This quick, leveled activity will give your students a chance to practice finding percent of a number using mental math. Each student starts with a set of 9 problems and a list of numbers 0-9. They must figure out which number is the “Odd Man Out” by working through the problems, and crossing out numbers as they use them. All of the problems should have answers from 0-9, and one number doesn’t get used….the “Odd Man Out”. This resource contains 2 sets of Odd Man Out percent activity cards. Each set of cards has three different levels to help you differentiate for your class, but all three levels have the same Odd Man Out, so you can use it at the same time in your class. You are getting a total of 6 different “Odd Man Out” boards with this resource. These percent of a number questions were designed to help students develop number sense, so students don’t even need calculators for this activity.
There are lots of different ways you could use this resource. It would make a great bell ringer to review, or a quick formative assessment after a percent of a number lesson. It’s very quick to check, since all you’ll have to do is see if students found the right “Odd Man Out”! There is a full-size version of each “Odd Man Out” board that could be laminated, and you could let students use dry erase markers. Or there is a small version with all three levels on one page if you’re trying to save paper. Also, you could just have your students write down the numbers 0-9 on a piece of notebook paper, and you could reveal the problems one by one...then you don’t have to make any copies! Finally, I have provided a copy of just the number strips, in case you want to make this a listening activity where you read the problems aloud, and students mark off the answers as you go.
