What do human calculators and memory champions have in common? Excellent mental imaging. They use pictures to help them do extraordinary tasks. Mental math capitalizes on mental imaging by teaching students to use these images to quickly solve or check math problems.
The 90+ mental math cards asks students to quickly develop mental images to manipulate numbers. The cards range from easy, in which students picture and tell how many toes are on a foot, to challenging in which students use mental images to quickly solve addition and subtraction problems from 0 to 100 while exposing students to language they will hear in word problems or while using real world math.
These cards have a variety of uses from teacher think alouds, showing students how to quickly and easily solve problems, to mental math warm ups, circle time games or even independent practice. They can be initially used with a journal to encourage imaging or used strictly for mental math exercises. The cards touch on skills covered in kindergarten, first and second grade.
