Product Description
Are your students ready for Algebra?

After years of teaching algebra to students that just weren’t ready, I would ask myself what do I really want my students to be able to do? What skills just need refreshing and what skills need reteaching. Using these cards has helped me to identify basic weaknesses and to address them early in the school year.

There are many diagnostic tests available, but students are reluctant to face page after page of test questions. Put those same questions on cards and reluctance disappears. These cards are more engaging than any test.

Included in this set are 60 task cards to help assess Algebra Readiness.

The 60 cards are organized by topic. As you go through the cards with a student, set aside any missed cards. Discuss those missed cards to assess the level of understanding. If there are more than three missed within a topic, provide additional practice with that topic.

These task cards cover the topics:
Integers (#1-10)
Fractions (#11-20)
Decimals and Percents (#21-30)
Exponents and Square Roots(#31-40)
Geometry (#41-50)
Graphing (#51-60)

There are four 4” x 5” cards on each page with an answer key and recording sheet for student use.

Print the cards on cardstock and cut them apart. You can laminate them for durability. They can be stored in baggies or attached to a ring (use a single hole punch).


Task cards are great for differentiating your material. Use them as daily warm-ups, for intervention, extra practice for early finishers, whole class games, paired activities ... the ideas are numerous.
There are many class games that can be played; Scoot, I Have-Who Has, Speed “Math”ing to name a few.
