Hello Math Friends! Winson went on a walk. He wonders if you can use the numbers on the mailbox he found in the image to create an equation that will have a solution of 24? You can use any operation you would like: addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division. BUT, you can only use each number (from the mailbox) once in your equation. AND, you can not combine numbers to make a 2-digit number in your equation. ALSO, each number has to be used in your equation. Ready to try? Tap on the . Use the , , or tools to create your equation on the template provided. OPTIONAL: Use the to record your strategy to show how you get the solution. Move the as you talk through your equation to share your thinking. Tap the green to add your response to your journal.
As a co-creator of the Global Math Task Tech Challenge for 24, I try to share out 4 numbers every week on Twitter for students to create equations that equal 24 and share their strategies with a global audience. Follow @globalmathtask on Twitter to find the weekly challenges or check this blog post for more information : http://gmttc.blogspot.com/p/gmttc24.html I'd love to have you join in the fun of connecting students to share their learning. #gmttc24.
