Math Activity: The Sixty Second Sweep
The Sixty Second Sweep- This Math activity only takes 60 seconds, and it allows students to practice their multiplication fluency backwards and forward. Instead of thinking of their multiplication tables as 2 times 3, they must look at the number ’36′ and be able to determine which two numbers will multiply to give them that answer. This challenges to know their fact families, and you will be SO thankful when you start your fractions unit (simplifying=cake!). Since this activity is timed, students are super engaged and are motivated by the competition.
