Put your students to work solving the Cupcake Shoppe's Multiplying and Dividing Fractions word problem task cards! My task card sets of real-world word problems use fun themes that you can use year-round in whole-group lessons, math stations, centers, and rotations for guided math activities.
I have found that many students struggle with applying the computations they know when faced with word problems. This really affects them when they face a test that contains almost all word problems. Therefore, I created these Word Problems to challenge students while they learn how to multiply and divide with fractions. I like to use these cards instead of our textbook by placing cards all around the room and having students move to the cards independently to complete the work. Students check in with me throughout the process to get answers checked and to ask questions. Of course, you can also use these in centers.
This set contains:
-32 multiplying and dividing fractions task cards
-Cupcake Shoppe Payroll problems (multiplying whole number/decimal)
-4 Cupcake Shoppe Boxed Order Questions
-student answer/recording sheet
