In this activity students will understand the meaning of the equal sign, and determine if equations involving addition and subtraction are true or false. For example, which of the following equations are true and which are false?
6 = 6, 7 = 8 – 1, 5 + 2 = 2 + 5, 4 + 1 = 5 + 2.
Students will cut out and sort the equations on a T-Chart for True and False.
It can be used in a math center or as an individual activity.
