Ordering Decimals Center Activity

Ordering Decimals Center Activity

This is an no prep math center for comparing and ordering decimals through the thousandths place! All that needs to be done is to print and copy the pages for your students. There are eight different pages, each using a real-world decimal scenario that requires students to order the decimal numbers and answer questions about the position of the values. Students easily cut out pieces to use as instant manipulatives to help them order the decimals on an open number line and write greater than and less than inequalities. The activities are arranged two to a page for quick and paper efficient copying. The size also allows for easy use in interactive notebooks, even composition books! A answer key and teacher guide are included to help you check your students' work and get set up. Common Core Standards: 5.NBT.A.3.b Texas TEKS: 5.2B

Halloween Math Puzzles for Middle School

Halloween Math Puzzles for Middle School

Have some fall or Halloween fun in your middle school math class with these no prep math activities. The content features order of operations, equivalent fractions, decimals, and percents, integer operations, and logic puzzles... and all of the activities feature a fall favorite, trick or treat candy! Candy Corn Order of Operations All your students will need is a pencil and the page. The students should use the middle of the candy corn to work the problem and write the answer in the bottom of the candy corn. The shape of the candy is perfect to guide your students to show correct work on order of operations. An answer key is included. You can also have your students color the candy corn after they have checked their answers. Trick or Treat This is a fall take on true or false. Students read each scenario about equivalent fractions, decimals, and percents. They decide if it is a “trick” or a “treat”. If it is a “trick” the students should make a change to make it a “treat”! For a fun variation, let your students earn a small candy or other seasonal treat for each question that the prove is a treat or turn into a treat! The answer key is provided. Collecting Candy Let your students go trick or treating right in their desks! To play this game print a recording sheet for each student and a game board. The students can share a game board between 2 or 3 students or each have their own. You will need to provide: dice and player tokens. Students multiply and combine integers to see who can score the most candy. This game can be played again and again at any time of the year! Logic Puzzles There are two different types of logic puzzles included. Both have an answer key. Just print them out! Save paper by printing these front and back. You may want to provide scratch paper for students to show work and space for their thinking. Although these activities are themed around fall and trick or treat candy, the term Halloween is not used at all, if that is an issue for your students or your class. Feel free to check out the preview to see if this resource meets your students' needs!
