These task cards are a real challenge for students practicing multiplication, area, and distributive property skills! These 8 cards provide students with a variety of problems geared towards problem solving skills and their knowledge of area. I use these as math stations/ centers in my classroom and have seen great results with students' abilities to problem solve and think outside the box! They're great for small group/ partner work, and even differentiated work for students that have already achieved mastery and need that extra push. I've included a recording sheet and the answers to the questions.
