The Differentiation Advantage
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.
*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.
Included in this task card set are the following TEKS Standards:
TEKS Standard 5.3A:
The student is expected to estimate to determine solutions to mathematical and real‐world problems involving addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division
I can use my understanding of rounding and estimation to help myself quickly solve math problems I run into in the real-world."
TEKS Standard 5.3B:
The student is expected to multiply with fluency a three‐digit number by a two‐digit number using the standard algorithm.
I can find the product of a three-digit number and a two-digit number the good ol’ fashioned way."
TEKS Standard 5.3C:
The student is expected to solve with proficiency for quotients of up to a four‐digit dividend by a two‐digit divisor using strategies and the standard algorithm.
I can use the standard algorithm to find quotients when dividing numbers up to four-digits long by numbers up to two-digits long."
TEKS Standard 5.3D:
The student is expected to represent multiplication of decimals with products to the hundredths using objects and pictorial models, including area models.
I can find the product of two decimals with the help of objects and pictorial models."
TEKS Standard 5.3E:
The student is expected to solve for products of decimals to the hundredths, including situations involving money, using strategies based on place‐value understandings, properties of operations, and the relationship to the multiplication of whole numbers.
I can multiply decimals because I have a strong mathematical base which includes understanding place value and the relationship between multiplication and division."
TEKS Standard 5.3F:
The student is expected to ) represent quotients of decimals to the hundredths, up to four‐digit dividends and two‐digit whole number divisors, using objects and pictorial models, including area models.
I can find the quotient of two decimals with the help of objects and pictorial models."
TEKS Standard 5.3G:
The student is expected to solve for quotients of decimals to the hundredths, up to four‐digit dividends and two‐digit whole number divisors, using strategies and algorithms, including the standard algorithm.
I can divide decimals with quotients up to the hundredths place by dividing 4-digit dividends and two-digit divisors."
TEKS Standard 5.3H:
The student is expected to represent and solve addition and subtraction of fractions with unequal denominators referring to the same whole using objects and pictorial models and properties of operations.
I can add and subtract fractions with different denominators using different items and pictures."
TEKS Standard 5.3I:
The student is expected to represent and solve multiplication of a whole number and a fraction that refers to the same whole using objects and pictorial models, including area models.
I can multiply a fraction by a whole number and represent what I’m doing by using objects or the area model of multiplication."
TEKS Standard 5.3J:
The student is expected to represent division of a unit fraction by a whole number and the division of a whole number by a unit fraction such as 1/3 ÷ 7 and 7 ÷ 1/3 using objects and pictorial models, including area models
I can use objects and pictorial models to divide a unit fraction by a whole number, or to divide a whole number by a unit fraction."
TEKS Standard 5.3K:
The student is expected to add and subtract positive rational numbers fluently.
I can add and subtract rational numbers (positive whole numbers, decimals which don’t go on forever, and/or fractions)."
TEKS Standard 5.3L:
The student is expected to divide whole numbers by unit fractions and unit fractions by whole numbers.
I can divide a whole number by a fraction where the numerator is 1. I can also divide a fraction where the numerator is 1 by a whole number."
