These 43 math task cards address multiplying by one digit numbers. They are correlated to Chapter 2, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Go Math! Florida Textbook, Grade 4
Suggested Activities for Use of Task Cards:
This set of math task cards can be used for learning stations, scoot, games, or for a scavenger hunt.
As a scavenger hunt, you only use one set of cards at a time. You place the cards around the room and working with a partner (or by themselves) students roam around the room answering the questions.
They don't need to be done in order, just make sure the kids number the problems correctly on a sheet of paper and record answers in the appropriate places. Most of the time my kids are strategically partnered, but sometimes I let them choose their own partners.
To differentiate, some problems may be labeled H.O.T. (stands for higher ordered thinking). Also, if I have them use one recording sheet, I tell them to use two different colored pencils. This increases individual accountability.
The set has Common Core aligned math task cards that vary in complexity and skill.
Common Core Standards:
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.4.OA.A.1 Interpret a multiplication equation as a comparison, e.g., interpret 35 = 5 x 7 as a statement that 35 is 5 times as many as 7 and 7 times as many as 5. Represent verbal statements of multiplicative comparisons as multiplication equations.
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.4.OA.A.2 Multiply or divide to solve word problems involving multiplicative comparison, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem, distinguishing multiplicative comparison from additive comparison.
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.4.NBT.B.5 Multiply a whole number of up to four digits by a one digit whole number, and multiply two-digit numbers, using strategies based on place value and the properties of operations. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.4.OA.A.3 Solve multi-step word problems posed with whole numbers and having whole-number answers using the four operations, including problems in which remainders must be interpreted. Represent these problems using equations with a letter standing for the unknown quantity. Assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies including rounding.
The standards above are Grade 4 Common Core. However, these standards can be used to challenge third graders or for remediation for fifth grade students.
