The students are asked to find a remaining balance on a gift card after some items have been purchased. Students can use a variety of math skills to solve these 10 word problems. The task cards can be used with small groups, at centers, or students can use them individually. The display cards are great for posting on the board as a problem of the day or for use by a teacher or assistant working with a small group of students. The worksheet provided can be used instead of the cards or used at a later time as review.
