Math Challenge- Four Fours

My kids LOVE a good math challenge, and this one is always a hit! Four Fours!

Four Fours requires the students to create an equation for each number, 0-30, by using the digit 4 four times.  (4, 4, 4, 4)  (yes, they need to use all four of the fours in each equation- they will ask!)

For example:

0 = 4 + 4 - 4 - 4

Some of the numbers are easier to solve than others, but others are quite tricky.  My students enjoy the friendly competition with their classmates to see who can discover an equation for the different numbers.

If you are interested in doing this activity with your class, you can get a free copy of the Four Fours recording sheet in my Teachers Pay Teachers shop!
