These math icebreakers are a great first day of school or beginning of the year activity to get your students thinking about math while they get to know each other! Each student gets a card that contains a problem and a question. Students must find the other person whose problem has the same answer, the partners ask each other the questions on the cards.
Around the room are posted 5 categories (such as multiples of 10, prime numbers, factors of 24, etc…). The pairs of students must find the category to which their cards belong. Again, students can take a moment to get to know each other by answering the questions of the cards.
Finally, there is a short task for each category group to complete.
