    Vonda Adams demonstrated using a Math Balance at the EdCamp. Here is a video of a similar demonstration she and Stephanie Kidd made.https://youtu.be/PyryPU82vKY

    • There are more than one type of Math Balance for modeling different concepts including Greater than, Less than, and Equal to.

    Here’s how we celebrated Pi Day this year in 1st Grade. This was my first time celebrating this day, so I’m sure next year will be even better.

    • Celebrating Pi Day in the primary grades is a great way for students to gain prior knowledge about Pi. Thanks for sharing some grade appropriate activities.

    A new video I made on a Cookie Comparison activity I did where I combined economics (consumerism) and Math (graphing, data).

    My students seem to struggle with number sense. I try to use the website http://www.estimation180.com as a Bellringer. It uses a visual representation to allow students to estimate, and I sometimes require students to justify their estimate to promote math conversations.

    • Nice. Visual, real world examples are the best. Some students may have actually filled a condiment cup with ketchup before – it’s definitely something they could try themselves if they wanted to test it out. What grade do you teach?

    • I teach 5th and 6th grade.

    A lesson video I posted to teachertube on how we celebrated the 100th day of school this year! (a little late, but better late than never…)

    Since I liked Amanda’s constructed responses so well, I decided to categorize some of my 8th grade constructed responses and short answer questions by standards as well. Feel free to use them or comment with some of your own!

    This is a matching activity involving systems of equations that I created. Different forms of equations are presented to promote students to solve the systems using a variety of methods. I make my students at least solved 2 equations using graphing, substitution, and elimination. This is owned and created by me. Feel free to use or change anyway…

    Here is an activity my 7th grade completed while working on box plots. During the activity, students where placed in groups and each group was given a partner group. Each partner group was given one of the two prompts that were attached. Once students had an answer, the partner groups would switch and proof read the other other groups response.…

    Attached is a word wall for 8th grade vocabulary ready to print and hang as you do each unit. I do not own any of the images, some were created using word equations but most are good google images that with some modification illustrate the definition of essential vocabulary.

    I have created a resource with many CCS aligned extended response questions and short answer questions. Each page has a different standard and question set. The last page is a copy of the ERQ gridded response sheet typically used in KPREP.

    The understanding of exponents can be a tricky concept to teach mainly because the amount of rules that go along with it. To make it easier and a bit more exciting for my students I gave them the option to do a parody song to get a better understanding of exponents. This assignment alone has been something that my Algebra 1 students bring up…[Read more]

    Here lately my students learned about the concept of scale models and why it is important to be able to understand the differences that happen when you shrink or enlarge something. For a project I allowed my students to find a building or item that they feel would be something that they could create a scale model of. This allows for creativity…

    • Wow – so many different types of models – that’s so great! (Love Mr. Fredricksen’s house) I could see students learning almost as much from examining differences in each other’s models as creating their own.

    A little late with the post about Pi Day, but my students were never explained how pi came to be so we had an activity that allowed them to see that you get close (although not perfect) to pi by dividing your circumference by your diameter. This activity helped a lot of students get an understanding as to what pi is and why it is so beneficial…

    • When students discover the relationship between circumference and diameter for themselves they understand it so much better – thanks for sharing!

    This is a very interactive and engaging activity for teaching area and perimeter. It also allows for exploration and critical thinking/problem solving. Students are given a handful of cheez it crackers and a worksheet. The worksheet asks them to create different dimensions for the same area, or for example create a shape with an area of 10 and…

    • That’s what’s called “yummy math”. It’s not surprising that students grasped the concept better. Hands on, practical math is so important!

    As an introduction to geometric shapes and an introduction to using a ruler, students designed and calculated the measurement of their own unique Haunted House or Fall House. We re-used the skills we learned while making our own haunted or fall house when we created our Christmas villages. This could be used for any seasonal activity.…

    • I had the opportunity to see these. They were so fun to look at – some of the students really went in to detail – so engaging!

    Students collected three-dimensional real-world figures from their own homes and then used rulers to measure length, width, and height. Using this data they have collected, students calculated the volume of their 3D items. This activity was the culminating event for our volume unit.
