Small group problem solving with multi-step problems and all operations with whole numbers and fractions.
This activity helps students answer two common questions when solving word problems – What operation do I use? How many steps do I do to solve the problems?
8 problems along with a recording sheet.
Use in small groups, during guided math, during tutoring or intervention, and in centers.
This activity includes clear and concise teacher directions, a recording sheet including problems, and conversation starters that give students what they need to have meaningful academic discussions.

Add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators (including mixed numbers) by replacing given fractions with equivalent fractions in such a way as to produce an equivalent sum or difference of fractions with like denominators. For example, 2/3 + 5...
Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions referring to the same whole, including cases of unlike denominators, e.g., by using visual fraction models or equations to represent the problem. Use benchmark fractions and number s...
Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication to multiply a fraction or whole number by a fraction.
Solve real world problems involving multiplication of fractions and mixed numbers, e.g., by using visual fraction models or equations to represent the problem.
Apply and extend previous understandings of division to divide unit fractions by whole numbers and whole numbers by unit fractions.
