Number Relationships

  1. You will need to prepare square grids showing different numbers for this activity. You will color some of the squares in and leave the others plain.
  2. For example: Make a 3 x 4 grid and color in 9 squares. So there will be 9 squares filled in and 3 blank.
  3. Your students will need to pick a grid and determine the relationship between the 2 numbers represented by the different colored squares. For instance, in the previous example they would need to understand that 9 and 3 are related because 9 / 3 = 3 or 3 x 3 = 9.
  4. Have grid cards available showing all different kinds of relationships. You may even use percents and fractions for more advanced students.
