3rd Grade - Math Ready© Data Analysis/Financial Literacy Bundle

3rd Grade - Math Ready© Data Analysis/Financial Literacy Bundle


Customers who used our 3rd grade STAAR WARS Math Task Cards loved them, and many teachers emailed us asking us for more. So we listened! But instead of creating more STAAR review sets, we thought it would be even better to have task card sets that could be used WHILE you’re teaching, instead of just to review afterward. This way you can measure learning as you go. So, we decided to create task card sets for every TEKS Readiness Standard for reading, math, and writing. We will have 2 sets available for each TEKS Readiness Standard, a basic set and an advanced set, which allows the teacher to assess learning at various learning stages, making them perfect for differentiation.

When you purchase this BUNDLE, you get all of our Basic & Advanced MATH READY 3rd Grade Data Analysis & Financial Literacy Task Cards – 4 total sets!!


These MATH READY task card sets focus on the one TEKS Readiness Standard and seven Supporting Standards for 3rd grade Math Data Analysis & Personal Financial Literacy:

•Summarize a data set with multiple categories using a frequency table, dot plot, pictograph, or bar graph with scaled intervals (3.8A)
•Solve one- and two-step problems using categorical data represented with a frequency table, dot plot, pictograph, or bar graph with scaled intervals (3.8B)
•Explain the connection between human capital/labor and income (3.9A)
•Describe the relationship between the availability or scarcity of resources and how that impacts cost (3.9B)
•Identify the costs and benefits of planned and unplanned spending decisions (3.9C)
•Explain that credit is used when wants or needs exceed the ability to pay and that it is the borrower’s responsibility to pay it back to the lender, usually with interest (3.9D)
•List reasons to save and explain the benefit of a savings plan, including for college (3.9E)
•Identify decisions involving income, spending, saving credit and charitable givings (3.9F)

The 2 BASIC sets help your students practice & apply their understanding of the data analysis & financial literacy skills listed below at a simpler, basic level with shorter questions, while the 2 ADVANCED sets rigorous, higher-level thinking questions with longer word problems, making the pair of sets perfect for differentiation.


*Though our MATH READY Task Cards are made with our Texas teacher friends in mind, they are also aligned with 3rd grade CCSS, making them easily usable by any 3rd grade teacher teaching data analysis & financial literacy all over the U.S.*

Instructions are included for 3 methods of review: task cards review in centers/groups/pairs/individuals, a SCOOT game, and a "Be the Teacher" game, but these cards can be used in a variety of other ways to meet your needs.
