PBandMath - Common Core Aligned Word Problem Generator

The Common Core standards introduced greater complexity in math word problems than those taught in years past. Due to a lack of sample word problems to pull from, teachers are forced to spend the time creating their own bank of practice problems to use with their students. PBandMath provides an easy to use generator to create math word problems for classroom practice. Through our web app, teachers are able to generate hundreds of word problems aligned to the Common Cores. Teachers can build a bank of problems in minutes to create on the fly practice in the classroom, plan ahead by saving their bank, and printed their questions for small group or individual practice. Through our Projection Mode, teachers can display the word problems for whole class instruction.
