Differentiation - The Power of Task Cards
The first 10 questions will introduce the concept that will build your students confidence, while the 2nd and 3rd group of ten questions will gradually increase the challenge* for your students. You can decide which students receive which questions based on their level of readiness, or simply assign them all to each student.
Methodology - How We Designed the Problems
Each question is aligned to the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) state standards, and are specifically designed to meet documented student expectations for that standard. The questions are patterned on previously released State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) Math Tests. The questions can be used for guided practice and independent practice.
Although that all sounds like boring academic-speak, these task cards are anything but boring! Unique, high-quality illustrations have been added for a little something extra in each question and word problem. Many are directly related to the word problem, while others are there to lighten up the atmosphere.
*Careful attention has been put into each question so they won't be so challenging as to discourage your students, while still being rigorous enough to prepare your students for testing and assessment.
Just because our price is low doesn't mean our product isn't of the highest quality! We wanted to price these sets affordably, making sure to keep your budget in mind. I'm highly confident that once you try a NUMBEROCK task card set, we'll see you again!

Included in this task card set are the following TEKS Standards:
TEKS Supporting Standard 3.3A: The student is expected to represent fractions greater than zero and less than or equal to one with denominators of 2, 3, 4, 6, and 8 using concrete objects and pictorial models, including strip diagrams and number lines.
I can round numbers to the nearest 10th, 100th, 1000th, and 10,000th, and plot the numbers on a number line to show my work.
TEKS Supporting Standard 3.3B: The student is expected to determine the corresponding fraction greater than zero and less than or equal to one with denominators of 2, 3, 4, 6, and 8 given a specified point on a number line.
I can place fractions on a number line by understanding how each segment equals one piece of the whole.
TEKS Supporting Standard 3.3C: The student is expected to explain that the unit fraction 1/b represents the quantity formed by one part of a whole that has been partitioned into b equal parts where b is a non-zero whole number.
I understand that fractions are made up of equal parts that together form a whole. I can represent them in written form and through pictures, too!
TEKS Supporting Standard 3.3D: The student is expected to compose and decompose a fraction a/b with a numerator greater than zero and less than or equal to b as a sum of parts 1/b.
I can sum up and break apart fractions when 1 is numerator (number in the top position).
TEKS Supporting Standard 3.3E: The student is expected to solve problems involving partitioning an object or a set of objects among two or more recipients using pictorial representations of fractions with denominators of 2, 3, 4, 6, and 8.
I can share with my friends using fractions and help them understand by drawing pictures to represent how I divided them.
TEKS Readiness Standard 3.3F: The student is expected to represent equivalent fractions with denominators of 2, 3, 4, 6, and 8 using a variety of objects and pictorial models, including number lines.
I can understand that certain fractions - like one-half or two-fourths - may look different, but actually have equal values.
TEKS Supporting Standard 3.3G: The student is expected to explain that two fractions are equivalent if and only if they are both represented by the same point on the number line or represent the same portion of a same size whole for an area model.
I can explain why certain fractions are equal to each other by representing them on things like number lines and fractions pies.
TEKS Readiness Standard 3.3H: The student is expected to compare two fractions having the same numerator or denominator in problems by reasoning about their sizes and justifying the conclusion using symbols, words, objects, and pictorial models.
I can compare the sizes of fractions when they have the same top number or bottom number (numerator and denominator).
