“They just add all the numbers! It doesn’t matter what the problem says.”
-said Every Teacher. Ever.
These cards were designed to SUPPORT a great Numberless Word Problem lesson where students are challenged (okay, forced) to consider the context BEFORE just adding or multiplying the numbers! Figuring out when to multiply or divide fractions is VERY SOPHISTICATED! It helps tremendously to continuously phrase X as "groups of" and division as "how many of these in one of those"
1 teaching template (full size numberless problem)
24 numberless problems to sort (Green border)
5 sorting headers
24 cards framed out with blanks for students to use their own values. (pink border)
Answer keys to the sort AND visual answer keys for SELF CHECKING EASE!
A fabulous way to develop THINKING and REASONING skills needed for problem solving, on the PARCC and other tests.... and in life!
*I would prefer not to put blanks where the numbers go... but with fraction numbers I felt it was just too much to wrap your head around, so I added the inconspicuous blanks.
