Exponents 3 – Math puzzle

Exponents 3 – Math puzzle

Exponents 3 – Math puzzleI’ve included two different sizes of the same puzzle. The smaller size is only two pages and it great if you are going to print of individual copies for students to practice with in class or at home. The larger size requires 8 pieces of paper and quite a bit of space to solve – fun for centers and group work!Cut out the puzzle pieces (or even better if your students do it themselves) and students are to solve the puzzle so that it matches the solution provided. If your students are going to cut out the pieces then no prep is needed – the puzzle is not in order.I’ve been using these puzzles for years with great success! I recommend printing the puzzles on colourful paper and laminating them. This way you only have to cut them out once and they will last year after year!What is included in this product?• The solution to the puzzle – Pages 3 – 4 • The normal size puzzle – Pages 5 – 6 • The large size puzzle – Pages 7 – 14 • Expressions and Answers in a table format for easy grading or you can cut these out to play a matching game – Pages 15 – 16 My students love doing these types of puzzles.This product can also be used as a perfect revision of the school work to do at home. All answers can be easily checked thanks to the included solution to the puzzle or questions and answers shown in a table.Thank you for checking my resources.

A-Level Physics / Maths - Introduction to logarithms (Lesson plan and PowerPoint)

This is the first of three lessons that introduce the idea of logarithms The PowerPoint takes students through the difficulties in graphing data of wide ranging numbers and then, using the E-M spectrum and H-R diagrams, shows how log-log graphs can be used to display this data.This is part of the essential mathematics skills needed for A-Level Physics

Colouring by Equations, Harriet Tubman (20 Sheet Mosaics, 3 Topic Versions)

Colouring by Equations, Harriet Tubman (20 Sheet Mosaics, 3 Topic Versions)

Celebrate Black History Month in unique way as your math class collaboratively creates a large Harriet Tubman mosaic by solving equations! This product includes three different versions, each consisting of 20 worksheets/colouring grids: ◾ Linear Equations (1 and 2 step, multistep, proportions, distributing) ◾ Quadratic Equations (factorable, common factor first, simple, complex, quadratic formula required) ◾ Exponential and Logarithmic Equations (A variety of algebraic and application problems)Each worksheet represents a small section of the big picture! This task ensures individual accountability (every worksheet is different) while harnessing collaborative motivation (Every worksheet is needed for the mosaic). The end result will look spectacular hanging up in your classroom, and your students will be proud! A Complete Answer Key is provided for the whole class set of worksheets, so no stress when it's time to assess! A completed coloured mosaic is also provided, with coordinates, for easy assembly of the image.All worksheets contain 12 problems. Students use their answers to decode the colour-by-number grid, then combine their coloured grids to create the large mosaic image! It's simple! 1. Calculate the answers. 2. Colour the squares. 3. Cut out your section. 4. Combine with the class!Leave the picture a secret or show it for motivation… it’s your call.Encourage students to check their answers by finding them in the randomized list on their worksheet before they colour each square. This will increase the accuracy of the final picture!All my “Colouring by…” worksheets use standard pencil-crayon colours found in the Crayola 24 pack. For best results, use the exact colour name match (and encourage quality colouring!). Perhaps a class set of pencil crayons would be a fun math department investment! Thanks for checking this out! ~CalfordMath

Colouring by Exponentials and Logarithms, Woody (3 versions, 12 sheet mosaics)

Colouring by Exponentials and Logarithms, Woody (3 versions, 12 sheet mosaics)

Highly Engaging!! Students apply their knowledge of logarthm properties and exponent laws to solve equations and application word problems. They use their answers to decode the colour key needed to colour their section of the large 12-section Woody mosaic. Three versions are included!◾ Logarithmic Functions (simplifying using log laws, evaluating expressions, word problems about dB levels, and caffeine levels)◾ Exponential Functions (solve equations where: both sides can be expressed as powers of the same base, logarthms are required, quadratic type exponential equations like 2^2x - 3(2)^x - 4 = 0, word problems involving half life, and compounding interest)◾ Exponential and Logarithmic Equations (a variety of equation types, no word problems)Every student has a different worksheet! The end result will look spectacular hanging up in your classroom :) This makes a great unit summative assessment or test-prep review! I designed it for my MHF4U Advanced Functions grade 12 math class as a unit summative for the Exponential and Logarithmic Functions unit. INCLUDED: (in both .docx and .pdf format)◾ 3 class sets of 12 worksheet mosaics (eachs sheet is unique!). Each set combines to create the mosaic of Woody◾ Complete answer key, giving the answers for all worksheets (easy assessment!)◾ Teaching Tips page for smooth implementation in your class◾ Coloured mosaic guide for easy assembly◾ Scrambled answers list at the bottom of each student's worksheet, allowing for self assessment.◾ Handy formulas provided on students' worksheets◾ "Type of Problems" sequence that each worksheet follows, included for each version.Encourage students to check all their answers by finding them in the scrambled list at the bottom of their worksheet before they colour. This will increase the accuracy of the final picture!All my collaborative math mosaics use standard pencil-crayon colours found in the Crayola 24 pack. For best results, use the exact colour name match, colour darkly, and stick to one colouring medium (i.e. don't mix crayons with markers with pencil crayons...). Perhaps a class set of pencil crayons would be a fun math department investment!If your class size doesn’t line up with 12, no worries! You can make two mosaics, or hand out duplicate sheets to those less likely to appreciate the colouring component of the task ;) (I plan to create a 20 sheet version of this task in the future as well)Feedback, suggestions, and frontline stories are always welcomed!"You've got a friend in math" ~CalfordMath (@live.ca)HSF.LE.A.4HSF.LE.A.1
