Self-checking math activities are great for giving students incentive to figure out answers while encouraging independent problem solving. Plus, they're a little more hands-off for teachers than other math activities, freeing up time to work more closely with students who are struggling.

I wanted to make a math activity that was both self-checking to increase student independence and that could possibly cut down on grading. After some thought, I came up with an idea for a set of solve 'n check math task cards.

Since then, I've made a bunch of sets of these solve 'n check task card activities and have plans to make more. They're not bundled, but the algebra-focused sets will all be included in my algebra activities bundle.

Task cards are so versatile. I like using them as practice soon after introducing a topic to see where students need more review. I also use them as assessments to measure what students know without test anxiety as an added variable.

**How do solve 'n check math task cards work?**

First, Students solve both problems on their card. Then, they either add, subtract, multiply or divide their two answers and compare to the check number in the lower right corner. If their check number matches, chances are their two problems are correct! Each set comes with an answer sheet and an answer key.

The cards allow students to work independently and are nice for math stations, group or independent work. You can see a current list of solve 'n check math task cards here:

The links below will also take you to each set.
