Exceeding The Core

I have been teaching math full-time for the past 13 years from grades 7 - 10. I am currently teaching 7th grade math and serve as a Peer Instructional Coach.I teach using engaging hands-on activities in all my lessons. I also love integrating technology into my lessons whenever possible. My number one priority when teaching a lesson is to make it meaningful to my students lives.

INTEGERS Word Problems - Error Analysis (Find the Error)

(0)
Have your students apply their understanding of INTEGERS with these ERROR ANALYSIS activities. Benefits of Math Error Analysis: Giving students opportunities to identify and correct errors in presented solutions allows them to show their understanding of the mathematical concepts you have taught. Whats Included: This resource includes 10 real-world INTEGERS word problems that are solved incorrectly. Students have to IDENTIFY THE ERROR, provide the CORRECT SOLUTION and share a helpful STRATEGY for solving the problem. An ANSWER KEY has also been provided with examples of possible answers. Be sure to download the sample for a full overview of what you get. How to Use: When I present this activity to my students, I tell them that these are errors that students from my other class made and I need their help to correct them. Students LOVE correcting other students mistakes. Students can use these activities with a partner, as a warm-up , as classwork, homework, in math centers or group work. Topics included: ✔ absolute values ✔ opposites ✔ adding integers ✔ subtracting integers ✔ multiplying integers ✔ dividing integers ✔ finding the average of integers ✔ evaluating expressions with integers Common Core Alignment: *7.NS.1 -Apply and extend previous understandings of addition and subtraction to add and subtract rational numbers; *7.NS.2 - Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication and division and of fractions to multiply and divide rational numbers. *7.NS.3 - Solve real-world and mathematical problems involving the four operations with rational numbers. *Mathematics Practice Standard 3 (construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others). FEEDBACK on this resource: ♥ Great for higher order thinking! ♥ This is such a great way for students to see common errors and ensure they don't make the same mistakes. Generates a lot of discussion. Thank you. ♥ Great to generate discussion from my gifted 7th graders.

Need a SPIRAL REVIEW of the 6th Grade Common Core standards? This resource contains 20 WEEKS of review specifically written for the common core math standards for 6th grade. Being a middle school teacher myself, I created this resource to give students daily and weekly review of the 6th grade curriculum including: ✔ Ratios and Proportional Reasoning (6RP) ✔ The Number System (6NS) ✔ Expressions and Equations (6EE) ✔ Geometry (6G) ✔ Statistics and Probability (6SP) The review sheets are organized into 5 boxes. Each box contains problems from the 5 domains of the 6th grade CCSS standards. This resource can be used for WARM UPS, HOMEWORK and math CENTERS. This is also a great resource for test prep. This resource is 100% EDITABLE!!! This gives you the ability to go into any problem and remove or change it. This feature is important because it gives you the control over what your students get each day/week. If something doesn't align the way you would like it to, just copy/paste from a different week’s sheet, or create your own problem (Microsoft Word). Feedback on this resource: ♥ Money well spent! I am using these as bell ringers. Thanks! ♥ Nice review for my 7th graders at the start of the year to reinforce those 6th grade standards. ♥ Perfect for review at a center!
