There are nine different THIRD GRADE UNKNOWN FACTORS OR MISSING NUMBER MATH CENTERS included in this product!
There are also five different choice boards included so you can easily integrate the unknown multiplication and division factor stations into your math block.
Third graders will love using these math centers to practice their division skills! These centers align with the standard 3.OA.4 and 3.OA.6.
The nine division centers included are:
Students complete a worksheet by themselves to show their knowledge of finding the missing number in a multiplication or division equation.
Students work with a partner (cooperative learning strategies encouraged!) to solve the unknown factor worksheet together.
-Five Error Analysis Writing Prompts
Students analyze what five students did wrong when solving missing factor equations and write about what they know. The error analysis prompts include common mistakes students normally make when they first encounter unknown factor problems.
-Task Card Game
Students answer each missing number task card. If the answer is correct, the student rolls two dice and records their score. With each turn the student takes, they earn more points. The student who has the most points at the end of the game wins!
-Race to Match Game
Students race each other or the clock to match up missing factor cards to the answers as quickly as possible. A recording sheet has been included as well to allow for self-reflection.
-Line Them Up (Team Game)
Students race in partners of in teams to beat the other team. The students have to line up the missing factors in the correct order in order to get to the finish card. Each team has the same cards, but the cards are in a DIFFERENT order. This game is a class favorite!
-Math Sort (Cut and Glue Activity)
Students cut out the math sort equations and glue them in the proper place on the math sort page. Students can complete this independently or with a partner in a math center. Answer key provided for self-check.
