This strip diagrams and equations test prep bundle is a no frills all action product meant to cement students' knowledge of strip diagrams and equations to prepare them for testing. All ten of the activities included were created entirely in black and white to save on colored ink, and make for easy use of the copy machine.
I use these activities in class and with my testing study group after school.
It was created with the following standards in mind:
-represent multi-step problems involving the four operations with whole numbers using strip diagrams and equations with a letter standing for an unknown quantity 4.5(A)
CCSS.Math.Content.4.OA.A.2 Multiply or divide to solve word problems involving multiplicative comparison, e.g. by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem, distinguishing multiplicative comparison from additive comparison
CCS.MATH.CONTENT.4.OA.A.3 Solve multi-step word problems posed with whole numbers and having whole-number answers using the four operations, including problems in which remainders must be interpreted. Represent these problems using equations with a letter standing for the unknown quantity. Assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies including rounding.
All of the activities included are designed to be used to fill in any gaps that students may have understanding strip diagrams as they relate to the four operations and mathematical equations.
Each activity can be completed in a variety of settings to meet the needs of every learner in your classroom.
