Word Problem Detective Task Cards: FREE
One big challenge students often have with math story problems is that
they do not read the problem carefully enough. These longer story
problems were designed to help students learn to read carefully and
pick out the relevant details.
Each of these 8 half-page cards features a story with a lot of
information and numbers. There are also four problems for each story.
Students must read carefully to successfully select the information
they need to solve each problem.
Cards 1-4 are the beginner cards. Many of the problems can be solved
mentally once the student has determined which information is relevant.
Cards 5-8 are advanced. The problems on these cards are all multi-step and may be fairly complicated.
Student answer sheet and and answer key is also included.
These cards are samples from my beginning and advanced Word Problem Detective task cards which can be found in my TpT store.
