Sometimes you just need a quick refresher, not a huge project, to give the students.
That’s where Flash Math comes in. It’s a short document with a clear introduction reminding students how to do a very specific skill, easy problems and slightly challenging problems to loosen up the rusty skills.
This packet contains directions on how to form basic fractions, then adding and subtracting fractions. There are a handful of easy question, a scattering of challenge questions. And, there is an answer key included in the back.
The most exciting part? We took the concepts and elevated them to a fun level with cute, nearly edible graphics. Warning: Might cause sugar cravings and excited learners.
You can use these as either a primer for a topic, a refresher after a long break, or even as quick reviews before tests. We even use them as extra credit assignments at the end of the week that serves to refresh and a small challenge when a timer is ticking away in the background.
