Is math review something your 4th and 5th grade students always seem to need? These Math Calendar Dates, or dates as mathematical expressions, are a great way to add some daily math review to any class!
The basic idea of Daily Math Date Warm-ups is to use the date to consistently review and reinforce math concepts, and possibly use as extensions or enrichment. Each part of the date is written as an expression.
- For example, January 1, 2023, could be: 5^2 ÷ 25/7 + 2 ÷ 9/16 + 7.
Using the calendar math dates:
- Some days the date might just be there on the board for students to observe and mentally note that the expression is equal to the numbers in the date (this is even great in a non-math class!).
- Other days you might use the date as a warm-up and ask students to show you their solutions.
- This is a great way to address equivalent expressions and MANY other concepts as a type of spiral review throughout the entire year!
These Daily Math Calendar Dates for 4th - 5th Grades:
- Use basic facts/operations
- Have expressions with multiplying and adding, so students will need to remember, or learn, to follow the order of operations
- Include several phrases with exponents
- Include square roots
- Include decimal and fraction problems
This full-year bundle of Daily Math Date Warm-Ups includes:
1) 12 months of math dates lists
- Includes weekends (you can always put one of the weekend dates on the board during the week and see if your students notice that you made a “mistake.”
2) 12 blank calendars (one for each month)
- Students can record the date’s expression and their work for reaching a solution.
- Calendars also include the direction for students to create their own expressions. (I found that some students really like this challenge – students asked me if they could create their own, so now they have a place to keep track of them!)
3) 12 Match and Color pages (one for each month)
- These include about half of the dates for the month (they’re the same expressions as those in the monthly list.)
- These are great for fast finishers, a challenge day, or a sub day
4) 12 months of calendar cards
- Cards for the month and day can be posted on the whiteboard
- Or, post just the day cards on your calendar
Using dates as mathematical expressions is a great way to expose students to new math concepts (like order of operations, exponents, different notations) or review/reinforce skills or math facts that students have already learned.
