Product Description
Increasing rigor is not the same as making things harder. Rigor should be the buzz word we use in conjunction with thinking deeper, communicating more effectively and raising expectations.

I have personally applied this flip chart with 4th and 5th grade students (alongside a hand drawn reference poster with the same terminology and equation examples). As a fourth grade teacher this ActivInspire flip chart is one approach to expecting more from strong mathematicians as well as a way to inform all students about how equations are meant to be articulated for other mathematicians to check. As a fifth grade teacher I would use this flip chart as a way to indicate expectations for all equation writing.

I am a big proponent for "Release of Responsibility", which is how this flip chart is designed. Although not address in this flip char, Order of Operations may play a role in this lesson.

Please redesign for yourself.
