Number Talks - Mental Division Task Cards

$4.99 or Free on Plus | 24 pages (PDF)|Grades: 5 - 6

Build number sense skills with this set of 24 task cards.

Use this set of task cards to easily implement number talks into your classroom.

Number talks are meant to be short, daily maths activities that allow students to have meaningful and highly engaging conversations about maths. Simply show students the front of the card, and ask the prompts on the back. These exchanges will lead to the development of more accurate, efficient, and flexible strategies for students.

This card set is a great teaching resource for helping students to perform division operations with one and two-digit divisors using mental strategies based on:

  • place value
  • partial quotients
  • properties of operations
  • divisibility rules
  • area models.

Print out the task cards front and back so that the prompts are displayed on the back of each card. The cards can also be put on a ring for added convenience.
