What's This Book About Anyway?

I've been teaching for over a decade, mostly in fourth grade. During that time, I've made up over 500 word problems to use in my class.

The formatting required for this upload doesn't permit graphs or charts, so I had to leave those out, but here are 444 problems I've used with 4th and 5th graders. The problems cover a range of difficulty, and I've included suggestions for ways to simplify or complicate the problems.
