Item description

Are you looking for a fun way to actively engage students in their own learning? This flexible set of math challenges is intended to get students thinking and problem solving; it can be used as morning work, homework, team work, or “I finished early” work. Remember, it is okay for students to struggle. We all struggle with life’s problems and therefore this is good preparation for real life! 


What is included in this packet?

This research-based activity is a gateway for students to use real world mathematical thinking and skills as they: investigate, organize thinking, report findings, and share what they have discovered. Included are:

  • Cover
  • Five multi-step word problems, each with a space for the student to show work and a space for the student to explain their thinking.
  • Answer key
  • Credits pages
