This product was designed to meet Common Core Standard 3.OA.3 for third grade. The focus is on multiplying and dividing whole numbers. Students will use a variety of strategies to solve the word problems (arrays, equal groups, partitioning, and repeated addition).
There are 24 task cards included in this download. These can be printed on card stock and laminated. One option for use is to have cards placed in a math station. An alternative is to place the cards around the room and have students rotate and solve. I have used these cards for independent work and partner work by having students write the answers in their math journals. These also work well for early finishers.
An answer key is included for your convenience.
