Ratio and proportion task cards have been the most invaluable resource used in my GED classroom.
I credit this to 2 reasons:
1. The cards are a load of fun for the adults.
2. When students have full comprehension of the basics behind setting up ratio and proportion problems, then they can solve any algebraic problem that comes their way.
Using ratio and proportion as useful tools for solving mathematical word problems will make your job as a GED math teacher much easier. What better way to review, practice or emphasize the necessary skills than with a fun activity.
These colorful task cards with easy 2-sided printing (question on front-answer on back) have matching pictures on question and answer card. If you do not want 2-sided printing, you will easily find the matching answer. Please print on heavy paper or card stock and laminate. (That is what I did and they have lasted for years)
My students have gained tremendously from this activity. You can match cards to student abilities with the varying difficulty levels of cards.
There are 66 cards in all (2 cards on each page) and topics are aligned to the College and Career Readiness Standards.
