Included in this set are 30 task cards on rounding decimals, a recording sheet, and an answer key. Cards 1-15 ask students to round to a certain spot (I.E. units, hundreds, thousandths, etc). Cards 1a-15a give students a value and asks them to determine which of 4 choices rounds the value incorrectly. For example you may have 1.8392, then be given choices: A. 1.84 B. 1.8 C. 1 D. 1.839
Choice C would be wrong because been rounding to the nearest unit, you would round this number up to 2.
There are multiple ways I use task cards in my classroom. Sometimes I have students pair up, sometimes I have students work alone. For this activity I would suggest having students sit in rows of 2. Each group should start out with a task card. After answering the question on the task card (should take 1-2 minutes) each group should stand up and scoot down to the next card. Cards should stay in their original spot the entire time! If you would prefer not to have your students move, you can have them pass the task cards, but personally I have found students get more excited about an activity when they are able to move around (even if they are just moving down 1 seat!). Another way to play would be to play a game I call Speed Math. Directions can be found as a free product in my store!
There are 2 versions of this set. One version has a polka dot border, one has just a basic black border which will help you save ink (if you need too!)
