There are a variety of skills covered: addition, subtraction, creating and solving word problems, number combinations, fair shares, comparing numbers, building number patterns, coin combinations, fair trades, fractions (1/2 & 1/4) and more! Many of the prompts promote higher order thinking and multiple solutions.
