Students will create their own equation and inequality number sentences and practice place value in one math activity.
Place Value Numbers: Create Equation and Inequality Number Sentences is a set of numbers and symbols drawn in tens and ones. Below each number or symbol, a student completes a tens and ones place value chart and has space to record the standard form, the expanded form, and the word form for each number/symbol value.
Students begin by choosing numbers and symbols to create a number sentence. Greater than and less than Inequality number sentences, and addition, subtraction and multiplication number sentences are possible with this activity. Students will circle the tens and number the ones that form each number or symbol. If there is a group of 10 ones, they will circle it as a ten. Students will count the tens and ones and record the place value math. Once the students have completed the math, have them choose two markers, one color for the tens and another for the ones and color (as shown in samples). Cut and glue completed number sentences on 6” x 18” construction paper.
This product includes:
• Numbers and Symbols to create number sentences
• a key
• 2 completed samples sheets to create sample number sentences of your own
Once students know regrouping, have them add the value of all the numbers and symbols to discover the value of each number sentence.
