Challenging Mathematics Problems for Fifth & Sixth Graders.
A collection of word problems for fifth and sixth grade students are presented. The problems, which are divided into four sections and which get progressively more difficult in each section, include: (1) 38 problems on ratio and proportion; (2) 40 multistep problems (problems which require more than one calculation); (3) 40 problems on geometry and measurement; and (4) 40 "trial and arrow" problems (problems in which a reasonable guess is made and the results of that guess point out the correct answer or a more reasonable guess). Answers are provided immediately following each section. An introduction for the teacher suggests ways in which the problems could be presented. Five copies of a five-item, 15-minute problem-solving test for use in a local competition are provided along with an answer key and form for recording students' results. This document is part of a collection of materials from the Iowa Area Education Agency 7 Teacher Center project. (DC)
