Monday Math Freebie

I am hooking up with Classroom Freebies for Manic Monday.

Classroom Freebies Manic Monday

I am sharing this little selection of math problem solving pages. There are two types of problems that no matter how many times we try them a couple of kiddos still  need practice. Click here for a copy.

There are 4 problems - 2 to practice each of the two strategies.

One set involves using multiples to find the answer.
Example: There are close to 40 cookies. If put in groups of 4 there are 2 extra if put in groups of 8 there are 6 extra. How many cookies are there?
I have my kids write out the multiples of 4 in one row and then the multiples of 8 in another row. Then look for numbers that are close to 40 that when you add the extras you get the same amount.
4 8 12 16 20 24 28 32 36 40
8 16 24 32 40
36 + 2 = 38
32 + 6 =  38

The other set uses subtraction, division and addition.
Example:  There are 45 shapes. There are 7 more squares than circles. How many squares and how many circles.
45-7 = 38
38 divided by 2 = 19
One group has 19, the other has 19 + 7 = 26
Check 26 + 19 = 45
