Product Questions & Answers

On  October 12, 2012Anne Andrews (TpT Seller) asked:
is there an answer key?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  October 12, 2012K-5 Math Teaching Resources answered:
There is no answer key at this time. Many of the tasks are open ended and have more than one possible solution. See the Math Journal gallery on our website for some sample student work.

On  August 27, 2012,  Buyer asked:
I recently downloaded this and printed several pages onto Avery 5160. By the time it got to half the page, the tasks were already overlapping onto 2 labels. Is there anyway to fix this so that it will print correctly? Thanks
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  August 27, 2012K-5 Math Teaching Resources answered:
Try this:
1.Verify that you have a current version of Adobe Acrobat Reader. To determine the version of Adobe Acrobat, open Adobe from your desktop or start menu, click on help, and then About Acrobat Reader. If you have a version of Acrobat Reader less then 7.0, download a FREE update to your reader from the Adobe Reader download page on Adobe's Web site.
2. When in the Preview Labels screen click the Print icon. Under Page Handling make sure Page Scaling is set to None and Auto-Rotate and Center is not selected. Click OK.
On  August 10, 20125th_is_Fab (TpT Seller) asked:
Hi there... I purchused this product last year and it did not include the extra tasks... is there any way I can pay you for just that page??? (5th grade math) I was going to buy the newer version... but it is not allowing me. It says I already purchused it and will only download older version. I would love the newer version :)
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  August 10, 2012K-5 Math Teaching Resources answered:
I just read your question again and understand what you are asking now. Sorry, not sure what I was thinking when I initially answered. You should have received a notification from TPT to download the update at the time it was released so not sure what happened there. If you email me via our website I can send you the update as an email attachment.
n/a
On  August 9, 2012,  Julie S. asked:
Is there an answer key for each task with this product?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  August 9, 2012K-5 Math Teaching Resources answered:
There is no answer key. We have a few worksamples available in the Math Journal gallery on our website and will be developing this more this school year. We encourage teachers to contact us via our website if there are tasks that they are unsure of but most of them are fairly straightforward. If you read the page on our website about implementing Math Journals you will see that a big part of Math Journal sessions is the Share at the end of the lesson. This is where students share their work and debate answers rather than the teacher being the one to give out the answers. Hope this helps!
On  March 26, 2012Mary Wainwright (TpT Seller) asked:
Do they need other materials for the prompts ? Like dice or cards or can they simpley be answered ?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  March 26, 2012K-5 Math Teaching Resources answered:
Most of the 5th grade questions do not require materials. A few of the questions do require materials commonly found in 5th grade classrooms such as numeral cards and Base 10 blocks.
