Product Description

Practice a large variety of core math skills in this engaging and versatile activity!

Each day students are given a number which is "the answer". Their job is to think of as many questions (or equations) that match the number. The number increases each day, and so will the kinds of equations students create as they learn from others.

Click the preview to see the different layouts and skills covered! There are editable pages included.

This set provides 100 lessons with NO PREP and no copying! Just project the lesson onto any white board and students fill in the answers. Then print the pages for students to complete in class, as early finishers, in small groups or even as home practice.

For example, if the answer is 4, the answer could be: 2+2=4, 10-6=4, 2x2=4, 1+1+1+1=4, or even 4+1-1+1-1=4.

Explore rules for adding zero or doubles, and watch students learn from each other each day.

Note: These are Power Point files for projecting, but can also be printed as workbooks! Just select the pages you wish to print, and choose PRINT --> SELECTED PAGES.

This is Unit 13 of the Full Year Collection of Paperless Warm Ups - see the full list of 14 units below.

Daily Math Warm Ups: Paperless Projectable Math Activities

• These pages are meant to be PROJECTED to guide your daily math practice. Discuss with students and invite them to come up and fill in missing answers using dry erase markers.

• This format means there is NO PREP - just choose a page and start your discussion.

It's so quick that you can do it whenever you have an extra 5 minutes, or to warm up for your math lessons each day with a quick review of previous skills.

• You can PRINT these pages to use as differentiated workbooks or "targeted practice booklets" for students who need extra practice in class, or to send home.

• It's COLLABORATIVE, and after a few lessons your students will likely begin to work together to solve the problems or figure out answers as a team! Quite often I project the pages as students are coming to the carpet so they have thinking time, and they love the challenge of figuring out the directions and answers before we even start talking about it!

• It's DIFFERENTIATED. Whether working as a large group on the board, or in printed workbooks, each student is free to find their OWN way to write equations. Some students may use simple addition, while others use multiplication or division to reach the same answer.

This is a great way to assess your students' mathematical thinking in an authentic way. (Note: If you choose the Daily Math Warm Ups Bundle, a 300 page intervention binder is included for assessment purposes as well.)

Since there is no prep for these lessons, you can project them whenever you have an extra five minutes in your day. You’ll be amazed at how much EXTRA math practice you can fit into each day!

**NOTE: This unit is available as part of a Full Year Bundle within which each single unit is significantly reduced in price. If you are considering more than one math unit, you will want to take a quick peek at the bundle, which includes an intervention binder for the whole year!
