Use these activity mats in a station or as a part of RTI to give students the opportunity to explore and build strip diagrams using cuisenaire rods.
You will need a set of cuisenaire rods.
Included are 4 different mats/ each mat has 4 problems to build
Independent Practice Key
TEKS Supported by this activity include;
4.5(A) represent multi-step problems involving the four operations with whole numbers using strip diagrams and equations with letter standing for the unknown quantity
4.4(D) use strategies and algorithms, including the standard algorithm, to multiply up to a four-digit number by a one-digit number and to multiply a two-digit number by a two-digit number. Strategies may include mental math, partial products, and the commutative, associative, and distributive properties
