PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

As teachers we need to focus on creating deep, independent thinkers. In order to meet the demands and rigor of the core standards, I created math tasks for my students to complete that meet these criteria.

This set contains detailed directions and pictures to help you utilize my math task sets in your classroom. It shows how I use these weekly in my classroom.

Use Math Tasks to Facilitate Deeper Understanding
The math tasks in this product differ from conventional math tasks. This approach has been proven to facilitate deeper student understanding and differentiation in the classroom.

How they work: Information is missing from each task to teach your students how to apply the standard’s concepts in real-world settings. For example, a question might ask how many legs the students saw while on a field trip to the zoo. The students would then have to reasonably estimate how many animals they saw, how many legs on each animal, and how many legs they saw in total. Your students might all get a different answer but as long as they do the math correctly, the final answers can be different.

Students can work individually, in small groups, or in partnerships to complete the math tasks given. They will use skills such as rounding, estimating, multiplying, dividing, adding, subtracting, guess and check, drawing pictures, using equations etc. to solve these problems. They can then share their work with the class and explain their thinking.

Don't Have a Colored Printer?
All Create-abilities resources are designed with ease-of-use in mind. Don’t have a color printer? No problem. Pages that do not render well in black-and-white have black-and-white copies included. Be classroom-ready with a quick print.
