This was a FANTASTIC extension activity for my eighth graders who needed a little extra practice but not direct instruction. They LOVED cutting and gluing onto a big poster-sized sheet of construction paper.

Erica R. re: Algebra Warm-Ups Bundle - Covers most all Algebra Topics! + Smart Board Files!

Are warm-ups included with curriculum bundles?

Buyer

Hi - I'm thinking about using your resources next year in my classroom - they look awesome. I was wondering about your licenses. We put files on Google Drive for our students to access; would that be against your policy regarding posting on the internet/websites, etc?

Thanks so much!

Thanks so much!

All Things Algebra (TpT Seller)

Hi there!

First about licenses, you just need to purchase enough licenses for the number of teachers using the materials. They can be purchased at a discounted price.

About my policy regarding posting on the internet and websites, as long as it's password protected so that only students have access, that's totally fine.

Feel free to email me at allthingsalgebra@gmail.com if you have more questions.

Thank you!

Teri B.

Hello. I love your products. I only teach algebra 1, but seeing your products makes me want to teach geometry too. I have a few questions. How do you use the warms up? Do you grade them? What about the homework? Do you make your students keep a binder? What do you do when students are absent and miss an activity like a scavenger hunt, task cards? Lastly, if you purchase first or second semester bundles, do you receive updates, additions? Thank you.

All Things Algebra (TpT Seller)

Hi Teri!

I am happy to answer your questions and share the routines I use in my classroom.

Warm-Ups: My students get the student recording sheet that has room for 4 days worth of warm-ups. When they enter the room, the daily warm-up is on the board. I give them approximately 5-10 minutes to complete it. Then, we review the answers. I collect them after every four days and give them a completion grade. I rarely ever give anything below a 100 because they know it's an easy grade. If they are absent, they simply put "absent" in the box for that day. It's very difficult to make-up warm-ups.

Homework: I walk around and check homework daily while students are working on the warm-up. No work = no credit. If it's only halfway done, they get a 50. After the warm-up, I display the answer key and ask students to circle those that are missed and ask any questions they have. My principal is pretty big on not spending too much instructional time going over homework. I offer extra help sessions twice a week for students to get help on homework if they need it. On occasion, I collect the homework and grade it if it's a review assignment that did not consist of new material.

Binders: Binders are required at my school. Students must have a 4" binder with a divider for each subject. Each teacher must use a table of contents to keep students organized within their section. All notes are numbered and students record the numbers and dates on a table of contents.

Activities & Absences: Unfortunately, it's not possible to for students to make up some of these activities, so I just record them as an excused missed assignment in the gradebook. They are however responsible for making up the notes, homework, and any tests or quizzes they missed while absent.

Updates & Additions: The only packs that come with free future products are my curriculum bundles. The semester packs do not. If you are interested in upgrading from the semester packs to the curriculum bundle, you can absolutely do so. Just email me at allthingsalgebra@gmail.com so I can look up the purchase history and give you a quote.

I hope that helps!

LOVE your materials! Are you going to complete anything for Algebra 2? If not, do you have a recommendation for someone else similar to your style?

Thanks for all of your creative ideas!

Thanks for all of your creative ideas!

All Things Algebra (TpT Seller)

Awww, thank you so much! I have never taught Algebra 2 before, so creating would be a bit of a challenge. I do have that on my long-term goal list though :) I really don't know of anyone who sells Algebra 2 materials similar to mine. But I will definitely keep my eye out.

Joanna H. re: All Things Algebra - My Entire Algebra I Curriculum!

Just wanted to say thank you again for your resources. I just finished our year and I used your entire Algebra Curriculum for the year. I had 100% proficiency on the Math 1 EOC!!! Thanks again!

All Things Algebra (TpT Seller)

Wow!! That is so incredibly awesome. Good for you and your students! This makes me so happy. Thank you for sharing!!!

Buyer re: Multi-Step Equations Relay Race Activity

How do you do the relay races with your students? Thank you!

All Things Algebra (TpT Seller)

Hi there! For this particular relay race, I place my students in groups of choose a person to start. They get the paper to begin and do problem #1. The other three are allowed to help and coach, but they must do all the work. Once they get an answer, they give the paper to person #2. Person #2 takes the answer to problem #1 and substitutes it into their problem to solve. Once again, the other three are allowed to help and coach, but only person #2 can write on the paper for problem #2. This keep going until all four problems are solved. The first group to finish their four problems and bring me their paper with four correct solutions gets a prize. It takes longer than you think! They want to rush, but quickly learn that taking their time and ensuring accuracy is the best strategy.

