Product Description
This set of task cards includes :
- 24 story problems (4 per page) with a Christmas shopping theme.(mount on cardstock, laminate, & they’re ready for your math center)
- A recording sheet(copy 1 per student)
- An answer key on a duplicate recording sheet
- An (optional) sheet with 8 squares in which students can “show their work” or write an explanation for how they chose to solve the problem
Each story problem includes a short scenario about a holiday “deal” on the same merchandise at two different stores. Students determine the price of the item using a variety of math concepts and skills such as multiplication (item sells “3 for \$1.50” each),
subtraction (customer receives a \$5.00 rebate), division (customer receives \$5.00 back for every \$50.00 spent), and percent (store wide sale at 25% off the sale price of a specific item, etc.) After determining the price at each store, the student selects the
cheapest price and records ”a” or “b” as the better buy.
The merchandise is kid-friendly and mostly high interest to 3rd-5th grade students (hoodies, CDs, jewelry, etc.), resulting in a high level of engagement while solving the problems.
The preview includes story problem examples as well as the recording sheets that come with the product. Thanks for your interest!
