This task cards set contains 16 task cards to help your students practice extending and generating patterns involving geometric towers. There are a variety of question types which helps prepare students for the types of problems they will encounter on standardized tests.
These task cards ask students to:
-Determine the number of blocks in the Nth tower, given a data table and drawings of the first 3 towers
-Draw pictures and complete a data table to extend a block tower pattern
-Determine appropriate operations for extending a block tower pattern
-Determine the number of blocks in a tower with a given number of stories
-Determine the number of stories in a tower with a given number of blocks
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.