I hope your students enjoy it!

Gina

Holly D.

Great stuff and great quality. I think I found one answer error though (one out of about a million I've used of yours)

In the Exponent Rules Bundle: One the "Powers of Monomials" sheet answer key. #10. I think the answer should be b^4 instead of b^8.

But let me say: You rock. your stuff is excellent.

Hi Holly! Thank you so much for letting me know. I will look at that this weekend and update it.

Anansa Green (TpT Seller)

I purchased your Algebra I curriculum and have been using it this year. Overall, I love it! I can't seem to find all the notes for the Radicals unit, though. I tried re-downloading the files to see if I missed an update or something, but I still don't see it in there. I have several activities, the unit test, and the note/puzzle combo for simplifying radicals, but I need the notes for adding/subtracting, multiplying, etc. as well. Could you email them to me or add them to the dropbox version? Thanks!

All Things Algebra (TpT Seller)

Hi there! I actually don't have notes and homework on radicals. Aside from simplifying, radicals are part of our algebra 2 curriculum, not algebra 1. I used to teach it to my honors classes about 7-8 years ago and came across my old test last summer so I tossed it in for anyone who wanted it. I'm currently working on supplemental resources for radicals and hope to write a full unit within the year.

Best,

Gina

Tina K.

I just purchased the end of year algebra review and look forward to using it this week. I noticed that there are 6 terrific review packets with a short multiple choice quiz at the end of each packet. However, the 6th packet has no quiz. Is this an accidental omission or will you be adding that soon? Thanks so much!

All Things Algebra (TpT Seller)

Hi Tina! There are six review packets with five quizzes. After the sixth packet, I give a released state test for practice. Thank you!

Buyer

This is a message to beg you to expand your product line to cover Algebra II topics. I LOVE your TPT products and have purchased several, but I teach mostly Algebra II. Please consider :)

All Things Algebra (TpT Seller)

Awwww, thank you! I'm currently working on expanding more of my geometry line, but algebra 2 is definitely on my list for the future. That's a bit of a challenge because I've never taught it before though!

Secondary Math Shop (TpT Seller) re: Algebra Warm-Ups Bundle - Covers most all Algebra Topics! + Smart Board Files!

Is the answer key just the answer or is it annotated showing the work to get the answer as well?

Buyer re: Exponent Rules (Properties) - Koosh Ball Game!

I have purchased the game which looks like a lot of fun, but I cannot get it to work with a Koosh ball! Do I need a special kind of Koosh ball? I have a new SmartBoard and the game works fine as long as I use my computer mouse. I am running the notebook file from a PC. Can you help? Thanks!

All Things Algebra (TpT Seller)

Hi there! Here is a blog post I wrote about my Koosh ball games. Take a look at the picture of my Koosh ball to compare to yours. Another idea is that you may want to turn off "SmartInk" while trying to play the game. Sometimes it won't work if that's running in the background. Just hit Ctrl-Alt-Del, Start Task Manager, Processes, and end all instances of SmartInk. Here's that blog post link:

What do you mean when you say to use KISS when solving absolute value inequalities?

All Things Algebra (TpT Seller)

Hi there! It's a trick I taught my students for setting up the two inequalities. It stands for "keep it, switch switch"

For example, given |x - 2| > 9:

-Keep it the same, x - 2 > 9

-Then switch the inequality and switch the sign of the last number, x - 2 < -9

Solve both and graph the solutions on a number line to show all possible solutions.

My strugglers always responded to this method quite well. I hope it helps!

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught Math 8, Algebra, Honors Algebra, and Geometry for the past 8 years in Virginia.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am a fan of structured notes that are easy to for students to read, followed by lots of fun activities to keep them engaged and practice their new skills! I am ALWAYS looking for new ideas that present concepts to my students in a fun and exciting way. I believe that the appearance of what we give our students matters greatly. In a day where we are competing with the newest gadgets, we need to grab their attention and interests.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I graduated from the State University of New York at Brockport in 2006 with a degree in Mathematics, Computer Science, and Education.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Originally from Orchard Park, NY, I relocated to Virginia with my husband, and our two sons Jacob (age 4) and Logan (age 2). I have taught Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, and Geometry to 8th graders for the past 8 years and LOVE IT! Not only is teaching my passion, but also creating materials that students can relate to, find more appealing, and make learning more fun. I'm slowly working on getting all my materials posted up here, but if there is anything that you need related to the Pre-Algebra or Algebra I curriculum, I likely do have it. Don't hesitate to contact me and ask!
