Classifying Triangles (Sides & Angles) Task Cards

Classifying Triangles by Sides & Angles for 4th-6th grade

I created these task cards to be used with my 5th graders for our Geometry unit. However any grade can use them for enrichment or review.  I use task cards quite frequently and my kids love them.

Usually, my students will use these cards to practice at their table groups while I work with small groups in the back of my classroom. However, you can also set these up as a Math Workshop station or as a Scavenger Hunt around the room or hallways.

The QR code ensures that my students are not practicing incorrectly. Each task card comes with a code that students can scan on iPads, phones or computers. The QR code immediately pulls up the answer. Students can check their work and figure out if they made a mistake or not. There is also an answer key included that students can use without using the QR codes.

This version contains 28 task cards designed for 4th -6th grade but can be used as a review or enrichment in different grades.

• Task Cards #1-8 Students classify triangles by their sides – includes a list of choices
• For Task Cards # 9-16 Students classify triangles by their angles – includes choices
• Finally, for Task Cards #17-28 Students classify triangles by both sides and angles (no choices)

The choices allow students to practice classifying them correctly with assistance before giving them the card that do not have each of the types of angles/sides listed.

The best part about the QR codes, is that if the students make a mistake, they can figure out where they went wrong and correct their mistakes. This provides instant feedback, even when the teacher is not right beside them.

The only prep and materials that are required are a printer, scissors and some lamination (optional). I also have a set of these in black and white that I have cut out and glued to colored paper since our printer at school is only black and white. I usually laminate everything so that I can reuse them year after year.

If you are ready to use them, please check out my store at teachers pay teachers or I also have them available through TES found here.

Place Value Whole Number and Decimal Task Cards- Standard, Word and Expanded Form

I created these task cards to be used with my 5th graders last week.

My students use these cards to practice at their table groups while I work with small groups in the back of my classroom. However, you can also set these up as a Math Workshop station or as a Scavenger Hunt around the room or hallways.

The QR reader ensures that my students are not practicing incorrectly. My students complete the work and then use the QR reader from my Ipad or the QR Reader on their Chromebooks to check their answers. The QR code links the students to the correct answer and appropriate work if work is required. .

The best part about the QR codes, is that if the students make a mistake, they can figure out where they went wrong and correct their mistakes. This provides instant feedback, even when the teacher is not right beside them.

• Place Value of a Number
• Value of a Number
• Expanded Form of a Number
• Standard Form of a Number
• Word Form of a Number

Of both Whole Numbers and Decimals to the Thousandths Place.

The only prep and materials that are required are a printer, scissors and some lamination (optional). I also have a set of these in black and white that I have cut out and glued to colored paper since our printer at school is only black and white. I usually laminate everything so that I can reuse them year after year.

If you are ready to use them, please check out my store. The free version has 4 cards while the full version has 28 cards. (You can get those for \$2.50 on my TPT store or on Amped Up Learning Use the code MATH10 to receive 10% off any purchases from our store on Amped Up Learning.

were created for my husband’s 3rd grade classroom.  These are great for when his students are working in small groups or in  individual stations around the room.

These task cards are designed to help students practice while he works with small groups in the back of the classroom.  Students can complete the work and then use the iPad or Chromebook to scan the QR codes.  The QR codes link the students to a picture with the answer.  If they make a mistake, they can try to figure out where they went wrong.  This provides instant feedback, even though the teacher is not right beside them.

Another good way to use these cards are to tape them around the room.  Students can then get up and walk around the room answering questions.

• Place value of a number
• Value of a number
• Expanded Form
• Standard Form
• A number and using place value to add or subtract to arrive at a new number.

The only prep and materials that are required are a printer, scissors and some lamination (optional).  I went ahead and  laminated them so that I can reuse these year after year.   If you would like to see them or use them  – click here to find them in my store.

Order of Operations…..  A procedure that my students need to memorize in order to be successful in algebra and higher secondary math.

These task cards are designed to help my students practice while I work with small groups in the back.  My students can complete the work and then use the iPad to scan the QR codes.  The QR codes link the students to a sheet with my work.  If they make a mistake, they have the answer and all the  work shown to compare and figure out where they went wrong to correct the mistake.  This provides instant feedback from me, even though I am not beside them.  It’s like cloning myself!!!

The only prep and materials that are required are a printer, scissors and some lamination (optional).  I went ahead and  laminated them so that I can reuse these year after year. These task cards have both regular problems and test prep problems.  If you would like to see them or use them  – click here to find them in my store.  I am super excited about using these again with my students next week!

Long Division…..  The thought makes some people cringe in horror or shiver with remembering all of those hours practicing over and over that same method.

In 5th grade, our job is to bridge that gap between concrete understanding in elementary school to the abstract understanding required in junior high.  Traditional algorithms are taught while also still allowing students to choose their method to solve real world problems.  One of the ways I like to practice, is by using task cards.

I have 84 minutes to teach math each day (which is super exciting coming from 45 before) and my students work in a math workshop setting.  Whole group usually lasts about 20 min while students use the rest of the time to rotate through stations.  Since I am teaching a small group in the back of the room, I need stations that are set up to run independently which is why I created these task cards.

These task cards are cut out and printed on card stock.  I then laminate them so I can use them for multiple classes and groups. The students use notebook paper to work out each problem and check their answers.  Students use an iPad to quickly scan the QR code, and it takes them to a photo image which contains the problem worked out on white boards along with the correct answer.  They can then check their answer and if they did something wrong, they can see exactly where they messed up.

I am in the process of designing additional cards to be used for different areas including multiplication and decimals.

This is an example of one of my long division cards. 1/2 of the cards have no remainders, while the other 1/2 of the cards have remainders in which the students have to figure out how to interpret based on the real world scenario that is provided.  Currently, I have cards with 1 and 2 digit divisors, decimal division, multiplication and expressions

If you would like to check out these task cards, I have a free sample version (contains 8 cards) on my teachers pay teachers website – click here  .

The full version of the 1 digit divisor (containing 24 cards) is also on my site that is listed here . and the full version of the 2 digit divisor (containing 24 cards) is listed here.  I would love to hear what you think if you try these out in your classroom or home school.  They are designed for 4th/5th grade but can be used at other grades to enrich or for remediation.

Full version with 24 task cards!

Task card printed in black and white, laminated on color paper.

If color copies are an issue (we don’t have a color copier at our school,)  then you can print the cards out and glue them onto colored paper.  Not nearly as pretty as colored but are effective none the less.
