This set was designed to meet the rigor of the common core standards. Each task card set has 24 cards that ask students to practice rounding AND to apply rounding to real world situations. Each card has an extended response question so that students have to not only round, but explain their answers in a variety of ways. None of the cards are multiple choice. An answer key is included with possible student responses. These are a great way to differentiate!
Like the new PARCC assessments, these cards ask students to identify and explain flawed reasoning and answer questions that have more than one correct answer. These task cards will be great practice to get your students thinking, and writing, about rounding in a variety of contexts.
