Product Description
This product contains one mini-lesson and 20 task cards to help students practice finding the number of possible combinations given a specific number of items in each set. In this case, students must decide how many combinations can be made using one dress, one pair of shoes, and one bracelet in each set. I have found that students frequently guess combinations. While they get several, they rarely get all of them. The mini-lesson can be read in a small group or independently and is designed to help students find combinations using a logical method. An answer sheet for students and key are included. (The answer key includes the number of combinations and all possible combinations for each task card. It is 17 pages of the 30 page file.)

Also included are the items used in the task cards (dresses, shoes, & bracelets) to be cut apart as manipulatives. Use the large set for a teacher-led center. Print about three pages (5 of each item per page) of the smaller sets so students can work through the task cards & keep a record of the sets they've found. Laminate these cards for durability.

Most of my sets can be printed in color or black & white, but this set really should be printed in color due to the students needing to know the color of the items. Laminate them for durability.
