This bundle includes both Math Matches and Math Matches - Order of Operations.
Math Matches is a simple but effective activity is designed to improve mental math, critical thinking skills and fact fluency with all operations. It includes 148 expressions with answers from 0 to 12.
Each expression was chosen to reinforce foundational concepts such as doubling and halving, ten more and ten less, and powers of ten. Equal signs are also included. Expressions are organized in numerical order, and the original can be used as an answer key. Students find the expressions equaling the same amount, link with equal signs, or group them together.
Differentiate as needed with your students. Work with specific operations for remediation and targeted instruction or include all four operations for a greater challenge.
Math Matches - Order of Operations is designed to provide practice and review with two and three-step order of operations expressions.
It includes a hundred expressions, organized by answers (0-12). Twenty-five expressions have exponents. The expressions with exponents can be used in conjunction with the other 75, removed, or used separately as needed for differentiation. Also included are expression template for creating additional expressions, an order of operations b/w visual for student interactive notebooks, and an order of operations color visual for classroom display.
Copy on card stock and cut apart. For more durability and ease of use, laminate, mount on foam sheets, and/or add magnetic backing.
I have had success using this in small groups of 2 to 4 students of various ability levels. I'd love to hear how you use it in your classroom. Be sure to provide feedback and earn credits toward your next TPT purchase. Thank you for choosing Small Group Specialties!
