This worksheet will help students determine whether a group of objects (up to 20) has an odd or even number of members.
See the fact file below for more information on odd and even numbers or alternatively, you can download our 23-page Operations and Algebraic Thinking: Odd and Even Numbers worksheet pack to utilise within the classroom or home environment.
Key Facts & Information
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to determine whether a group of objects (up to 20) has an odd or even number of members, e.g., by pairing objects or counting them by 2s; write an equation to express an even number as a sum of two equal addends.
A Note for the Teacher
When teaching Odd and Even Numbers, ensure that the learner:
- Understands how to group objects in twos.
- Use counters or beans to count with and for grouping.
An even number can be divided into two equal parts. An odd number cannot be divided into two equal parts.
An even number can be expressed by a double addition fact. Example: Sam has 6 crayons. Can Sam share the 6 crayons evenly with his friend Jim?
In this sum, we notice that if Sam shares the 6 crayons with his friend evenly, they will each get 3. This is known as the double addition fact. When the same number is added twice, the sum is an EVEN number.
If Sam had 7 crayons and was asked if he could share them equally with Jim, let’s see what happens:
Here, we notice that when sharing the crayons, one person will get more than the other. Hence, the additives in this sum are two different numbers.
We, therefore, say the number 7 is odd.
