In this using a data chart number sense worksheet, 5th graders read an involved word problem at the top of the page. They fill in a data chart to organize the given information. They use rounding to estimate, and write a short answer about how they completed one portion of the chart.
Second graders explore a multitude of numbers. In this number sense instructional activity, 2nd graders predict the number of items in a jar as a segway into the story How Much is a Million. Students then create a book pertaining to 100 in the same style as the David Schwartz book.
In this number sense worksheet, students solve and complete 20 different types of problems that include determining various situations with number sense. First, they write the equivalent fraction in lowest terms and the equivalent decimal. Then, students determine the prime factorization of numbers listed. In addition they write each number in scientific notation.
In this number sense worksheet, students find numbers that are between fractions, complete subtraction problems, complete multiplication problems and more. Students complete 6 problems.
Students be engaged in math activities that cover a variety of state and national standards. The lesson has the goal of increasing mathematical thinking which is also known as number sense.
In this number sense worksheet, 9th graders solve and complete 20 various types of problems that include reducing fractions. First, they write the equivalent fraction in lowest terms and the equivalent decimal. Then, students determine the prime factorization of various numbers given. They also write some numbers in scientific notation.
Learners demonstrate their knowledge of numbers by translating written words into numerals and by working within groups to represent both small and large numbers. Groups can use anything in the classroom to represent their numbers.
Students add and subtract integers. In this algebra lesson, students discuss number sense as they sort numbers in the correct order. They analyze and label numbers differentiating between rational and irrational numbers.
In this racing to the finish number sense worksheet, 3rd graders work their way through a maze that includes getting a dirt bike to the finish line. They follow through the maze by going from each number to a greater number without crossing any lines.
In this pizza party number sense enrichment worksheet, 4th graders decide which number sentence best answers the question in the first 3 multiple choice questions. They complete 1 rounding problem and 1 short answer problem.
Fifth graders put each number they receive in the appropriate order in a number line or a number circle. In this numbers lesson plan, 5th graders develop number sense and manipulate the numbers in order.
Seventh graders are grouped according to their ability level with a captain who is elected by the students in that particular group. Students demonstrate their knowledge of rational and irrational numbers by defining them. Students use a venn diagram to show where the fraction would belong. Students discuss their answers with other classmates. The venn diagrams will be submitted for a grade. Students then share what they learned from this activity
First graders read a variety of stories containing mathematical word problems. They illustrate the math problems with manipulable counters.
First graders illustrate a math problem with counters while reading story books, such as Margie Burton's "Add the Animals". They demonstrate a positive learning attitude toward mathematics and communicate clearly in oral, artistic, written, and nonverbal form.
In this developing number sense worksheet, students play math games such as; working with remainders, solving problems, division brain power, and more. Students complete 6 activities.
First graders explore number sense by utilizing cooking equipment in a counting activity. In this estimating lesson, 1st graders collaborate in small groups and view a tutorial about counting quickly while looking at a group of objects. Students utilize cookie sheets to complete a class estimation project.
Increase the depth of your class's fractional number sense with this number-ordering activity. Given four fractions, each with different numerators and denominators, young learners are asked to place them in order from smallest to largest. This challenging task encourages students to choose from three strategies for comparing fractions; using common denominators, common numerators, and benchmark fractions. Solutions will vary, so allow for a class discussion in which different approaches to solving the problem are shared.
You don't have to be an ancient Egyptian to decipher fractions in this activity that focuses on adding fractions with unlike denominators and developing fraction number sense. Egyptians represented fractions differently than we do. They expressed fractions through expressions using unit fractions in which no two denominators were alike: e.g., 2/3 was written as 1/2 + 1/6. Fifth graders are asked to solve two sets of problems on this worksheet: the first set constructs fractions and the second deconstructs fractions. A formal lesson plan is not included, but the information on the three-page document is complete and ready to use in the classroom.
Adding fractions with unlike denominators can be cloudy, but attaching the fractions to real-life math can add to fraction number sense. Alex needed to run only a mile, will completing the training in two segments satisfy this requirement? Yes, it will. Especially when Alex ran 1/2 mile to his friend's house and 5/8 mile to his grandma's house. There are two ways to solve this problem and both are explained on the commentary pages. The activity would be either a great lead-in to working with fractions, or a quick check-in for understanding. 
What fun, simple number value activities these are! Using dot cards and ten frames, 34 educational games are briefly described to help diversify these great strategies. For example, in the game "I Wish I Had..." the teacher holds up a value card and says, "I wish I had ___." The scholars then determine how many more dots are needed to fulfill the wish. Templates are available for dot cards, five frames, ten frames, and more!
