Free Keys to Math

Math Fact Solutions: Here is a simple solution to help your students with math facts, multiplication, addition, subtraction, and other subjects. I hope you enjoy my free keys to math. They are a great math class solution and can be used as an alternative to math flash cards.

Print the keys on the next page on cardstock paper.
•Use a hole puncher to punch a hole in the key.
•Place a page reinforcement around the circle (optional).
•Cut as many key notches as you would like.
•Add a key ring, and you will have your Keys to Math set.

A Flash Card Alternative
On one side of the key, write a problem. Then write the solution on the back of the key. You can use addition, subtraction, multiplication, and many other types of problems. In fact, your Keys to Math will work for other subjects too. For example, you can write a contraction on one side of the key and a two words that make up the contraction on the other side. When you use these with students, experiment with using different colors of paper for different problems. For example, all addition problems using 3s may be on blue paper and problems with 4s may be on red paper. You can also group like problems on different key rings. Please leave a comment to let me know how you used your Keys to Math.

  2. Hi, Robin!

    Found you through Manic Monday.
    Your keys are a great idea. I've done something simiar with sight words on a keyring, but your idea of using colorful keys really takes it up a notch! I also like the idea of grouping by colors, which should make it much easier to quickly sort and individualize the rings for students.
    Thanks so much for sharing!

  3. What a cute idea!! The kids could even make their own! Different rings could have different fact families . . . the wheels are churning! Do you mind if I feature these in a future post on my blog??
