- Student Activity when you are away from the Classroom!


Questions are separated out into equations that generate a whole number and those that generate a fractional answer.

This is a math game in which one pair of students competes against another. The first team selects a card from a deck of cards and answers the matching question on the activity sheet (example 4 of hearts). The 2 students work cooperatively to obtain an answer. If correct they get a point, if not the other team can get the rebound point. Then team 2 selects a card, discusses the answer and so on. It is cooperative because the 2 students work together, yet competitive because it pits one team against another. The students have fun and get the math work done. As well, the students can work on this activity alone, can be used as a review.

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Use variables to represent quantities in a real-world or mathematical problem, and construct simple equations and inequalities to solve problems by reasoning about the quantities.
Solve multi-step real-life and mathematical problems posed with positive and negative rational numbers in any form (whole numbers, fractions, and decimals), using tools strategically. Apply properties of operations to calculate with numbers in any form; convert between forms as appropriate; and assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies. For example: If a woman making $25 an hour gets a 10% raise, she will make an additional 1/10 of her salary an hour, or $2.50, for a new salary of $27.50. If you want to place a towel bar 9 3/4 inches long in the center of a door that is 27 1/2 inches wide, you will need to place the bar about 9 inches from each edge; this estimate can be used as a check on the exact computation.
Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication and division and of fractions to multiply and divide rational numbers.
Apply and extend previous understandings of addition and subtraction to add and subtract rational numbers; represent addition and subtraction on a horizontal or vertical number line diagram.
