Each task card gives a polynomial inequality with the instructions to solve and state the answer in interval notation. Students are not required to draw a number line or graph to solve the problems, but there is plenty of room on the answer sheet for them to do so. I usually begin by requiring the students to draw the number line, but then let the students gradually decide for themselves if they need to continue doing so.
There are 20 task cards in this set. One version is given without QR codes and another version is given with QR codes. You can choose which version to use. Make sure these problems are appropriate for your students. Download the preview for problem examples.
Students could be placed in partners and solve the problems together for cooperative learning. An answer key and a student answer sheet are included.
Task Card Ideas:
- Stations – Place 2-3 cards at each station and have students move in partners or groups from station to station.
- Scoot Game – Place one numbered card on each student desk. It’s helpful if the desks are moved into a circle. Have students start at their own desk, solving the problem on the card and recording their answer on the answer sheet. Students move to the next desk when the teacher says, “Scoot!”. When everyone has gone through all of the problems, go over the solutions as a class.
- Marker Board Review – Put task cards under a projector and have students work the problem on their marker board.
- Daily Warm-Ups – 1-2 task cards could be used per day as a warm-up.
