My students love to prepare and study for tests using my math sorting card activities. This activity I use throughout the year to encourage student understanding of word problems. I encourage students to lable a table with addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. I then hand them these cards to sort. Students love it. It also prepares them with a wonderful understanding of math words and eliminates anxiety as they conquer word problems. I use this activity bi-weekly and have competitions between teams to see who can get the most correct. Whenever students work on word problems I then remind them to look for the math "trigger" words.
