These word problems are written about information provided in tables and within the problems themselves. There are problems involving calculating scores, number of hits as fractions, cost of tickets and food, attendance, etc. There is one section of problems involving perimeter and area at Kauffman Stadium and A T & T Park.
Problems use all four whole number operations. Some problems involve writing equivalent fractions and simplifying. The position of the unknowns vary according to how the problems are stated. Most of the problems are 2- or multi-step with a combination of operations.
There are 26 problems in all with several sub-problems. Space is provided to write all equations and do calculations.
These perimeter problems are also available in a collection of area and perimeter problems for Grades 3-5 which I have posted separately. If you want area/perimeter work specifically, and need some work for older students, you might want to look at that.
