5th Grade Problem Solving and Mathematical Thinking Skills

The Problem Solving Think Tank helps teach 5th grade problem solving and mathematical thinking skills. It’s a great classroom teaching resource for core math programs.

Product Overview

The activity cards in this resource are written in English on one side and Spanish on the other. Students work in pairs or independently to complete each activity. The activity cards are separated into easy to understand categories that become progressively more rewarding as students move through the Think Tank.

This resource makes for an ideal “center” that allows for math practice throughout the school day. Each award winning Think Tank provides a student progress chart, answer keys, and identifies which activities are best suited to assess the performance of student understanding.

Educator Testimonial

“Think Tanks are an excellent resource to help me meet the needs of my heterogeneous classroom.  They are self-directed, easy for kids to monitor their own progress, and provocative of children’s curiosity.  They help with that, ‘I’m finished, what do I do now?’ time as well as make an excellent choice during “centers” time.”
