Your students will flex their mental math muscles with these eight operation challenge activities (add/subtract/multiply/divide are all included)! Students will rearrange/cut/paste operations (positive whole numbers only) so that the first value given turns into the final value given. (NOTE: This is not an order of operations activity. The purpose is to build mental math skills as students try many different orders of the steps to find which order works.)
Four pages have three steps to put in order, and the other four pages have four steps (waaaaay harder and perfect for team work!).
Perfect for team-building, enrichment, early finishers, or just good ol' fashioned fun practice! You could even have teams or tables compete to see who can solve a page the fastest!
