Task Cards are a great way to add movement to your classroom and/or individualize learning. I use these in particular with my IB Math Studies students as we cover Topic 7 Calculus.
In these 18 Task Cards students practice the two concepts of the derivative – as a rate of change of a function and as a gradient of a graph. Students find the derivative of functions using the power rule, find the gradient of a curve at given values of x, and
find the values of x at which a curve has a given gradient.
Answer Key is included.
Suggested use of task cards: Print one set of task cards. Laminate if desired. Pair students together and set up a rotation so that each pair knows who they will hand off their task card to. Give each pair a task card and each student should have his/her own recording sheet to show work and record their answers. Time the students (three to four minutes) and then have them switch the card by passing it to another pair of students in the rotation.
You can also print a set per small group (of 3 or 4 students) and have them go through the task cards together. It’s completely up to you.
