**What is a 3-Act Maths Task?**

A 3-Act Maths Task is a way of teaching maths by telling a story or presenting a problem in three parts. First, students are hooked with an easy-to-solve problem. Next, they are presented with an additional problem requiring the previous answer. Finally, they are given a third problem using the previous answers and a new operation or task to complete using the information they’ve discovered during the last two acts.

**Rigorous 3-Act Maths Word Problems for Measuring Length**

With those high-stakes assessments looming, our job is to prepare our students for what they might encounter. Rigorous maths standards require students to apply their skills across multiple situations and be able to show their thinking and explain the mathematical reasoning behind their answers.

This collection of Three-Act Maths Tasks is designed to do just that. Modelled after multi-part questions commonly found on standardised tests, these tasks guide the student through three questions that require them to use information acquired in previous steps and apply that information to new scenarios. Each task consists of two purely mathematical questions and a third question that requires critical thinking and an explanation of answers.

This printable set of three-act maths tasks requires students to use their knowledge of length conversions and solving word problems with multiple operations.
