Number Talks - Ratio and Rate Task Cards

Teach Starter Publishing
PDF | 16 pages | Grades: 5 - 7

Build number sense skills with this set of 32 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 understand the concept of ratios and rates using:

  • pictorial models
  • strip or tape diagrams
  • double number lines
  • ratio tables.

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.
