Product Description

The idea of math dates is to use the date as a math enrichment activity. Some days the date might just be there for students to observe and mentally note that the expression is equal to the numbers in the date (even great in a non-math class!). Other days you might call attention to the expression and ask students to show you their solution (yes, the answer should be the date for that day, but I like to see how students work out the answer, depending on how complex the expression is.)

Using dates as mathematical expressions is a great way to expose students to new math rules (like cubing or cube roots or exponent rules, etc) or review rules (or facts) that students have learned (like squaring or order of operations!).

In this resource, you’ll find:

1) A list of the dates for April 2019 (including weekends - you can always put one of the weekend dates on the board during the week, and see if your students notice that you made a “mistake.”)

2) A list of dates for April, without the year, to use in future years.

3) A 2019 calendar for students to record the date’s expression and their work for reaching a solution. The calendar also includes the direction for students to create their own expressions.

4) An April calendar with no dates, to be used after 2019.

5) A Cross Number puzzle that includes about half of the dates for April 2019. This can be used for early finishers, a challenge day, or a sub day, any time during the year.

6) A Find a Number puzzle using the other half of the dates for April 2019. This one will take students longer to complete than the Cross Number puzzle.

7) A Find a Number puzzle using dates of April events in history, to be used any year.
