  • Solve Around the Room: Post cards around the room and have students move around to locate and solve each card. Students can check work as they finish or as a class at the end of the activity.

A Note on QR Readers
QR readers are very easy to use. Just go to the app store for your SMARTphone or tablet. You can even download a reader onto the newer iPod Touches. My QR reader will even read text codes (like the ones on these task cards) without an internet connection. You just point the camera on your device at the code, like you are taking a picture. Press the scan button on your QR reader app. The answer will appear on the device.

I have over 15 years experience working with elementary aged students. My specialty is making math products.

I believe:

  • Math can and should be fun.
  • Learners need lots and lots of practice with manipulatives and hands-on strategies before they can solve abstract problems.
  • We need to let children explore concepts and not force them to memorize formulas to solve problems.
