Areas of 2D Shapes: BODMAS, and Algebra Problem Solving

7 page pdf booklet. Reminders of the rules (along with shape diagrams with dimensions) for obtaining the areas of squares, rectangles, triangles, rhombuses, parallelograms, and trapeziums are provided. There are 10 questions asking students to find missing areas, heights and widths using number values required for substitution into formulae provided for such 2D shapes. Three example algebraic problems are then reviewed and full workings (with reminders about BODMAS) provided: 1) Substitution of an x value into length and width expressions to find a missing area of a rectangle; 2) Finding the value of x given an area value for a rectangle, and length and width in terms of x; 3) Finding the value of x and a width given expressions in x for opposite lengths in a rectangle as well as its value of area. These examples are followed by another 10 questions for more able students requiring substitution of algebraic terms into such area formulae as per the 3 examples provided.

The MFM1P 6000, Grade 9 Applied Culminating Activity - Simply Amazing!

The MFM1P 6000, Grade 9 Applied Culminating Activity - Simply Amazing!

A fresh approach to a culminating activity for grade 9 applied math, far from the routine pencil and paper! The "MFM1P 6000" is an interactive computer game which gives students an opportunity to show what they have learned, using models and strategies used in current MFM1P classes, while providing endless opportunity for practice and timely remedial help! Students receive instant automated feedback worded in growth mindset language. This program also provides teachers an extensive summary of students strengths and areas of difficulty. Download Tip ◾Your computer will flag the program as a virus. It is just doing it's job as it should for any unknown executable file! Be assured it is safe. Click "more info" and then "Run Anyway" etc. I know how tough it can be to motivate students to review material from the start of the semester in preparation for EQAO and the final exam. Set them loose in a computer lab for a few days with the MFM1P 6000 and watch the magic happen! Please visit calfordmath.ca/MFM1P6000 for a complete layout of the culminating activity including a complete curriculum connection list, and an up-to-date list of bug fixes and changes. This activity generates every single problem randomly so that every student has a different set of problems and can try as many attempts as necessary to master each topic. The topics span the MFM1P curriculum, and are arranged in difficulty from $100 to $500 score value. To earn 100%, a student must earn $6000 or more, and complete at least two problems from each category. I had tremendous engagement and much EQAO success with my grade 9 applied class last year when I piloted this activity. I have also added and tweaked many things! The game is a Windows Desktop Application designed for a PC. It is not web based, so you will need to copy the game file to a public handout folder where students can open it. I think you and your students will LOVE this! I would love to hear how it goes with your class, and I welcome any suggestions you have! Thanks for checking this out, ~CalfordMath

Measurement Test Generator for Year 9

Measurement Test Generator for Year 9

This resource has been created in Microsoft Excel and is designed to be used as a test or practice test for Year 9 Measurement. Knowledge assessed includes: Perimeter, area, volume, total surface area and conversion between units in one, two and three dimensions. Admittedly, this resource does not comprehensively allow students to demonstrate knowledge at the A level against the Australian Curriculum for Year 9 as there is only one challenging worded problem at the end. I created this resource because I love having students ask for practice questions, but hate writing new questions and their solutions. This resource contains multiple choice questions and short answer questions as well as a solutions tab to each question for printing solutions. All values, and most worded problems are randomly generated from the 'Variables' tab to produce a unique set of questions when F9 (Windows) or fn F9 (Mac) are pressed. Most multiple choice questions will have their answer order randomized. Solutions are generated to match.

7th Grade Math Stations Bundle

7th Grade Math Stations Bundle

These middle school math stations are just what you need to help your students develop a deep understanding of mathematics. There are at least four stations in each set. The focus of these stations is for students to discover and apply mathematical principles. The students will delve into the mathematics and gain a strong foundation. These stations are set to take one to two class periods. These are great for group work but also work well as homework, assessments or individual work. Included in all stations is a recording sheet and answer sheet. What makes these different than other math stations available? Make Sense of Math stations are created with the intent that students will conceptually understand the mathematical concepts. These math stations are not simply "busy work" worksheets. Students will write, model, justify, create, explain and practice the mathematics.

Circle Area Math Stations

Circle Area Math Stations

Your students will discover the formula for the area of the circle and apply this knowledge to various higher-order thinking problems. These stations are perfect to get your students delving into the area of circles. The Following Stations are Included: • Discover Circle Area: Students will cut and paste a circle into a parallelogram, and analyze the area of the parallelogram to discover the formula for the area of a circle. • Calculate Circle Area: Students will use their knowledge of the circle area to calculate various circles, both in exact and approximate forms. • Area Analysis: Students will discover how the area of a circle changes when you scale the radius of a circle. • Geometric Circle Area: Students will use their knowledge of circle area to calculate areas of shaded regions. These would also be great to use as homework or assessments. Each station takes approximately 20-30 minutes. These math centers are aligned with common core 7.G.B.4

Area Surface Area and Volume Math Stations

Area Surface Area and Volume Math Stations

These area and volume math stations delve into area of irregular shapes, 3d surface area and volume. Students will analyze, create, calculate, explain, and apply the math to real-world situations. The Following Stations are Included: • Polygonal Area: Students will use their higher-order thinking skills to calculate the area of different shaped polygons. • 3d Surface Area and Volume: Students will calculate the surface area and volume of 3-dimensional figures. bull; Applied Surface Area and Volume: Students will solve real-world problems involving surface area and volume. • Dog House Design: Students will design a doghouse that must meet certain surface and volume conditions. Each station should take students 15-20 minutes to complete. This would be a good two-day activity. These math centers are aligned with common core 7.G.B.6 These would also be great to use as homework or assessments. These are perfect for math 7, but could also be an extension for math 6 or review for math 8. Recording sheet and answer sheet is included.
