As a unique twist--this resource,”Percentophobia” includes a “phobia” theme which includes word problems involving various scenarios dealing with a variety of phobic conditions. As an additional component, the following formats are provided to assist with flexibility when teaching:
1. FULL SIZE COLOR SLIDES FOR WHOLE GROUP PRESENTATION ON A WHITE BOARD OR SCREEN
2. PRINTABLE FULL SIZE TASK CARDS IN BLACK AND WHITE FOR COPIER PRINTING
3. PRINTABLE MINI-FORMAT TASK CARDS IN BLACK AND WHITE FOR ECONOMICAL PRINTING
**A TOTAL of 30 task card word problems aligned with CCSS 6.RP.3c.
10 Task Card word problems finding the unknown percent
10 Task Card word problems finding the unknown amount
10 Task Card word problems finding the unknown base
**A printable student answer document is provided to assist with student accountability. As you are well aware, when some students are working in less structured environments such as centers or small collaborative learning groups, they are often distracted from the task at hand. Student answer documents provide a visual piece to remind students they are accountable for number work at the end of the work period.
DOCUMENTATION/AUTHENTIC WORK SAMPLES
Student answer documents are also excellent for using as documentation as well as work samples of authentic pieces of student work when some type of substantiation is required for math portfolios, IEPs, AIPs, Parent-Teacher conferences, special education placement conferences, etc.
**Differentiation is addressed by the level of difficulty in word problem scenarios. Student answer documents are also convenient when making differentiated assignments- you can easily assign specific task cards by circling the desired workspaces of the problems a student is to complete.
**Answer Keys are provided in 2 formats:
1. as individual task cards -if student self-checking is preferred
2. OR in a traditional answer key that is teacher friendly when grading task card number work as graded assignments
These task cards are flexible resources and can be used in many ways such as:
*number work for math centers
*number work for small collaborative groups
*whiteboard work for whole class assignments
*whiteboard work during transitions
*meaningful engagement and practice for early finishers
*as assessment/benchmark check-ups
* as math journal entries
You can never have too many of these kinds of resources to reinforce skills- especially on days when regular classroom routines are disrupted by activities such as school picture day, assemblies, etc.
