Problem Solving Task- The Brownie Problem (Fractions-Multiplication/Division/Comparing)Quick View

Problem Solving Task- The Brownie Problem (Fractions-Multiplication/Division/Comparing)

As students engage in authentic problem solving, they learn how to apply the mathematics they learn in the classroom to the world beyond! Students must determine who received a greater portion of a tray of brownies in task. -This task encourages students to apply their fraction sense to determine when and how to appropriately multiply and divide whole numbers and fractions. -Additionally, students will compare two unit fractions to determine which is greater. This PowerPoint includes teacher facilitation questions, a guide to understanding the mathematics in the problem, a scaffolded approach to problem solving, and possible solutions. This is the method I use to help my students engage deeply in problem solving and stretch themselves beyond "number plugging" as many students do when they solve a "word problem". I have included a powerpoint version as well as a printable .pdf to fit the needs of your classroom.

Number Sense: Problem-Solving and Vocabulary Connections

The problems presented in the worksheets are similar to those on the third grade STAAR math test, making this packet ideal for math centers, seat work, early finishers, and older students who need extra review over the basics. It is so important for math students to have a sense of what a reasonable answer is and how to connect the words in a math problem to the process needed to find a solution to the problem. This packet, originally designed for middle school students new to the US and the English language, guides students through everyday vocabulary terms that can give hints about the arithmetic operations needed to solve problems. Different ways of finding a solution are also presented, including using number lines and drawing models. The packet includes: MORE or LESS Activity Sheet: This page helps students develop number sense by thinking about how the expected solution compares to the original amount. MORE or LESS Problem-Solving Activities: These five pages use the problems on the activity sheet to explore problem-solving strategies, vocabulary connections. Graphic Organizer: Students can keep track of their vocabulary connections on the organizer. Operation Sets (14 pages, total): Each of the four basic operations is explored in these sets of worksheets. The first sheet in the set guides students step by step through solving a problem, while subsequent sheets gradually hand over more and more responsibility to the student. The final sheet in each set requires the student to work independently. Answer Sheets: Answer sheets have been included for all activities.

Area of Circles Solve & Draw Activity

Solve and Draw no-prep printables for are an easy, no-prep way to make math practice more engaging. This resource may be used as a fun quiz or review, for center or station activities, for fast finishers, as homework, or as a sub day activity. How Solve & Draw Activities Work Students solve the area and circumference problems and add to the drawing based on their answers. (In full version - sample includes area only) Two versions of each page (excluding the challenge page) are included. One has answers with Pi, the other has answers that require calculating with Pi. The drawings and prompts are identical – to tell the difference you will need to look at the answer choices or at the top left circle of the border. Level 1 pages have a black circle in the top left of the border. An optional challenge page is included that can be copied on the back of the worksheet or given to fast finishers– this gives students an extension opportunity by asking them to create a new problem using a circle with new dimensions. They get to create their own drawing prompts and can then add those to their drawings. You may also have them share these challenge problems with the rest of class, which provides additional practice for everyone.
