Magic Number 48 is a mathematics activity which practices all four of the operation i.e. Addition, subtraction, multiplication, division as well as order of calculations.
Children need to use only the five given numbers to reach 48. All the numbers need to be used, in any order. They need to add, subtract, multiply or divide in order to reach 48. Brackets may also be used to assist in making the calculations.
This set includes 60 task cards to be used in a mathematics center as well as a work booklet. This work booklet contains the same problems but in a booklet form. You can then choose which method would suit your situation better. The booklet has space for calculations to be made. The two components can even be used together.
I have also included a memorandum showing one method of working out each cards. Encourage your children to find their own method as there are other ways to work each one out.
