Activities range in grade levels. Many activities are easily adaptable to a variety of grade levels through the use of constraints. See below for information on constraints. Grade level 3-6 grade.
Several activities use Cuisenaire Rods. PLEASE PRINT using the setting of “ACTUAL PAGE SIZE.” This will ensure rods fit the pages that need the rods to fit.
For pages with no answer sheet, answers vary per student. Students may express an answer using different operations and expressions.
Activities can be differentiated and made to related math concepts currently being taught through constraints.
For example, if studying fractions, constrain the student to build expressions using only fractions or to include at least one fraction.
If working on two or three digit equations, constrain the student to create an expression using two or three digit numbers. For example, 3 = 100 – 97.
For multiplication, 3 = 3 x 1, or require students to use more than one operation. For example, 3 = (5 x 3) – (4 x 3)
