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 Standard 3.6A: The student is expected to classify and sort two- and three-dimensional figures, including cones, cylinders, spheres, triangular and rectangular prisms, and cubes, based on attributes using formal geometric language.
I can classify all kinds of 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional shapes by their unique properties and call them by their proper names.
TEKS Standard 3.6B: The student is expected to use attributes to recognize rhombuses, parallelograms, trapezoids, rectangles, and squares as examples of quadrilaterals and draw examples of quadrilaterals that do not belong to any of these subcategories.
I can recognize different types of quadrilaterals like; rhombuses, parallelograms, trapezoids, rectangles, and squares. I can also tell when a shape is a quadrilateral, but doesn't have properties of any of the above.
TEKS Standard 3.6C: The student is expected to determine the area of rectangles with whole number side lengths in problems using multiplication related to the number of rows times the number of unit squares in each row.
I can find out the amount of square units that are inside a rectangle (the area) by counting how many square units long it is and how many square units wide it is, and finally multiplying the units together to get the area.
TEKS Standard 3.6D: The student is expected to decompose composite figures formed by rectangles into non-overlapping rectangles to determine the area of the original figure using the additive property of area.
I can find the area of a rectangle by multiplying its length times its width, and if I put two rectangles together side by side I can use that same principle to find the area of the more complex polygon that is formed.
TEKS Standard 3.6E: The student is expected to decompose two congruent two-dimensional figures into parts with equal areas and express the area of each part as a unit fraction of the whole and recognize that equal shares of identical wholes need not have the same shape.
I can break down congruent figures into smaller parts that are all an equal share of the larger whole in more than one way.
