One big challenge students often have with math story problems is that they do not read the problem carefully enough. These longer story problems were designed to help students learn to read carefully and pick out the relevant details.
Each of these 18 half-page cards features a story with a lot of information and numbers. There are also four problems for each story. Students must read carefully to successfully select the information they need to solve each problem. All of these problems require more than one step to solve and most require several steps. In addition to basic operations, money, elapsed time, fractions, and finding averages are also included.
