Ratio and proportion task cards have been the most invaluable resource used in my classroom. I use this product in a pinch and to save on my color ink (color version is here: Ratio-Proportion Task Cards
I credit this to 2 reasons:
1. The cards are a load of fun for the kids.
2. When students have full comprehension of the basics behind setting up ratio and proportion problems, then they can solve any algebraic problem that comes their way.
Using ratio and proportion as useful tools for solving mathematical word problems will make your job as a math teacher much easier. What better way to review, practice or emphasize the necessary skills than with a fun task card activity.
These colorful task cards with easy 2-sided printing (question on front-answer on back) have matching pictures on question and answer card. If you do not want 2-sided printing, you will easily find the matching answer. Please print on heavy paper or card stock and laminate. (That is what I did and they have lasted for years)
My students have gained tremendously from this activity. You can match cards to student abilities with the varying difficulty levels of cards.
There are 66 cards in all (2 cards on each page) and topics are aligned to the Common Core, PA standards (6th and 7th) and also CMP3 math curriculum.
