Last fall I posted a product in my TPT store of math missions for 4th graders. It quickly became one of my best sellers! This year I'm posting the 5th grade version of the same thing.
What is it?
It's a problem of the week for 34 weeks of the school year. Each problem requires thought, student explanation and usually multiple steps as well.
Math Missions (AKA – Problem of the Week) help you support your
students’ understanding and application of the Mathematical Practices on
a consistent basis. This is a comprehensive packet that covers all
domains and almost every standard!
Each little booklet walks yours students through the processes of
evaluating the problem, deciding on an approach and order of approach
steps, working through the math, and explaining their reasoning.
These are ready to print, copy, and use!
The Math Missions pack includes 34 problems (that’s enough for the entire school
year!) , centered around 5th grade standards. They cover all domains
(Numbers and Base Ten, Geometry, etc…). They can be used for
remediation in 6th and 7th grades or advanced practice for 4th graders as well.
These are all aligned with common core standards and are consistent with the Smarter Balanced Assessment style.
I've included a rubric and methodology for getting started with these,
helping you and your kiddos get the most out of the process.
Head on over to my shop where you can get these today! Have them ready for your entire school year!
