This set of task cards works great with individuals, partners, small groups, or even centers. Several resources are provided to allow you to use this activity to best suit your classroom! An exciting feature is the inclusion of QR codes encoded with the answers so students can check their own work.
You will find 20 cards at different Depth of Knowledge levels, appropriate for students at all levels. Students will estimate irrational expressions. They will need to estimate square roots of non-perfect square roots, approximate pi, and convert rational numbers into decimal approximations. There are 12 cards that are entirely skill based and 8 cards with word problems.
The QR codes are an exciting addition! Do you find yourself overwhelmed when all your students want you to check their answers while you are trying to help a struggling student? If you are in a technology-enabled classroom, students can use any device with a QR reader to scan the code and immediately access the answers. You do not need to have Internet access for the codes to work. (There is also a version of the cards without codes provided so they are not distracting if you don't have technology access.)
Differentiation is so important in the classroom, but sometimes it is difficult to plan for and implement. This resource was designed to make it easy for you to differentiate effectively. You can create different sets of cards to meet your students' needs. If you have struggling learners, it may be appropriate to give them just a few cards at a time with similar problems. If you have accelerated students, you may want to skip the skills problems and give them all the problem-solving cards. Once you print the cards, it is very easy to just pull the pages you want and copy them for different groups.
