Looking for a way to start off the year and get those minds THINKING again? Need a quick review of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division in real-world situations? These task cards are just the thing to help your students ease back into the groove of one and two-step word problems.
These word problem task cards include 24 problems that will help your students practice solving word problems involving addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division. The first 20 cards can be solved using only one step; the last 4 cards are “challenge” cards that may need multiple steps to solve. None of the division problems will have remainders, and multiplication problems go up to 2 x 2 and 1 x 4 digits.
They have a back to school theme, but could easily be used at other times during the year as well!
They are common core aligned with 4th grade standard: CCSS.4.NBT.B.5:
“Multiply a whole number of up to four digits by a one-digit whole number, and multiply two two-digit numbers, using strategies based on place value and the properties of operations. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models AND CCSS.4.NBT.B.6:
“Find whole-number quotients and remainders with up to four-digit dividends and one-digit divisors, using strategies based on place value, the properties of operations, and/or the relationship between multiplication and division. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.”
The cards would also work well as a review for fifth-graders or extension for third-graders.
This Pack Includes:
In this pack, I have provided the following options for you to use as you best see fit. My recommendation would be to print them on card stock and laminate for future use. They would be great to use for math centers, individual practice, or even a whole-group lesson.
