Much has been said about using mindful manipulations in math. There is great value in being able to see the structure of a mathematical expression or equation and utilizing that structure to solve or evaluate a more complex math statement.
This set of task cards provides practice using mindful math to evaluate expressions. Use them to develop fluency in basic operations. Students will be able to see the connections between expressions and to use the connections to evaluate more efficiently. After all ,that is how we “do math” in the real world!
Included are 20 problems to print and cut apart to make individual cards. A recording sheet is included for students to use. AN answer key is also included.
Please leave feedback to let me know how you utilize this set of task cards.
