These 5th grade task cards are great to use to incorporate into your math unit on fractions. Students will use the skills that they have learned to make generalizations based on patterns they notice in these types of equations. There are 32 task cards and the answer key is included for your convenience. :)
These task cards are great to use for a game of Scoot!, homework, centers, warm-ups, enrichment, examples in math journals/notes, whole group on an interactive whiteboard/projector, or just for a fun learning activity! Copy your task cards, laminate them, cut them out, and keep them for years to come! Then, just print a copy of the student task card recording sheet for each child in your class and your students are all set for some fun!
*These task cards would also work well for enriching the content for your fourth grade students or as an intervention for 6th graders.
Comparing the size of a product to the size of one factor on the basis of the size of the other factor, without performing the indicated multiplication.
Explaining why multiplying a given number by a fraction greater than 1 results in a product greater than the given number (recognizing multiplication by whole numbers greater than 1 as a familiar case); explaining why multiplying a given number by a fraction less than 1 results in a product smaller than the given number; and relating the principle of fraction equivalence a/b = (n × a)/(n × b) to the effect of multiplying a/b by 1.
These task cards pair nicely with my activities and assessment resource on the same standard (5.NF.B.5), which can be found by clicking here.
