Grades 2-3 (ON LEVEL)
Grades K-1 (ENRICH)
Grades 4-5 (RETEACH)
Overview and Purpose
Assess your student’s or child’s ability to make equal groups and find the number of groups using this quick two-problem exit slip.
2.OA.3.4 ~ Use addition to find the total number of objects arranged in rectangular arrays with up to 5 rows and up to 5 columns; write an equation to express the total as a sum of equal addends.
3.OA.1.2 ~ Interpret whole-number quotients of whole numbers, e.g., interpret 56 ÷ 8 as the number of objects in each share when 56 objects are partitioned equally into 8 shares, or as a number of shares when 56 objects are partitioned into equal shares of 8 objects each. For example, describe a context in which a number of shares or a number of groups can be expressed as 56 ÷ 8.
The student/child can make equal groups and find the number of groups.
