True of False Equations

Hi, Determining whether an equation is true or false (CCSS 1.OA.D.7) has recently become one of my favorite math standards. Kids who are not fluent with basic facts often tire of many types of practice, but are loving sorting equation cards by whether they are true or false. In working with these materials, they are becoming more fluent with basic facts while also developing problem solving skills.

Today, I'd like to share a freebie with you. It's a set of 48 true or false equation cards for addition within ten. These cards can be used for 2 different levels of Scoot games ~ everything you need is included. If you have't played Scoot with your kids yet, here's a great chance to try it out! (These equation cards are also handy for partner work and sorting activities.)

        I am also offering a product which includes ten levels of True/False equation cards and activities on my Teachers pay Teachers shop.  The levels are:
  • Addition within 10
  • Subtraction within 10
  • Mixed Addition/Subtraction within 10
  • Addition within 20
  • Subtraction within 20
  • Mixed Addition/Subtraction within 20
  • Addition Problems within 10 such as 5 + 1 = 4 + 3
  • Subtraction  Problems within 10 such as 8 - 1 =  9 - 2
  • Mixed +/- Problems within 10 such as 8 + 1 =  10 - 1
  • Mixed +/- Problems within 20 such as 18 - 9 =  7 + 2
Here's my very favorite part of all this: My son, Keith, took an interest in this product. He's 19 years old and is studying Computer Science at Binghamton University. He decided to make an app out of it. We've been having a blast working together and the app is now available for iPad on the Apple App Store. Here are a couple screen shots of this app.
