This download comes with THREE different activities!
In Activity 1: students will use the cards as a sorting acitvity. Students will sort through the 15 cards to determine if the card requires multiplication or division to solve. This acitvity doesn't require students to compute, rather it requires students to read and analyze what is happening in each problem. Students will not worry about computing they will just focus on the procedure needed to solve. Once students sort, there is a QR Code to provide instant feedback. Students can check their work by scanning the QR Code on the sorting mat.
In Activity 2: students will work through the same 15 cards. There is a recording sheet and answer key for teachers. Students will determine if the problem is multiplication or division. They will justify their thinking and then as an extension they will actually use computation to find the answer.
In Activity 3- Cut, Paste and Solve activity. Use this as an assessment or partner work. This is also a tiered activity, tier 1 being easier than tier 3 so you can differentiate within your class. Students are given 6 problems to cut, paste (on paper of your choosing) and then solve. I will be using this on manilla paper in my classroom.
You can do which ever activity works best for your class or BOTH!! You can even differentiate within the same class using both activities!
