- Deal 5 cards to each player or team of players.
- Players use 3 of the cards to get a sum as close to 20 as possible
- The difference between the sum and 20 determines the score for that round
- Record the equation and score on the scorecard
- Collect the 3 cards that each student used – they keep the 2 cards they didn’t use
- Deal 3 new cards to each player or team
- Lowest score wins
- If students are having difficulty finding the sum with numeral cards, try using 10-frame cards
I posted about SafeshareTV a couple of weeks ago. I’m attaching a list of videos I’ve compiled with SafeshareTV links. I know there are a lot more great math videos out there. Do you have any favorites?
I’ve been participating in a book study at Math Coach’s Corner http://mathcoachscorner.blogspot.com/2013/09/welcome-back-to-our-online-book-study.html
The book is Math Sense: the Look, Sound, and Feel of Effective Instruction by Christine Moynihan. Even if you don’t have the book, you will learn something reading the discussion each week. She discusses a new chapter each Monday and usually has some sort of freebee related to the chapter. The author of the book is participating in the discussion too. Check it out.
A quick post to share a new discovery. Use this website for any YouTube Videos you want to show students. It takes out all the ads! I’m working on a list of videos to share.
