Mathematical Tasks; 6th Grade Test Prep Mixed Review
One of my favorite activities to use in my class are Mathematical Tasks. I use these Mathematical Tasks for partnering activities, group work, stations, independent practice, assessment prep, or in my centers. Included in this set are 10 Task Cards (there are 4 tasks on each card), partner and group recording sheets, black and white copies, and an answer key. I created this Mathematical Task for my 6th grade class, but it could also be used in a 7th or 8th grade class too.
This set of Mathematical Tasks asks students to complete the following types of tasks:
Find the GCF for a given set of numbers.
Find the LCM for a given set of numbers.
Find the percent of a number
Divide fractions and mixed numbers
Reflect points in the coordinate plane
Order of operations with exponents
Distance on the coordinate plane
I recommend printing these task cards in color and laminating for years of use. Students are more motivated when they see the color tasks.
