Making Cents of Fractions! An Introduction.
Every student intuitively understands that money is valuable and they learn quickly how to count change. Fractions however are not as easily learned. Combining both money and fractions is sure to help your students on their way to learning fractions. These task cards help to solidify the idea of how fractions work in the real world.
You will need to get a free downloadable QR code reader for your smart phone or ipad.
Each QR code includes the answer to the problem and an encouraging statement. For example in answer to the question “What fraction of a dollar is 10 pennies?”, the QR code reads “If you answered 10/100 or 1/10 ... Bingo!”
You can use these as a small group activity or use them as a center activity. You can also use them with the entire class and read (or display) one card at a time. The students can answer the questions on their answer sheet (provided in the packet). You can place the QR answer cards around the room for your students to check answers or you can scan them and let the students see the answer on your phone or ipad. There is also an answer sheet if you choose not to use the QR codes.
These cards are designed to look great in both color and black and white. After printing the cards cut along the guidelines provided. You can print on regular paper or card stock. You could also punch holes and string with ribbon, keep in a baggie or use a binder clip to keep them together. If you want to save paper, you could change your printer settings to print 2 pages on each page of paper. You’ll come out with smaller cards and they are still easily readable.
