Reviewer Comments:

This problem set includes a variety of questions written specifically for a given Common Core State Standard. The standard address by the problems is listed at the top of each page, and includes both the verbal description and the standard number. Many of the problems involve real-world situations. One problem set (Properties of Mental Math) has the incorrect link, so there is no problem for that standard. Overall, this is a quality set of problems that are specific to the CCSS that could easily be used in the classroom. This resource would be improved by the inclusion of answer keys.
