Become a numeral or math symbol so your class can act out solutions to math problems. Addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division can be interactive!
Your teacher may decide in advance what numerals and math functions or grouping symbols to use. Use math problems in your book or invent new ones. Either a teacher or student can lead this game.
To begin playing, the leader asks students to write either a numeral or a math sign (such as +, -, or =) on an individual dry-erase board with Crayola® Dry-Erase Markers.
The leader calls out the first numeral of a math problem. Students with that numeral come to the front of the room (or wherever there is space) and hold up their boards.
Next, the leader calls out a symbol such as "plus." Students with that sign stand next to students with the numeral that was called first.
The leader continues to call out numerals and symbols until a math problem is stated by each group of students. Be creative in making your statements!
Now, ask which classmates have white boards that are part of the solution? Does someone need to erase or add a numeral or symbol to state it? If your friends only wrote one numeral on their boards, does it take more than one student to solve the problem?
