About The Answer Is…
This is a wonderful learning task for your students!
Your students will love the mystery and challenge as they work to complete the number expressions with missing numbers! Each task page has six number expressions with missing numbers. All six expressions must equal the given number. Your students start out with the answer and must complete the expressions to equal the number in the center of the page!
These tasks are aligned with Common Core Mathematics Standards and are meant to be used to develop your students’ number sense as they implement the models and strategies embedded in the Common Core Standards.
Use these tasks for Homework, Classwork, Whole-Group Lessons/Discussions, Small-Group Guided Lessons, Math Centers, or as Mini-Assessments.
Your students can work in small groups or with partners to solve the task and then have them present and discuss their solutions. Classmates can offer feedback and alternative strategies!
While using these tasks your students will be challenged to use knowledge of operations and their inverses to complete number sentences that equal a given quantity.
Each expression has space for students to write or draw an explanation of the strategies they used to find the missing number in each equation.
The tasks are designed so your students will develop fluency in adding and subtracting whole numbers as well as understand the relationship between multiplication and repeated addition.
While they work to solve the problems, your students will develop an understanding of the inverse relationship between addition and subtraction and between multiplication and division, and apply their understanding to finding problem solutions.
