Mind Sparks® Teach and Tear Tape®
Teach and Tear Tapes® provide a fun way to learn a variety of lessons. Teach and Tear Tape® Math is 60 yards of learning fun! Just tear, stick and solve equations! Tape is printed with numbers 0 through 10 and math symbols include: =, +, -, ÷, x, (, and ), so it’s perfect for learning both basic and advanced math equations. Tape is repositionable and can be used on desks, tables, white boards, chalkboards, walls, paper and may other surfaces. Designed for children ages 5 and up.
- Reinforces: Operations & Algebraic Thinking
- Understand addition as putting together and adding to, and understand subtraction as taking apart and taking from
Use for learning how to count, arranging numbers in the correct order, and creating your own numbers by placing tape squares together. Early learners can make their own simple addition, subtraction, multiplication and division problems.
For more advanced play, use the open and close parentheses to create and solve more complex equations.
Extra practice in these core standards for grade K:
Decompose numbers less than or equal to 10 into pairs in more than one way, e.g., by using objects or drawings, and record each decomposition by a drawing or equation (e.g., 5 = 2 + 3 and 5 = 4 + 1).
For any number from 1 to 9, find the number that makes 10 when added to the given number, e.g., by using objects or drawings, and record the answer with a drawing or equation.
Fluently add and subtract within 5.
