Build fractional reasoning 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, math activities that allow students to have meaningful and highly engaging conversations about math. 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 designed to help students with adding and subtracting fractions with unequal denominators. It takes them through the process starting with visual models and ending with the standard algorithm. Along the way students are asked to solve the problem using fraction blocks, number lines, strip diagrams, and set 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.
