Predict and confirm if a number is odd or even by pairing socks using this fun set of worksheets.

Isn’t it Odd? Or is it Even?

In this worksheet, students will use the pairing strategy to determine whether a number is odd or even. They are provided with a one or two-digit number and are asked to predict if they will be colouring in an even or odd number of socks.

The physical act of colouring the socks and counting the socks provides a concrete representation of numbers. By ‘pairing’ the socks based on the number that is shown on the worksheet, students are able to understand the fundamental distinction between odd and even quantiities.

Learning About Odd and Even Numbers

Understanding odd and even numbers is an important concept in mathematics. Here are just a few reasons it’s an important concept to cover:

1. Helps develop number sense and a deeper understanding of the number system.
2. Knowledge of odd and even numbers is essential when performing arithmetic operations such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.
3. Odd and even numbers play a fundamental role in divisibility rules. By recongising whether a number is odd or even, students can determine its divisibility by 2.
4. Odd and even numbers form the basis of logical reasoning. Students learn to make deductions, predictions and generalisations based on the properties of odd and even numbers, improving their logical thinking skills.
