This PP is made for use in daily maths practice. It includes questions on each of the following topics:
Multiplication (Skip counting)
Money & Giving Change
Included with the PP are notes for each slide, or group of slides, which outline the mathematical thinking skills you should be looking for as your students complete these activities.
Some questions are extremely open, with almost unlimited answers, and others have a more limited set of possibilities. It is important that some time is spent initially demonstrating this process to students, especially if they are used to problems with only one correct answer!
To introduce these types of questions, you may initially like to work through the slides as a class before moving to individual work.
Having introduced them with my class, I use these activities as a warm up twice a week, related to whatever our topic of study is for that week. I also use these for pre-unit assessment, and then return to them at the end of the unit asking students to add any new learning they many have.
** The PP is editable to allow teachers to add additional slides or to change units of money or measurement to suit your country**
