PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Included in this set are 30 task cards that have students evaluate or translate phrases into algebraic expressions, a student answer sheet, and an answer key. These cards are all short answer questions. Cards 1-15 give students an expression and ask them to evaluate it using values given for each variable. Cards 1a-15a give students a phrase and ask them to translate it into an algebraic expression. I have found that the easiest way to use the cards are to cut out the set and laminate them. That way they last for awhile!

There are multiple ways I use task cards in my classroom. Sometimes I have students pair up, sometimes I have students work alone, others we play a game I call “Speed Math”. When students work in pairs, I give each student a task card. Students then work together to solve each of the problems. After a certain amount of time (2-3minutes) each group passes their cards to the next group. When I have students work on task cards by themselves, I pass out the task cards, then set a timer so that every 2minutes students pass their cards. These cards can also be used to play “Speed Math”. Directions for this game are at the end of the packet!

I have included a colored version of the cards and a black and white version. Answer sheets are the same for each set. The two versions (with and without QR codes) are in a zipped folder for easy access.

There are many free apps available for download that will read QR codes. Most smart phones, along with many Ipods, and Ipads have apps that can be downloaded to read the codes!
