Math Language - Number Operators Language Matching GAME for 9-16 year olds
I believe difficulty interpreting and understanding Maths Language is one of the greatest inhibitors of students interest and enjoyment of Maths.
*This is a MATHS LANGUAGE GAME/ACTIVITY.
* I use it to very effectively engage students of all abilities in active learning of
Maths language, specifically words that can be associated with ADD, SUBTRACT, DIVIDE and MULTIPLY.
*This ACTIVITY includes 6 pages containing 60 WORDS and the 4 OPERATORS. which can be cut into individual pieces.
* The objective of the task is for the student (or group of students) to match the words with the operators.
* Adding a timer can add to the fun element of the game with students or groups competing against each other to see who gets the greatest number of words correct.
* Encourage students to explain why they matched words with operators in order to gauge levels of understanding and ability to articulate Maths language correctly
