“Math Mental Medley” requires students to solve word problems represented verbally and record the answers on a provided answer sheet. I read each problem once, and students have only 90 seconds to answer it. I use a stop watch to manage time while performing this activity.
“Math Mental Medley” helps students listen, manage time, and enhance their calculation and problem solving skills. This activity is a good motivation for logical-mathematical students.
Grade five students are learning how to multiply and divide decimal numbers. I integrated this activity in their classroom, so I read five problems and students made their best to solve the problems as fast as they can correctly.
