Divide your students into teams of four. Each team works together to solve the problems. Give each team a card as their goal.

Card 1: Your goal is to have the smallest number.

Card 2: Your goal is to have the highest number.

Card 3: Your goal is to have a number that is close to 50.

Instructions: Based on the objective of the cards, students will have to decide what two multiplication problems to write on the whiteboard. On each team, have one student write two multiplication problems on the whiteboard. Two students jump to determine the answer. The fourth team member will add the products and see if it fits the goal that their card indicates. If not, they will modify the problems until it meets their goal.
