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.
The Price Advantage
Other 3rd Grade TEKS task card sets of comparable quality are selling for $5.00 and up. With this set, you don't have to choose between quality and price. These sets were priced keeping your budget firmly in mind.

Included in this task card set are the following TEKS Standards:
TEKS Standard 3.5A:
The student is expected to represent one‐and two‐step problems involving addition and subtraction of whole numbers to 1,000 using pictorial models, number lines, and equations.
I can do one and two-step addition and subtraction problems of whole numbers up to 1,000.
TEKS Standard 3.5B:
The student is expected to represent and solve one and two step multiplication and division problems within 100 using arrays, strip diagrams, and equations.
I can solve one and two-step multiplication and division problems more easily by using models like arrays and diagrams.
TEKS Standard 3.5C:
The student is expected to describe a multiplication expression as a comparison such as 3 x 24 represents 3 times as much as 24.
I can understand multiplication expressions in both written and numerical form.
TEKS Standard 3.5D:
The student is expected to determine the unknown whole number in a multiplication or division equation relating three whole numbers when the unknown is either a missing factor or product.
I can solve a multiplication or division equation where there is a missing factor or product. By doing this, I can show I've moved beyond simple memorization of my multiplication and division facts.
TEKS Standard 3.5E:
The student is expected to represent real‐world relationships using number pairs in a table and verbal descriptions.
I can look at a table that shows any something and how much of that something there is, but I can also understand and interpret the data I'm looking at.
