Pandora's Party Palace Math Activity - Middle Years Version

16 mathematics problem solving task cards involving money in a real-world context.

Use this math activity with students to practice solving real-world problems involving money.

Print out a class set on cardstock to use as a math center activity or focus on one problem at a time in a guided math group or as a whole class. Alternatively, give students a copy of a task card to glue into their journals to solve independently. Provide students with a set of answer cards to check their work in the end.

Use the blank template to create your own questions and math problems based on the catalog for your class to solve.
