These task cards allow students to practice translating algebraic word problems into algebraic equations. Once they have translated it, they then must solve for the unknown term. It incorporates vocabulary that most students have trouble with, as well. One of the best parts about this activity is that it can be differentiated. Students who are struggling with this skill might only work on 8 tasks cards, rather than all of them. Students who show mastery of the skill will be challenged working on some of the last problems. It meets a wide variety of needs.
I hope your students enjoy using these task cards!
