Do you need the perfect activities for your algebraic relationships math centers this year? We’ve got just the fit! Whether you're introducing dependent and independent variables at the start of the unit or representing situations with known & unknown numbers in the form of "AB=Y" in advance of the STAAR test, our professionally edited questions allow you to confidently prepare your students for TEKS standards 6.6A – 6.6C (3 SETS) with 90 task cards that are fun, standard-focused, and thoughtfully differentiated.
As a bonus, each set includes full page digital images of each illustrated task card which can be used to upload onto platforms you may be using already - like Google Classroom, Nearpod, or some other learning management system you prefer.
We cordially invite you to take a look at the PREVIEW above by clicking on the green button above this description.
✔ 90 uniquely illustrated task cards, with additional sets that have colorful border options.

✔ 3 printable title pages with "I Can Statements".
✔ 6 printable labels with "I Can Statements".
✔ Creatively designed answer keys which match similarly designed recording sheets for easy grading.
✔ A click and learn FAQ document which provides helpful answers to questions you might have about your set.
The Differentiation Advantage
This set of task cards has been organized in a way that allows for seamless differentiation. Cards #1-10 are the least difficult in each set and can be given to any students who might be struggling to gain confidence. Cards #11-20 are just slightly more challenging, while the last 10 questions require a bit more critical thinking being primarily long-form word problems.
Methodology - How We Designed the Problems
Each question is aligned to the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) state standards, and are specifically designed to meet documented student expectations for that standard. The questions are patterned on previously released State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) Math Tests. The questions can be used for guided practice and independent practice.
*Careful attention has been put into each question so they won't be so challenging as to discourage your students, while still being rigorous enough to prepare your students for testing and assessment.
The Engagement Advantage
Most of the illustrations on our task cards come directly from our musical math animations that can be seen on YouTube or, alternatively, completely ad-free on our website, numberock.com.
We highly recommend supplementing these task cards with our math videos. Doing so will provide an unprecedented level of engagement as your students remember the music, which stimulates their memory, and then see the characters they have been watching on their printables and activities. We’ve also added a smattering of (wholesome) humor into the wording of the questions. All that being said, I’m highly confident that the engagement levels in your classroom are going to surpass even your highest expectations.
