This activity allows for differentiation because TWO sets of partner activities are included. The first “Partner Power” version (labeled #1 and #2) consists of simpler questions. The other “Partner Power” version (labeled *1 and *2) is more challenging. Each page has twelve problems for the student to solve and will require students to add, subtract, multiply, and divide decimals.
If not using the activity as a differentiated lesson, it can be used for two days of practice with the more challenging problems given after the easier ones.
This versatile activity could also be used in math centers, as a “partner quiz”, or as one of several assignment choices in differentiating decimal lessons. Answer keys are included.
Lesson Focus: Calculations involving addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of decimals
