Math Problem Solving Strategies

This is one in a series of resources to help you focus on specific problem solving strategies in the classroom.

Within this download, we are offering you a range of word problems for practice involving logical thinking.

Our Logical Thinking Problems

Each page provided contains a single problem solving word problem.

Below each story problem you will find a set of four steps for students to follow when finding the answer.

For this set, the fourth step is on the second page. We have worded the pages so you can easily choose to eliminate the back page. Students might show the answer to their problem instead of writing the answer in sentence format.

We have created five different logic problems with room for students to show their work and a place for students to write their answer in complete sentences.

Ideas for using these problems

Logical thinking problems can be a good opportunity to encourage group discussions.

Let students work with a partner or in small groups.

You might also encourage students to use manipulatives. For problems such as these the manipulatives might even be note cards with names that students move around as they solve the problem.

The five included problems will give your students multiple opportunities to work on logical thinking problems.
