Balance the equation! Choose ALL the answers that equal the value on the other side of the scale. Students will solve four equations per card and select the two or three correct answers on each card. Great for practicing basic facts and reinforcing the concept that the "answer" can come before the expression (e.g. 4 = 2 + 2).
For each of the 20 cards, students will have to solve ALL FOUR equations at the bottom so they can select ALL the answers that apply (that’s 80 equations in this deck!).
Boom Cards are self-checking and provide a high quality interactive learning activity.
