Math Starters 2


  • Pull out the important information

  • Decide what operation to use (add, subtract, multiply, divide)

  • When in doubt – DRAW it out (make a picture or diagram)

#1:  There are 20 kids in Derek’s class.  His class formed 2 equal teams for a kickball game.

  • How many kids were on each team?
  • If 4 students were absent tomorrow, how many students will be on each team?

#2: Lin and Karina volunteer to walk dogs in their neighborhood.  They each walk the same number of dogs.

  • If 18 dogs need walks, how many dogs will each girl take?
  • If their friend Lauren helps, how many dogs will each girl take?
