This freebie is a math mat to help students practice math problems with parentheses. Print the page out (card stock would be best) and laminate or put in a page protector to be used with a whiteboard marker. Provide students with three die. Three different colors would be ideal, but if you only have one color, that is fine. Students roll the die and place in the empty boxes on the math mat. If the die are different colors, you tell the students that they are to place certain colors in certain boxes. They would then rewrite the problem with numerals on the math mat. You can have the students either work out the problem on their math mat with a dry erase marker or they could copy it into a math journal or notebook and solve there.
