Learn the operations used in math!

Operations Hop is the perfect tool for hands-on activities teaching math vocabulary and the different operations. Kinesthetic activities on this material will keep energetic elementary students engaged. Reading multi-step word problems and writing number sentences can actually be fun!

Operations Hop depicts and names the following math operations and symbols: addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, greater than, greater than or equal to, less than, and less than or equal to. Students’ math vocabulary will expand as they step and jump on the mat.

Many students struggle with word problems in math, especially when they are learning so many ways to manipulate numbers. Unfamiliar vocabulary and mixed operations can make word problems a nightmare in math class. Set your students up for success with mixed operations word problems using the Operations Hop.

Students will be able to identify, read, draw, differentiate between, and write number sentences with each operation after practice on this floor mat or sticker. Eliminate the confusion on which operation to use in a mixed operations word problem. Their problem-solving skills will improve when they are no longer restricted to sitting at a desk!

Movement-based activities will allow students to grow and retain their math vocabulary and operations knowledge. Check out our activity database to see our math vocabulary activities.
