Give young students a head start on math tests with this collection of open-ended math activities. Each activity starts with a simple math-related picture or graphic. Students devise a math problem related to the picture then solve their own problem. This gives them insight into how math problems are formulated and helps teachers assess students’ level of understanding. A great way to build students’ math confidence! For use with Grades K-2.
