A set of addition dominoes to use in the classroom when applying the split strategy.

## Split Strategy Activity

The split strategy involves breaking down numbers into smaller parts to simplify the addition process. By incorporating these dominoes, an engaging and tactile manipulative, students can develop a deeper understanding of numbers, enhance their computational skills and foster a love for mathematics. The addition sums featured on these dominoes have been created specifically for students to use the split strategy.

## How to Play Split Strategy Dominoes

• Shuffle the dominoes and place them face down in the playing area.
• Split the dominoes equally among the players.
• The player with the domino with “Split Strategy Dominoes” in the starting position lays down that domino in the middle of the playing area.
• Take turns matching the addition sum with the correct answer while explaining how they used the split strategy to work it out with the group.
