Help your students to master their multiplication and division facts, as well as improve their problem solving strategies using these word problem task cards.
These cards were created to address the third grade common core standard:
3.OA.A.3 - Use multiplication and division within 100 to solve word problems in situations involving equal groups, arrays, and measurement quantities, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
Although these cards were created to address the third grade standard, they could easily be used with second grade students needing enrichment or fourth grade students needing remediation.
This resource contains three sets of 20 task cards for a total of 60 word problems. The first set, which is red, focuses only on multiplication. The second set, which is black focuses only on division and the last set, which is orange contains a combination of both multiplication and division problems! You are basically getting 3 sets of task cards in one resource!
Each task card is also offered in 3 sizes!
The full page format is perfect for displaying on a math meeting board or problem of the day board. The quarter page format is perfect for printing and putting in a math center or using with a small group of students. These cards are numbered and I have included an answer key. The smallest format (in black and white) is perfect for printing, cutting, and pasting in student math journals.
