I like an active classroom where everyone is busy. If you stop in one day it will look like chaos, but it is a carefully orchestrated chaos that cleverly disguises all the learning that we are doing. I use a lot of activities -- and keep the kids moving. Research says that if anyone sits for more than 15 minutes, their brain disengages and learning is not happening. So I design a lot of activities to get kids moving, talking, thinking and participating.

Angle Relationship Partner Practice

(0)
Practice solving angle relationships with 6 different pairs of collaborative worksheets for students. Pairs of students complete different worksheets of 8 problems--each pair with the same answers. This allows students to work their problem and check the answer with a partner, if they do not match, then both students work together to find the error. Topics include Linear Pairs, Vertical and Adjacent Angles. Angles formed by Parallel lines cut by a transversal. Also included are 9 different exit tickets to use to assess student understanding. . Great activity for students to check their work, and promote problem solving skills. Use on one day for different levels of learners in the classroom or different days. You can also use as homework checks using one of the versions and follow up with the matching version the next day to have students check their homework answers. Answer keys for all are also included.

Domain and Range of Quadratics Digital Activity

(0)
Students practice finding the Domain and Range of Quadratics in this quick and easy Drag and Drop activity in Google Slides for Google Drive or Microsoft One Drive. Students look at each graph and determine which of the pieces correctly identify the Domain and Range and either move the piece to the appropriate place with a mouse, cut and paste in position or use a touchscreen to drag. On the accompanying Google Sheets (if you choose to use the link) Students can type in the letter of the range for each numbered equation and check if they are correct. I give my students the link to check when they have finished placing all the pieces. If their answer is correct, the space on the sheet will change color. If the answer is wrong, no change. Links to both are included as well as an answer key and detailed instructions on how to upload and share with students.

Slope Connect Four

Slope Connect Four

(0)
Students practice finding slope from 2 points in pairs by playing Connect Four. Each pair of students needs a pair of dice (I use the big foam dice for fun) and a student rolls the dice to determine the row and column of the problem they work. When the problem is completed on the included student worksheet, the partner checks the work and if it is correct the student marks the game sheet, if not the partner gets the square. Play continues until one student has 4 in a row. Students love playing games and throwing dice, so this gives them the opportunity to do both while practicing the valuable skill of finding slope. You can laminate the game sheets for extra use or print extras. 3 different game sheets included with answer keys. This purchase is for one teacher only. Additional teachers must purchase their own license. You may not upload this resource to the internet in any form. If you are interested in purchasing several licenses, please contact me for a district-wide quote at bluemountainmath

Multiplying and Dividing Decimals Puzzle Set

(0)
Students practice multiplying decimals in two of these puzzles and dividing decimals in the other two puzzles. Set includes 4 different puzzles with 2 different levels of difficulty for students to practice multiplying and dividing decimals. Answer Keys are included for all. In the simpler level, the outside edges are blank, so if students are having difficulty, have them arrange the pieces so the blank sides are on the outside. In the more challenging level, the edges have additional problems/answers in the border to make solving a little more difficult. Puzzles finish at about 9 inches square and can be taped/glued to card stock or poster paper and make a lovely bulletin board display. You can use the puzzles on different days, at stations or give the struggling students the simpler variation while more advanced students get level 2 puzzles.

Students practice write numbers in decimal notation and scientific notation by matching these 18 pairs of cards. This is a great collaborative activity in either pairs or groups—working to master several skills in one activity. In the 18 pairs of cards, one side has the number written in decimal notation and the other side is the number written in scientific notation. There are also many other ways to use these matching cards in the classroom. See my free product on ways to use matching cards in the classroom for creative ways to use these cards as a quick warm up or simple assessment.
Scientific Notation Domino Set

Scientific Notation Domino Set

(0)
Students practice matching standard notation to scientific notation in a game format. Set includes 4 different sets of dominoes: 8 Dominoes, 12 Dominoes, 16 Dominoes and 24 Dominoes. The smaller sets are great for pairs or even a student who likes to work alone. The larger sets are good for groups of 3 or 4. Dominoes are cut apart, placed face down and students draw all dominoes equally. Student with "start" places the first domino and then student with the match in their hand plays the next. This continues until one student is out of dominoes and is declared the winner. I usually give 5 points per domino left in other students hands and keep a running tally. Students love playing games in the classroom and this set will give them the opportunity to practice scientific notation and have fun at the same time. For students who struggle, have them practice rewrite each problem before they match.
Square and Square Roots Puzzle Set

Square and Square Roots Puzzle Set

(0)
Who doesn't love solving puzzles? Four cut and paste puzzles are included with 2 different levels of difficulty. Students can match squares of integers with their solution or find the solution to square roots. The basic level for each puzzles has blank edges. In level 2 the puzzles have extra answers/problems on the border pieces so students have to work a little harder to complete the puzzle. Note: these puzzles each contain 16 pieces and finish at 9 1/2 inches square, so students will need to tape/glue to scratch paper when the teacher has verified the solution is correct. The answer keys are included.
Quadratic Review Treasure Hunt

Quadratic Review Treasure Hunt

(0)
Students practice reviewing the graphs, equations, vertex, minimums of quadratic equations.. The 12 problem pages are posted either around the room or in stations. Students work in groups and can start at any place, once they solve the problem, they are directed to the next page to go. Students with an error find they they have been misdirected to the wrong place and work together to find their mistake and get back on track. This is an active classroom activity that gets students moving and talking. Teacher can check individual answer sheets or play a stand up/sit down game once students are finished. Teacher calls out one of the answers and students find it on their answer sheet and then teacher calls out the next answer. Students who have this answer remain standing, if not they sit down. This gives teacher feedback on which problems gave the most difficulty. Answer key is included as well as student worksheet to show their work.
Equation Domino Bundle

Equation Domino Bundle

(0)
Students practice solving one step, two step and multi-step one variable equations with integer answers. Great for review and practice as well as targeted intervention for struggling learners. Students cut apart and shuffle dominoes and then draw an equal number for their hand. The student with the start places that domino first and then students solve the equations in their hands to see who can place the next domino. Student who uses all their dominoes wins. Package include 3 sets of each: 8, 12, 16 and 24 dominoes. Smaller set is ideal for partner practice while the larger sets are great for groups of 3 or 4. Buying the bundle saves you money versus buying the 3 sets individually and includes One Step, Two Step and Multi Step Equation Dominoes from Blue Mountain Math. My classroom always features Fun Friday where we play review games and activities to develop skills in a collaborative atmosphere.
