This is a set of teaching task cards that allows the students to see the progression of steps from beginning fraction word problems to final answers.
Cards 1-9 focus on Addition of mixed numbers, and cards 10-18 focus on subtraction of mixed numbers.
You can teach the concepts of addition and subtraction separately, or you can use the cards as a review of both topics.
The cards will be laid out in the colors of the rainbow when the students have completed a problem. This is a great self-checking tool that allows small groups to discuss the progression of steps needed to accurately solve problems.
(ROY G BIV) RED, ORANGE, YELLOW, GREEN, BLUE, INDIGO, & VIOLET
The red card has the problem, the orange has the problem set up, the yellow has the least common denominator, the green has equivalent fractions, the blue has the operation (add/subtract), the indigo has simplifying fractions if possible, and the violet card has the final answer labeled.
*This set is wonderful for second language learners to listen to others discuss as well as have success due to color coding!
