TEKS: 6.3(E) TSW multiply and divide rational numbers fluently.
This product is an excellent check for understanding in more than one way. The card sort intends to have students sort out which answers should be positive and negative (before solving) based on the clues in the problems. Students are required to sort the problems into positive and negative sides, then identify the reason why they could predict the outcome of those problems. Afterwards students will solve the problems which include decimal multiplication and division. With students working in pairs, the Teacher can establish several checkpoints through the activity in order to informally assess any misconception or poor quality in a skill.
