Product Description
The 44 task cards in this collection require students to map out their thinking by modeling a solution to each problem and then explain their reasoning in writing. Each task is designed to help you implement the Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practice in your classroom on a daily basis.

The focus of the tasks in this collection is on measuring length using both customary measurement (inches, feet, yards) and metric measurement (centimeters and meters).

As students become masters of the routines outlined in this task card collection, their problem solving accuracy increases and their ability to incorporate academic vocabulary and detailed reasoning into their explanations improves. Each mathematical concept you teach will be more deeply solidified as a result.

In order to complete these tasks, students should be able to measure the length of an object using appropriate tools, and estimate lengths using inches, feet, centimeters, and meters. Students must also measure the length of an object twice using different units, compare & describe the two measurements, and solve word problems involving lengths.

***************************************************************************
Here is a closer look at each step in the task card problem solving process and justification for how each step will support you in implementing the Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practice:

Record the Question
The reasoning and analysis process begins as students are required to attend to precision when they record the question word-for-word on binder paper or one of the recording sheets provided.

Model and Solve
Students use abstract and quantitative models to work through the problem solving process. Those who are experts at mental math are trained to attend to precision when modeling their thinking.

Solution
Students routinely double-check their solution accurately answers the question.

Explain
Students justify their conclusions and communicate them clearly in written form, further reinforcing their reasoning skills.
