This is a printable collection of twelve engaging problem-solving math tasks which can be easily photocopied and left behind for your Grade 6-9 students. They were created to provide enough work for a two-day absence. Please look at the preview to see a sample from this engaging resource!
This product can used as is (with two tasks on each photocopiable page), or the pages can be cut up and used individually as task cards. The choice is yours.
Each task takes between 5-15 minutes (depending on student ability) and as a set they are designed to fill up two 45-minute class periods with very little or no teacher support. My advice would be to leave them behind ready-to-go in an emergency sub folder for any unexpected absence. These tasks can be done individually or with partners.
