This task is a set of addition and subtraction word problems with three follow up questions created for third graders. Double-digits are used in the word problems and students must decide for themselves when to use addition or subtraction through the construction of the responses. The follow up questions contain argumentative language and ask students to describe how they solved the problem, the warrants behind it, and a claim and evidence pertaining to a partner’s strategy.
