Number and Operations
Teachers, are some of your students struggling to learn basic addition and subtraction facts?
These activities offer just what you need. We have 49 Number and Operations activities that provide high-quality mathematics content; in addition these activities help students learn how to compute numbers fluently. When students have a good understanding of basic facts, more difficult math problems become easier for them. A heavy emphasis is placed on vocabulary to help students intuitively identify the vocabulary associated with the various operations.
Included in this set of 49 activities are good ideas for teaching fractions. Fractions can be difficult for some students to understand. Therefore, it is necessary to introduce the concept using hands-on activities so as to capture students’ attention and build understanding. Fractions are modeled with circles, rectangles, and objects which help students learn the concept in a clear and easy way!
The 49 Number and Operations activities in this set help students—
?Separate a whole into two, three, or four equal parts and use
appropriate language to describe the parts such as three out of
four equal parts.
?Use appropriate languages to describe part of a set such as three
out of the eight crayons are red.
?Model and create addition and subtraction problem situations with
concrete objects and write corresponding number sentences.
?Use concrete and pictorial models to apply basic addition and
subtraction facts (up to 9 + 9 = 18 and 18 – 9 = 9).
The activities can be used to Assess concepts, Introduce concepts, Review concepts, and to help students Retain the concepts that have been taught. Our Math Activities can be used in a variety of ways to “AIRR” out your math curriculum.
Section One contains a numbered list of activities. Each activity is explained using a step-by-step process identifying the group size and materials needed to complete the task. Some of the activities have matching activity cards and practice sheets which are found in Section Two, Activity Sheets. The top right side of each set of activity cards, and practice sheet corresponds with the matching activity number. An answer key is conveniently provided in Section Three.
Our math activities are aligned to the following standards:
