Percent Problems: Giant Task Cards/Stations by Miss Middle School Teacher
This is a great interactive activity for middle school students that keeps them moving! Students work to solve percent problems in this activity. The following learning targets are covered through these task cards:
Students will be able to:
Convert percents to fractions
Convert fractions to percents
Convert percents to decimals
Convert decimals to percents
Find the percent of a number
Use proportions or the percent equation to solve problems
Apply knowledge of these concepts through story problems
and application questions.
I post the 26 task cards around the classroom and send 1-2 students to each sign. I then give students 1:30-2:00 to solve the problem on the task card. They record their answer on the "Percent Problems Challenge!" recording page. Students then move on to the next task card in the classroom. This set could also be used for individual learning centers and more!
This is a great way to reinforce math concepts, real-world application, and keep kids engaged!
Included: 26 percent problem task cards, a student answer recording sheet, and teacher key.
