This activity does not necessarily focus on finding the one right answer, rather it asks students to generate “questions” that have a targeted answer. A different way of thinking for some students. This activity allows for multiple entry points of learning so students at different readiness levels can complete the task differently. As a result, students can see multiple representations of fractions.
There are two different sets of task cards. One set of task cards has fractions of a region, set, or unit of measure. The other set of task cards simply has fractions on them. Denominators include 2, 3, 4, 6, and 8. Depending on the readiness levels of students, different cards and different denominators can be used.
Use this activity as a bell ringer, anchor activity, math center activity, review, enrichment, or formative assessment. Make this activity fit the academic needs of your students.
Use these cards to address CCSS, questioning, and writing in math!
