These 28 task cards are the perfect mixture of both models and word problems that address multiplying whole numbers and fractions. There are number lines, shape models, and area models along with word problems. They are scaffolded for the students to start out shading the models, then interpret the models, then create their own models and word problems.
•Cards 1-12 show four different models and require students to shade them in or complete them and then write an equation to match.
•Cards 13-20 have completed models and the students need to figure out the numbers in the equation as well as the answer.
•Cards 21-24 give an expression and require students to create their own word problem to represent it.
•Cards 25-28 give an equation and require students to create their own model to represent it (number line, area model, shapes, etc.)
Answer keys are provided for student self-check or teacher quick check. Note: Answer key only is for cards 1-20 because the answers will vary for 21-28 since students are creating their own word problems and models.
This document can be used for whole group lessons, small group centers, SCOOT game, intervention, homework or even assessment. I use these for small group lessons and homework with my fifth grade special education students. They are also great for spiral review throughout the year.
Recording sheet was created so students can shade and create models on that instead of the actual card. This makes it easier for the teacher to “assess” student understanding of the models.
This document is aligned to Texas 5.3I (supporting standard – multiplying fractions and whole numbers) and Common Core Standard 5.NF.B.4a
