This set of task cards has been organized in a way that allows for seamless differentiation. Cards #1-10 are the least difficult in each set and can be given to any students who might be struggling to gain confidence. Cards #11-20 are just slightly more challenging, while the last 10 questions require a bit more critical thinking being primarily long-form word problems.

*Careful attention has been put into each question so they won't be so challenging as to discourage your students, while still being rigorous enough to prepare your students for testing and assessment.

Most of the illustrations on our task cards come directly from our musical math animations that can be seen on YouTube or, alternatively, completely ad-free on our website, numberock.com.
We highly recommend supplementing these task cards with our math videos. Doing so will provide an unprecedented level of engagement as your students remember the music, which stimulates their memory, and then see the characters they have been watching on their printables and activities. We’ve also added a smattering of (wholesome) humor into the wording of the questions. All that being said, I’m highly confident that the engagement levels in your classroom are going to surpass even your highest expectations.

Other 5th Grade TEKS task card sets of comparable quality are selling for \$5.00 and up. WIth this set, you don't have to choose between quality and price. These sets were priced keeping your budget firmly in mind.

Methodology - How We Designed the Problems

Each question is aligned to the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) state standards, and are specifically designed to meet documented student expectations for that standard. The questions are patterned on previously released State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) Math Tests. The questions can be used for guided practice and independent practice.
