This set is perfect to practice multiplication and division story problems with too much (extra) information, as well as problems without enough information to solve. Critical thinking can easily be practiced with these Common Core aligned practice task cards! There are so many ways to use task cards in your classroom and they can be used year-to-year.
*This set of task cards requires students to SLOW down and really think about what the question is asking! I love using this set because I know that my students are just skimming the problems and just pulling out the numbers they see to solve!

• 42 Task Cards (35 on-level and 7 challenge)
• Some with too little information to solve
• Most with extra, unneeded information
• Answer Key

I like to print the cards on card stock or oak tag and then cut and laminate them. This helps with being able to use them year after year. I use these as a whole class “Scoot” type activity. I also love to pull a few to have students work on individually or in a small group. These are also great for math center time. Sometimes I also like to pull a handful for my fast finishers. The challenge cards are perfect to expose students to the next level.
