answers are included as are three rubrics to use to help in scoring the Standards for Mathematical Practice! Cards are included in both color and low-ink, black and white versions for ultimate flexibility. There are blank recording sheets that can be used for students to track their work, or they can simply do their work in a notebook. Watch for many other sets available on a variety of topics and at many grade levels. If you wish to see each set individually, check the links below to see exactly what you get.

This set of task cards is a version of THIS RESOURCE for people who prefer the problems in task card format. If you already own this resource, please know that the problems are the SAME but in a new format! If you prefer having the problems in three different formats, check the link above to see if that resource better suits your needs!

### Standards

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Use the four operations to solve word problems involving distances, intervals of time, liquid volumes, masses of objects, and money, including problems involving simple fractions or decimals, and problems that require expressing measurements given in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit. Represent measurement quantities using diagrams such as number line diagrams that feature a measurement scale.
Fluently add and subtract multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm.
Find whole-number quotients and remainders with up to four-digit dividends and one-digit divisors, using strategies based on place value, the properties of operations, and/or the relationship between multiplication and division. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.
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.
Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions referring to the same whole and having like denominators, e.g., by using visual fraction models and equations to represent the problem.
