    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.

    PLEASE NOTE:

    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!

    Attend to precision. Mathematically proficient students try to communicate precisely to others. They try to use clear definitions in discussion with others and in their own reasoning. They state the meaning of the symbols they choose, including using the equal sign consistently and appropriately. They are careful about specifying units of measure, and labeling axes to clarify the correspondence with quantities in a problem. They calculate accurately and efficiently, express numerical answers with a degree of precision appropriate for the problem context. In the elementary grades, students give carefully formulated explanations to each other. By the time they reach high school they have learned to examine claims and make explicit use of definitions.
    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 word problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions referring to the same whole, including cases of unlike denominators, e.g., by using visual fraction models or equations to represent the problem. Use benchmark fractions and number sense of fractions to estimate mentally and assess the reasonableness of answers. For example, recognize an incorrect result 2/5 + 1/2 = 3/7, by observing that 3/7 < 1/2.
    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.
    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.
