This task cards set contains 24 task cards to help your students practice generating, extending, and analyzing patterns. There are a variety of question types which helps prepare students for the types of problems they will encounter on standardized tests. Many cards ask students to describe the patterns in their own way.
These task cards ask students to:
-Extend a pattern and explain the pattern in words
-Determine what a specific numbered figure in a pattern will be if the pattern is extended
-Determine how many of each figure will be used if a pattern continues to a certain point
-Generate a pattern, given numbers or shapes, and explain the pattern in words
-Solve word problems involving patterns
There is a blank recording sheet provided for your students to record their answers. There is also an answer key which can be used by teachers or students to check work. The answer key is formatted exactly the same as the recording sheet to make grading quick and easy.
Ideas for use:
Task cards are great for use with guided math groups, at math centers, as at home activities, for early finishers, or for differentiating in 3rd and 5th grades. You might also find them to be useful as a supplement to those math lessons which have fewer practice problems than others. I love the idea of pulling a few cards here and there from previous used sets of cards to review and keep concepts fresh! Just assign a problem to a group or the whole class.
