This blackline masters book follows on from the very popular ‘Timed Math Problems’ published by Ready-Ed Publications. It presents a range of problem solving techniques in a gradually more complex way as each section of the book is encountered. This enables problems to be grouped according to the time intended for an activity to be completed: 5 minutes, 10 minutes or 15 minutes. Naturally, these times are arbitrary and will range widely depending upon the abilities of the students, but the opportunity exists to extend students by presenting problems as a challenge to be completed within the specified time. The Teachers’ Notes section gives an outline of the various strategies that the students will use as they attempt the problems. Techniques include: Making a List Guess and Check Find a Pattern Solve an Easier Version Logical Reasoning Create a Diagram Working Backwards The problems in this book are ideally suited to a math learning center set up in the classroom. The problems can be copied, cut up, laminated and placed in boxes with students selecting a problem from the appropriate box, depending on how much time they have.
