Use these flash cards to help 3rd and 4th graders understand algebra! The Common Core Math Standards require this kind of thinking in both grades: 3.OA.A.4, 3.OA.B.6, 3.OA.C.7, 3.OA.D.8, and 4.OA.A.3.
But the thinking required to meet these standards can be confusing and frustrating for many students.
This packet of materials will help you support algebraic thinking in your elementary classroom!
By teaching about inverse operations, which are operations that “undo” each other, students learn how to solve for variables in equations. This is done in a very clear, supportive way with the materials in this packet.
No more confusion, no more quizzical looks from students!
★ ★ ★ What You Get
★ ★ ★
When you purchase and download this product from Teaching Buddy, you receive:
*3 colorful posters* to help you teach about inverse operations. They will also be great references for students to use throughout the school year. Use them to help create a “Math Wall” in your classroom!
*10 worksheets with complete answer keys* that you can use to assess students’ understanding of inverse operations. There are 5 worksheets about addition/subtraction and 5 worksheets about multiplication/division.
*100 flash cards* that you can laminate and use as a whole class, in student pairs, or in math centers. The flash cards have an equation with a variable written on one side. On the other side is the solution equation (using the inverse operation with the variable isolated on one side of the equation), and the answer.
★ ★ ★ How It Works
★ ★ ★
This packet is organized by sections: posters, worksheets, and flash cards. There are directions and suggestions for use for everything included in the packet.
The materials will all work together to support your students’ algebraic thinking:
• Hang the posters up in your classroom when you teach your students about inverse operations, and leave them up throughout the year to reinforce as needed.
• Use the worksheets to initially help teach students about inverse operations, and later use them to assess their understanding.
• The flash cards are such versatile teaching aids! Use them in your lessons initially, and then add them to your math centers!
Since this kind of thinking is so important, return to the concept throughout the year using these simple materials!
I hope this packet supports your students’ algebraic thinking!
