This packet contains 25 performance tasks focusing on decomposing numbers, addition, and subtraction. You provide the manipulatives (linking cubes, counters, tiles, etc.) and allow your students to solve the problem. They should then record their findings in the large workspace provided.
A check-off is provided to help your students to remember to use pictures, numbers, and words (words can be written or an oral explanation) to represent their thinking.
These problems are meant to challenge your students! Regular exposure to problems such as these will greatly enhance their ability to think about numbers flexibly.
