As special education teachers, working across grade levels and ability levels is nothing new, as we differentiate on a daily basis. That’s why the worksheets target skills sequentially. It is also why we present content in a variety of formats, to assist with student interest, motivation, and retention. Depending on student ability, worksheets are appropriate for students in grades 3 - 6. For general education teachers, this resource would be used to introduce the topic and work through all or some of the worksheets provided as part of your instruction on Order of Operations.

The task cards included are a great alternative to worksheets! They can be used in a variety of ways. Students can use them individually, in pairs, small groups, or as a whole group activity. Another option is to simply print out the Task Cards Set and the Student Recording Sheet in grayscale, and provide them to students as a "packet" to be worked on as a "When You're Finished" project.

Simply print out the cards, cut, and laminate. I mount each card on to cardstock before laminating, to make them extra sturdy. Store them either in a basket, plastic baggie, envelope, or hole punch each card and store on a binder ring for easy access. If I haven’t yet made my permanent, sturdy colored task cards, I will just print the set out in grayscale and have students work with them as a paper packet. This comes in especially handy if you don’t have a color printer, too. Saves lots of ink!
