Solve It Strips are a FUN, hands-on, puzzle-like, 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 using all operations (multiplication, division, addition and subtraction). There are 15 puzzle strips included:
-Two strips for balancing multiplication equations
-Two strips for balancing division equations
-One strip for balancing multiplication/division equations
-Four strips for balancing equations using all operations
-Three strips for balancing equations using whole numbers
-Three strips for balancing equations using order of operations
Students are challenged to use their mental math skills in solving the problems on each strip. Students begin with the “Start” strip and solve the problem 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. After students glue strips down, they color in each solution box for self-checking. Two cover options are included, along with easy directions for storage of Solve It Strips.
YOU MUST SEE THE PREVIEW FILE for an example in action!
