Tricia M. re: I Have Who Has for Integer Operation Bundle
I'm hoping you can fix an error on the Subtracting Integers "I Have... Who Has..." There are two answers of negative 4. After playing with cards, I realized that the third card in the left column of page 7 should have an answer of positive 4. The card reads: "I have -4... Who has the value of -7 - (-20)"

Also as a suggestion, I'd like to see the phrasing on the subtraction, multiplication, and division cards mimic the addition cards, which ask about sum rather than value. For my 7th graders, the reinforcement of sum, difference, product, and quotient is always good!

Thank you for this product though - my students LOVED it!

Lindsay M. re: Multiplying Fractions Panda Pirate Find
Hi--I just bought this and I was wondering if an answer sheet for the kids to record their answers is supposed to be included? On the directions page, it indicates that there should be one but I can't find anything in the included document except for the task cards and answer key for the teacher. Just wanted to clarify if there should/shouldn't be one. Thanks!

-EDIT: That does help, thank you!

I have my students work the problem on the card they received and then I put the teacher answer key on my podium for them to check their answer. When they know their answer, they can confirm if the other students get that answer as they share problems. Does that help?

Should there be an answer sheet included in this set? Not the answer key, but you refer to an answer sheet in the directions that the students use to write down their solutions.
November 29, 2012 Report inappropriate comment

I did say that in the directions, and I did include an answer sheet with one of the other "find" activities. I quit putting them in it because I was just having my students write their answers in their math journal. I can very easily send you an answer sheet if you want. Send me an e-mail and I can e-mail you a copy. Here is my e-mail fortheloveofteachingmath@gmail.com Thank you so much for your purchases!

Algebra4All
Algebra4All  (TpT Seller) re: Solving Equations Fortune Teller Packet
I understand how these are made, we used to call them "cootie catchers", but what I don't understand is how they work with the equations. Can you walk me through what the students do once they have the fortune teller folded? And what is their motivation? Is there a fortune written inside or are they just checking if their answer was right?
August 31, 2012 Report inappropriate comment
For the Love of Teaching Math
What's funny is that I totally remember making them when I was in school, but I cannot remember what the heck we called them. The first time we made them in my classes, the students called them "fortune tellers" because the ones they make with their friends tell them what was going to happen when they grew up. That's why I call them a fortune teller. It wasn't until later that I realized most people called them cootie catchers. In my classes, I put the students in groups of two. One person holds the "cootie catcher" and the other person chooses a number. The student holding the catcher will open it back and forth the number of times as the student chose. The student not holding the catcher then chooses one of those equations and solves it. The student holding the catcher then lifts the flap to check to see if the answer is correct. They then trade places and continue until they've solved all of the questions. It's just a different and fun way of getting students to work a few problems. Thank you so much for your purchase. If you have any other questions, just let me know. Thanks!

There are 62 ordered pairs. I teach sixth grade math, and it was a nice challenge for some of them. They were extremely eager to do it, and worked diligently on it just because it was The Hunger Games.

Hello! I've been reading your posts on your blog all evening! I'm a brand new Jr. High math teacher (7th, 8th, advanced 7th, and pre-alg.) Many of the things you've said in your posts are now my reality. You talked about something that really changed your way of teaching and pushed you to teach more for mastery and with the aim of getting to EVERY student. This HANDS ON MATH book! Would you happen to remember who publishes this book? I would love to give it a look through and possibly add it to my horrible curriculum that I am tied down to. I'm such an energetic and fun teacher, at least I think I am, and I try to do as many hands-on activities to help students see and feel the math instead of doing boring lectures with students drooling as they fall asleep at the sound of my voice! Lol! I would really appreciate any references or materials that you could recommend that helped you! Thanks for the awesome posts!

Another book called The Middle School Mathematician is another excellent book. It's got a lot of AMAZING games in it! Please, please, please let me know if you have any questions.
