These card sorts were designed for students to use after experiences solving addition and subtraction equations with number discs like Singapore math. For the card sorts to be most effective, allow students to work in pairs to solve them. This creates discussion which will provide an environment for evaluation one of Bloom's higher levels of thinking. In each card sort, there is an extra card which is meant to create more discussion among student pairs. The extra card may look like the match to another card. This was done in order to target discussion around some misconceptions students may develop with addition and subtraction.
Each card sort is four pages long. The first two pages are the cards for the students to cut out. The second two pages are for students to glue their cards onto.

All of these sorts are adding and subtracting within 100 in accordance with common core standards:
1.NBT.4 Add within 100, including adding a two-digit number and a one-digit number, and adding a two-digit number and a multiple of 10, using concrete models or drawings and strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction; relate the strategy to a written method and explain the reasoning used. Understand that in adding two-digit numbers, one adds tens and tens, ones and ones; and sometimes it is necessary to compose a ten.
2.NBT.5 Fluently add and subtract within 100 using strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction.
