Two Step Word Problems

Clip to ScrapBook #1

I am looking for a good teaching resource that has two step word problems. This might involve students working backwards, two steps, etc.

I find that I have not found books that involve higher level type of problems. I already have Daily Problem Solving, Problem Solver but I am looking for more two step type of problems. Does anyone have a resource they would suggest?

I feel I am having to make a lot of things on my own because I have been unable to find enough rigorous resources. Any help would be appreciated!

There are a fair amount of word problems here. I always write my own using my students' names and preferably their interests (or our read aloud, ect) but these have come in handy in an emergency or for me to use a template when writing my problems.

As you can see there are one and two step problems easily labeled for each skill.

Google it, I use their think tanks, they are task card activities. There are 200+ cards per box. My kids love them and they are great materials.

The Think Tanks look really good but they are so expensive! $100 a box. Thanks for the tip!

I'm all about free stuff, here's another site. I use Singapore math as one strategy kids can employ to solve problems. If you aren't familiar, then the models wont make sense maybe. But you could use the problems anyway.

Click addition and it's really addition and subtraction. You'll find multiple step problems there. Multiplication is actually multiplication and division and it includes multi step problems as well.
