Multiplication and Division Word Problems: 48 word problem maths task cards plus a PowerPoint and double-sided worksheet. ALL ANSWERS INCLUDED. The cards are designed to be self-checking. The PowerPoint features problems similar to some of those on the cards, while the worksheet features an additional 8 problems. Includes some UK money word problems. One of my most popular resources. DUE TO POPULAR DEMAND, DOLLAR VERSIONS ARE NOW INCLUDED. The files are PDF and PowerPoint within the Zip file.
Lots of contexts to practise skills. This problem-solving pack was originally designed for Key Stage 2 (KS2) - Year 5 / 6 (P6 / P7) but it would suit other groups and classes too. It works well as a regular early finisher activity or as part of your multiplying and dividing focus.
Multiplication and division by single digits and by multiples of 10 and 100
Includes some decimals
Many multi-step (2 and 3-step) problems
Some addition and subtraction is required too
The file containing the cards has the question sides on the odd numbered pages and the answer sides on the even numbered pages. If printing back to back you can print the odd numbered pages, then pop the card or paper back in the printer in the correct order and print the even numbered pages on the other side. You can laminate and have pupils work individually or in groups, checking the answer on the back once they’ve had a go. Alternatively, make it competitive and have individuals or pairs race to solve them, using a timer perhaps. A separate card featuring all answers is included in case you prefer not to print the answers on the back of the cards.
A PowerPoint features the problems from the first 8 cards for a whole class activity or to introduce or revise word problems. The answers (and suggested working out) flash up on clicking the mouse.
The worksheet could be used for jotter work or homework task.
