Mastering Multiplication with QR Code Task Cards

We're to the point in the year where my kids are rusty, but they still need to test their limits for a challenge.  With that thought in mind, I put together a few QR Codes activities for my kids.
So, here's my contribution to:

The first one is for the rusty kids.  In doing our Math 4 Today recently, I was seeing some regrouping errors and even some rounding problems.  So, the first set I made was this one!

Usually when I do task cards as a whole group activity, we play Scoot.  This time I decided to set up stations to rotate.  This set has 24 cards with 8 cards for each task that include:
  1. Rounding
  2. Addition w/ Regrouping
  3. Subtraction w/ Regrouping

Using a different answer document, the kids were allowed to choose a set to practice. Kids numbered their sheet inside the circles.  In this set, once you were finished with your 8 cards, the final card had a QR code to check the answers for the set worked on.  That really helped the kids share my cell phone pretty easily.  If more than one child wanted to work on the same set, it was fine since they could do the 8 cards in any order.  If you'd like to use this answer document with your own task cards, grab this quick download by clicking HERE.

I loved seeing how diligently they worked!  If there were errors, they would see me and we'd work it out together.  I have a better handle with these last days leading up to testing.

The set I put together for enrichment really tests the strategies for my kids.  These are correlated for 4th grade CC, but within this differentiated set, there was a challenge to be found for everyone in my class near the end of the year. 

I created this 24 cards set to have sets of 8 cards that included:
  1. 2-digit by one digit multiplication
  2. 3-digit by one digit multiplication
  3. 2-digit by 2-digit multiplication

Some of my kids are using an area model to multiply, some are using the traditional method.  Either way, these task cards have a QR code on each one.  I expected my kids to complete fewer problems during their rotation, so again, sharing wasn't an issue when checking their work with my Ipad and Iphone.  
Again, the shorter answer document made it easier to focus on one skill at a time.

In all, it was a great way to use my task cards in a new way.  They loved getting up and moving around in rotations!

Have a great Monday y'all!.

  1. One of my goals for next year is to incorporate QR codes more. Thanks for the inspiration to dig in!
