Timed Math Problems

Interesting word and number problems for 6-8 year old students

by Danny McCormick, Melinda Parker

This blackline master activity book 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 opportunities exist 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. The problems in this book are ideally suited to a math learning centre set up in the class room. The problems can be copied, cut up, and placed in boxes with students selecting a problem from the appropriate box, depending on how much time they have.
