(2 on a page) colour and Blackline ♦ Simplifying decimal number ratios (math LIB) 10 blackline Task Cards on a single page for students to glue in their notebooks as reference. MATH LIB ACTIVITY: My students really enjoyed this activity – I’m sure your students will too! I cut out and laminated the ten task cards. I then tacked them to the wall with Blu-Tac (this way cards don’t get lost if they were left on students’ desks – it also gets students up and moving), Students then write the ratio to solve on their recording sheet, simplify it and look for their answer from the list of options. They write the word against the selected option in the ‘fill in the blanks’ section. The end result is a spooky message. You will find that this is a far more interesting way of answering a multiple-choice question and checking students’ answers. The cards target differentiation. I am confident your students will have sound mathematical knowledge and understanding of simplifying decimal-number ratios after completion of this unit. All the best for the academic year!
