Mental math is a great way for kids to stretch their brains by solving math problems without pencils, paper, or calculators. Here are 104 engaging task cards for plenty of mental math practice!

There are a few ways to use these cards:

-Teacher Led:

The teacher or a student leader reads a card out loud, line by line, giving time for students to mentally calculate each new step. Students then show their answers either with their fingers or by writing on individual white boards or tablets. This makes it easy for the teacher to quickly assess student answers. Alternatively, students could use one of the provided student answer sheets and the class could correct together, or if being used as an assessment, turn in for grading.

- In Pairs:

Students take turns reading cards to each other. If you want students to record their answers, you could use one answer sheet and have one student do the odds and the other do the evens.

- Individually:

Students work with each card on their own, recording answers on one of the provided answer sheets.

You could also use for Scoot, Quiz, Quiz Trade, or other games.

Cards are included for printing in color or on colored paper using the black line version.
