This Choosing the Operation Sorting Game
will help build literacy in your math class and give your students practice at deciding between addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division without having to actually solve the problems. The game is fully interactive and digital and is designed to be used in Google Drive.
This interactive math game includes 20 rounds
where students drag and drop whole number word problems into boxes based on their operation. For the first ten rounds, students choose between two commonly mixed up operations such as Addition vs. Subtraction, Addition vs. Multiplication, or Multiplication vs. Division. In the last ten rounds, students choose between all four basic operations. 20 rounds with 4 word problems per round is 80 TOTAL CHANCES TO PRACTICE!
"My students know how to multiply and how to divide with fluency, they just don't know WHEN
to use each operation! They are excellent at solving word problems when we are working on one specific operation but when all operations are mixed together, it's a disaster!
This game is designed for computers, chrome books, or iPads!
This product also includes detailed teacher directions for downloading the game, sharing it with your students, and successfully implementing it in your classroom. An answer key is included in digital form and also as a PDF if you'd rather print the answer key and pass it out to students as they finish.

I hear from teachers all the time: "I love your number sorts, but who has time to cut out thousands of tiny slips of paper?! Plus keeping track of it all from year-to-year is a nightmare!"
