### Description

Number Tiles is a 23 page booklet containing 17 different hands-on, problem solving math activities for the primary grades that range from simple counting, to even and odd numbers, to greater than or less than to solving addition and subtraction problems. Critical thinking and mental math are incorporated into the various activities. In addition differentiation is simple since the activities do not have to be done in any specific order. Since the students do not write in the book, the pages can be copied and laminated so that they can be used from year to year.

These activities may be placed at a center for math practice. They are also a perfect resource for those students who finish an assignment early. Use these activities to reteach a concept to a small group as well as to introduce a new mathematical concept to the whole class.

Students solve the Number Tile Math Activities by arranging ten number tiles. The number tiles can be made from construction paper, cardboard, or square colored tiles that are purchased. (How to make the number tiles as well as storage ideas is included in the handout.) Each problem is given on a single page, and each activity varies in difficulty which is suitable for any diverse classroom. Since the students have the freedom to move the tiles around, they are more engaged and more willing to try multiple methods to find the solution. Some of the problems will have just one solution while others have several solutions. Download the preview page to see four sample activities.

These activities are very suitable for the visual and/or kinesthetic learner.

### Standards

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Represent addition and subtraction with objects, fingers, mental images, drawings, sounds (e.g., claps), acting out situations, verbal explanations, expressions, or equations.
Use addition and subtraction within 20 to solve word problems involving situations of adding to, taking from, putting together, taking apart, and comparing, with unknowns in all positions, e.g., by using objects, drawings, and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
Determine whether a group of objects (up to 20) has an odd or even number of members, e.g., by pairing objects or counting them by 2s; write an equation to express an even number as a sum of two equal addends.
Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. Mathematically proficient students start by explaining to themselves the meaning of a problem and looking for entry points to its solution. They analyze givens, constraints, relationships, and goals. They make conjectures about the form and meaning of the solution and plan a solution pathway rather than simply jumping into a solution attempt. They consider analogous problems, and try special cases and simpler forms of the original problem in order to gain insight into its solution. They monitor and evaluate their progress and change course if necessary. Older students might, depending on the context of the problem, transform algebraic expressions or change the viewing window on their graphing calculator to get the information they need. Mathematically proficient students can explain correspondences between equations, verbal descriptions, tables, and graphs or draw diagrams of important features and relationships, graph data, and search for regularity or trends. Younger students might rely on using concrete objects or pictures to help conceptualize and solve a problem. Mathematically proficient students check their answers to problems using a different method, and they continually ask themselves, "Does this make sense?" They can understand the approaches of others to solving complex problems and identify correspondences between different approaches.
