Product Description
For students to effectively progress from arithmetic to algebraic thinking, they must understand equivalence. Unfortunately, there are many students who do not understand the meaning of the equal sign and thereby experience problems interpreting, modifying, and answering equations, specifically those that incorporate multiple numerical terms.

Equivalence activities can also be used to develop student's relational thinking.

This product includes:
Students will use their problem-solving skills to answer equations involving addition, subtraction, and multiplication.
Students are asked to view each number sentence. The goal of the activity will be to write the correct missing number in each box to make both sides of the equation balanced.

Differentiated Learning Activities
Activities become progressively harder as students proceed through each level. Advanced students will move through to the level 3 activities. Those experiencing difficulties may remain on level 1 activities to practice the basic concepts involved with equivalent number sentences.

Level 1
Equivalent number sentences involving addition.
Level 2
Equivalent number sentences involving addition and subtraction.
Level 3
Equivalent number sentences involving addition, subtraction and multiplication.

Answer Keys
Answer keys for each level have been supplied and can be found directly after each activity sheet.
