The mental math problems below are both fun and challenging. Children must listen, combine the information, remember the information, and perform the operation. It is a playful way to reinforce facts and offers an alternative to rote memorization.
This set is appropriate for children in grades 3-4, depending on their math levels, but you can alter the operations or content to differentiate for individual needs.
After you complete these problems, have the children create their own. Encourage them to use groups of items that are familiar to everyone. (It may be helpful to brainstorm ideas and themes together.)
