Students will be exposed to several question types (Ex. Multiple Choice, True or False, Multiple Response, Fill in the Blank, etc). The questions have short answer responses, but they require critical thinking and math reasoning skills. Flip and Go Math Cards are a fun alternative for students to practice math standards and strengthen mathematical concepts. Most importantly they can be easily integrated into your daily routine.


When Can I Use Flip and Go Math Cards?

They can be used to reinforce math skills:

β€’ during small group time or math centers

β€’ during whole group lessons as a warm up or closure

β€’ for morning work with students that need practice with a specific math skill

β€’ for early finishers that need extra practice with a specific math skill

β€’ on the school bus during field trips

β€’ in the hallways during restroom breaks

β€’ during recess for students that need extra practice

Measure areas by counting unit squares (square cm, square m, square in, square ft, and improvised units).
Find the area of a rectangle with whole-number side lengths by tiling it, and show that the area is the same as would be found by multiplying the side lengths.
Multiply side lengths to find areas of rectangles with whole-number side lengths in the context of solving real world and mathematical problems, and represent whole-number products as rectangular areas in mathematical reasoning.
Solve real world and mathematical problems involving perimeters of polygons, including finding the perimeter given the side lengths, finding an unknown side length, and exhibiting rectangles with the same perimeter and different areas or with the same area and different perimeters.
Use tiling to show in a concrete case that the area of a rectangle with whole-number side lengths 𝘒 and 𝘣 + 𝘀 is the sum of 𝘒 Γ— 𝘣 and 𝘒 Γ— 𝘀. Use area models to represent the distributive property in mathematical reasoning.
