Improve your students problem solving skills with these addition and subtraction (within 100) word problems
. This is the third of three sets of problem solving task cards that I have created. This particular set contains more difficult problems (including many multistep problems) and they are typically the ones that I use later in the school year. There are a total of 60 problems - 3 sets of 20 cards. I use one each day as part of my daily math meeting, but you could use them as a small group activity, as a math center, or in student math journals.
Although these cards were created to address the second grade standard (2.OA.A.1), they could also easily be used with 1st and 3rd grade students needing remediation or enrichment.
I have provided each problem in 3 different sizes.
The full size page is perfect for displaying on a problem of the day board or smart board. The medium size cards (1/4 page) work great as task cards or for use in a math center. The smallest cards (in black and white) are ideal for copying, cutting, and pasting into student math journals. Answer keys are included. The cards were designed to progressively more difficult and with so many to choose from, it will be easy to differentiate your instruction to meet the various needs of your students.
And with 3 sets of 20 cards (60 cards total), it's like getting 3 sets of task cards in one resource!
I have created 2 other sets of problem solving task cards (click on the links below).
You can also purchase the complete set containing the word problems from all 3 sets at a discounted price and giving you a total of 180 problems!
