This is a 24 interactive task card activity using strip diagrams with addition and subtraction problems. Problem solving is an integral part of a well thought out lesson. Use as an evaluation, an informal assessment or a way to get your students talking and exploring newly learned material, the focus should be to read, comprehend and analyze the problem at hand.
In this activity, students will read a word problem (addition or subtraction), decide on the appropriate operation to use, show their work and provide a pictorial representation in the form of a strip diagram.
Whether used as an individual activity, a morning math warm up or an evaluation, this will provide your students with a concrete understanding of each problem.
