Product Description
The 440 task cards in this collection require students to map out their thinking by modeling a solution to each problem and then explain their reasoning in writing. Each task is designed to help you implement the Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practice in your classroom on a daily basis.

As students become masters of the routines outlined in this task card collection, their problem solving accuracy increases and their ability to incorporate academic vocabulary and detailed reasoning into their explanations improves. Each mathematical concept you teach will be more deeply solidified as a result.

Here is a closer look at each step in the task card problem solving process and justification for how each step will support you in implementing the Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practice:

Record the Question
The reasoning and analysis process begins. Students are required to attend to precision as they record the math question word-for-word and highlight the most important key words, numbers and ideas.

Model and Solve
Students use abstract and quantitative models to work through the problem solving process. Those who are experts at mental math are trained to attend to precision when modeling their thinking.

Students record their solution in a complete sentence and routinely double-check that their solution accurately answers the question.

Students justify their conclusions and communicate them clearly in written form, further reinforcing their reasoning skills.
