A set of 10 progressive multiplication and division sums. Children need to solve equations mentally leading them on a trail towards a target planet. The first challenge starts at the Sun and then work through all the planets and the final challenge ends with the dwarf planet Pluto. Use to develop a range of mental strategies. Aligned to Common Core State Standards: 2.OA.4 , 3.OA.1, 4.OA.1, 5.OA.1
Multiplication and Division Challenges
Interpret a multiplication equation as a comparison, e.g., interpret 35 = 5 × 7 as a statement that 35 is 5 times as many as 7 and 7 times as many as 5. Represent verbal statements of multiplicative comparisons as multiplication equations.
I've heard the Planet Challenge is great but don't have the resources and can't seem to find them anywhere online. Do you still have a copy of the resources that you can share with me and others please?
Great way for students to have fun while learning!
