PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This product includes 20 Write to Explain Task Cards to help your students practice third grade multiplication problem solving concepts.

These task cards are designed to help you implement the Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practice in your classroom on a daily basis. When solving these tasks, students do not simply record an answer on a worksheet and move on. Instead, students are required to map out their thinking by modeling each problem and then explaining their reasoning in writing. As students become masters of this routine, 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.

***************************************************************************
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.

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 that their solution accurately answers the question.

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