Word Problems with a Purpose: 10 Place Value Worksheets Featuring 10 Non-Profit Organizations Working to Meet the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals

Word Problems with a Purpose features ten math worksheets that address the Common Core Math Standards and focus on the topic of place value. The word problems our students solve during math time often relate to such items as cookies and pizza slices. As teachers, we can make better use of this valuable educational “real estate” by having these problems serve as a platform that introduces children to the wonderful work that many non-profit organizations are doing to address the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s). Incorporating these goals into our instructional practice helps children gain awareness of important events happening around the world, supports the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) standards regarding global collaboration, increases the relevance of classroom learning, and encourages students to find ways to make a difference in their communities and beyond.

Each sheet introduces a new non-profit organization, includes its mission and website, and contains problems that help children learn more about the vital work of these groups. The worksheets pertain to essential place value concepts, such as comparing, ordering, rounding, estimation, addition, and subtraction. The problems are appropriate for children in grades 3-5.

This resource:

  • Can be used for either classwork or homework
  • Contains an answer key
  • Comes with an additional copy of each worksheet with blanks instead of numbers so that you can plug in any values you wish. That way, if you would like to increase or decrease the difficulty level of these problems for some or all of your students, you can choose other numbers that are more appropriate.
  • Describes options for further differentiation that support a CGI approach to math instruction
  • Includes suggestions for classroom implementation and parent communication
