Set of 10 word problems for collaborative work in 5th/6th class focussing on the areas of money, fractions, decimals and percentages.
Maths Task Cards – Money/Decimals/Fractions and Percentages
Over the Christmas holidays, I decided to make a new resource for my class for the first week back. This will be a chance for them to revise concepts such as decimals, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, percentages and fractions and money.
I looked at some of the items on sale in different shops (I tried to pick items that the children would have an interest in or items that their parents might have bought during the sales) and devised questions around the item for the children to answer. I find my class respond so well to these types of Maths lessons and are interested and engaged.
The children can work with a partner to solve these problems. The problems can be displayed on the board and the children can complete them together. This allows for conversations, sharing of methods/strategies used and discussion about the most effective way. As a class we can then discuss the answers and the strategies used.
Answer sheet included.
