Students develop background knowledge for future work with probability and combinations. This task invites students to use higher order thinking skills to develop systems and notice patterns.
*Number pattern: Given 3 numbers, students are challenged to identify and continue patterns. These 24 tasks are excellent preparation for multiplication and division.
*Composing Shapes: These tasks invite student collaboration and critical thinking. With teacher guidance, these tasks can be used to help students synthesize their learning. There’s lots of variety in these 12 cards including beginning fractions and geometry.
