Differentiation - The Power of Task Cards
The first 10 questions will introduce the concept that will build your students confidence, while the 2nd and 3rd group of ten questions will gradually increase the challenge* for your students. You can decide which students receive which questions based on their level of readiness, or simply assign them all to each student.
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.
Although that all sounds like boring academic-speak, these task cards are anything but boring! Unique, high-quality illustrations have been added for a little something extra in each question and word problem. Many are directly related to the word problem, while others are there to lighten up the atmosphere.
*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.
Just because our price is low doesn't mean our product isn't of the highest quality! We wanted to price these sets affordably, making sure to keep your budget in mind. I'm highly confident that once you try a NUMBEROCK task card set, we'll see you again!

Included in this task card set are the following TEKS Standards:
TEKS Standard 4.5A: The student is expected to represent multi‐step problems involving the four operations with whole numbers using strip diagrams and equations with a letter standing for the unknown quantity.
I can represent problems involving addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division with strip diagrams and equations.
TEKS Standard 4.5B: The student is expected to represent problems using an input‐output table and numerical expressions to generate a number pattern that follows a given rule representing the relationship of the values in the resulting sequence and their position in the sequence.
I can use input/output tables and number expressions to create number patterns following a given rule.
TEKS Standard 4.5C: The student is expected to use models to determine the formulas for the perimeter of a rectangle (l+w+l+w or 2l+2w), including the special form for perimeter of a square (4s) and the area of a rectangle (l x w).
I can write the formulas for area and perimeter of rectangles using models.
TEKS Standard 4.5D: The student is expected to solve problems related to perimeter and area of rectangles where dimensions are whole numbers.
I can solve word problems involving the perimeter and area of rectangles.
