Students use addition, subtraction, and multiplication to balance and compare expressions using greater than, less than, and equal signs. Great for movement as an interactive game of SCOOT to get students up and moving.

Students will practice adding, subtracting, and multiplying to compare numbers using these 24 task cards. They'll use the > (greater than), < (less than), or = (equal) signs to show the comparison.

You receive 2 sets of task cards - colored and black and white. The colored cards and the black and white cards contain the same expressions (although the pictures may be slightly different).

Use the black and white for exit tickets or to add to interactive student notebooks.

Please note that 2 sets of task cards are included, BUT they have the SAME expressions. The only real difference is color versus black and white (even though the pictures are somewhat different.)

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Interpret a multiplication equation as a comparison, e.g., interpret 35 = 5 × 7 as a statement that 35 is 5 times as many as 7 and 7 times as many as 5. Represent verbal statements of multiplicative comparisons as multiplication equations.
Fluently multiply and divide within 100, using strategies such as the relationship between multiplication and division (e.g., knowing that 8 × 5 = 40, one knows 40 ÷ 5 = 8) or properties of operations. By the end of Grade 3, know from memory all products of two one-digit numbers.
Read and write multi-digit whole numbers using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form. Compare two multi-digit numbers based on meanings of the digits in each place, using >, =, and < symbols to record the results of comparisons.
Fluently add and subtract within 1000 using strategies and algorithms based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction.
