The 5th grade math problems on the sheets are longer math problems designed to encourage children to use a range of math skills to solve them.

The skills the problems will help to develop include:

At fifth grade, the problems are more advanced with children needing to become more systematic in their approach and experimenting using trial and improvement strategies.

Many of the problems have addition 'What if ...' questions with them to extend learning and get children looking for alternative solutions.

These sheets are great for extending learning for more able mathematicians, or using in a whole class problem solving lesson.

Bertie's Big Win is a problem involving both money and fractions which can be worked backwards. The aim of the problem is to work out how much money Bertie started with from the clue that are given.

Fox vs Rabbit is an activity involving mathematical modelling of a fox chasing a rabbit. The rabbit has a head-start, but the fox is faster. The aim is to find out when the fox will catch the rabbit, and whether or not the rabbit has time to reach his burrow.
