PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Need a challenge for your higher-level math students? I created these 24 task cards to challenge students to think critically about numbers and mathematical operations.

To complete these task cards, students will need to know basic multiplication, division, addition, and subtraction strategies. There are also a few cards that use the square root (and its symbol). I love these task cards to help reinforce the relationship between numbers and mathematical operations.

You may choose to use these task cards for early finishers, math rotations, in small groups, or even as a special treat for those students who want an extra challenge. You may also decide whether your students use a calculator or simply pencil and paper with to find the solutions for task cards. Additionally, you can give your students an extra challenge to complete each card within a certain time frame, say 3 minutes, and have them set a timer for each card.

Each card has between 3 and 10 answers/equations.
