Decimal Word Problems Solve & Draw Task Cards are a no-prep way to make decimal review work or practice more engaging. These are also designed to provide practice of reading math directions and breaking down multi-step word problems. These are intended to be a challenge or review activity.
How Solve & Draw Task Cards Work:
Students read the word problem, determine the steps they need to take, and solve the decimal calculations. Then, there are two related math problems, often requiring critical thinking and making connections, that will prompt them to add specific objects to the drawing. To keep them guessing, each problem may have one correct drawing prompt, two, or none.
Drawing is no-prep because it can be done with a pencil. You may choose to allow colored pencils, crayons, or markers but they are not required. This works well as a homework option for families who may not have those supplies to offer.
Three drawings are included, each with 8 associated task cards (ninja from the correct drawing is on each numbered task card). Each task card contains three related math problems.
Task cards are included in both color and black-and-white. An answer sheet with workspace is provided and may be copied on to the back of the drawing or separately. You may also choose to print copies of the task cards in black-and-white, especially for students needing support, and allowing students to complete the work on the task cards.
Drawing prompts require a student to use multiple skills:
• Decimal calculations (all operations)
• Reading word problems carefully and determining the steps and calculations needed to solve
• Making math connections
• Independently using math vocabulary
• Reading directions accurately
Solve & Draw resources are inspired by a group of artistic students who love to create and detest practicing math skills in the same boring ways. I hope this resource can make math practice and review fun in your classroom or home, too!
