Solve It Strips are a FUN, hands-on, NO PREP, math extension activity that keeps students engaged! These can be used as a math center, an early-finisher activity, with a parent-led math group, or as a mini-assessment. Solve It Strips also make fun home practice, too!
This set of Solve It Strips focuses on balancing equations with addition and subtraction problems. There are five strips for addition equations, five strips for subtraction equations, two strips adding and subtracting whole numbers to 100, and three mixed addition and subtraction strips. All strips are sums and differences within 20, except for the two whole number strips that are to 100.
Students are challenged to use their mental math skills in solving each side of the equation, finding the missing number to balance out the equation. Students begin with the “Start” strip and solve for the number on that strip. That will lead them to the second strip, and so forth, until students end up with the solution for the “FINISH” strip.
Two cover options are included, along with easy directions for storage of Solve It Strips. An answer key is also provided for easy checking and a fun Solve It Strip tracker page for students to celebrate their progress!
See the PREVIEW FILE for an example in action.
