Math Game Monday ~ Percents & Proportions Common Core Task Cards



Happy Monday!  It's back to school for me today after a wonderful week off for Thanksgiving!

Math Game Monday for this week is another idea that works more like a station than a true game, but my students seem to think anything that's not typical paper-and-pencil is just as fun as a game.

I'm right smack in the midst of teaching percents and proportions with real-world context.  Common Core cover so many different uses for percents and/or proportions in one little standard, MCC7.RP, that it might catch you by surprise when you actually break the standard apart and start to teach it!

Percents & Proportions ~ Common Core Real World Task Cards covers ALL those different uses.  Click on the image below to see this product in my TPT Store.




This product contains 24 task cards which focus on CCSS MCC7.RP.

They are all about using percents and proportions in the real-world!

Concepts addressed include:

Sales Tax
Commissions
Tips
Percent Increase
Percent Decrease
Markups
Amount of Discount
Discounted Sales Price
Percent Error

Several cards are multi-step and include 2 or more of the concepts listed above.

I've included a Student Answer Sheet as well as an Answer Key!

As always, I recommend printing these on card stock and laminating for longer, more durable use in the classroom.


Don't forget about the Cyber Monday plus Tuesday Sale going on over at TPT.  If you buy this product today or tomorrow, you'll save 20% from me and an additional 10% from TPT.  That's a total of 28% OFF!  Just use Code CMT12 when you check out for the extra 10% OFF!
