✏️ “At first my students were a little confused, so we did the first one together. After that, they kind of just took off. They enjoyed the challenge that this product brought, and I enjoyed that they couldn’t just guess and operation and then computate. They have to actually read through the problem and think about what information is relevant for each question.” -Think Outside the Bell
✏️ “Thank you for a great resource. I love, love, love these problems! I love that the information is presented as a long passage – this is great for reading and reading comprehension practice. Having four problems to solve requires rereading and inferencing, as well solving the actual mathematical problem.” -Perrine G.
✏️ “My students absolutely love doing these! They beg me for more. I love that they are challenging and require students to re-read.” -PJ I.
