QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:

Cara Schletzbaum (TpT Seller)

There are a few errors in your Scientific Notation sets. In set 1, numbers 2 and 19 do not have correct answer cards to match them to. In set 2, number 14 doesn't have a correct answer card. And I find it interesting that these cards are inconsistent about putting in the leading zeros for decimal numbers. Seems like it sends a mixed message to students.

Grid Games Galore (TpT Seller)

Thank you so much for your statement. I have looked over each set as stated and made the necessary corrections. As for the leading zeros statement, I think students need to understand that whether there is a leading zero or not, the answers are equivalent. (0.03 is equivalent to .03 ) Unfortunately things change from publisher to publisher, grade level to grade level, and from teacher to teacher. Students may see that statement written numerous ways within the education setting so they need to be able to adapt to the requirement of the teacher.

Im4math (TpT Seller)

I bought the Advanced Math Matching --- In the table of contents it has tangent lines matching listed, but in the file that I downloaded it is missing.

Grid Games Galore (TpT Seller)

Really!!?? Let me look at the file, but in the meantime, I will send you the file for tangent lines matching. Please send me your email address so I can send you this file..

Could you please send me a comprehensive list of what you have to offer?

I would like to purchase a complete set of all of your Matching Mania and the Grid Games.

Grid Games Galore (TpT Seller)

I am sooo sorry. My email server is down and they have been unable to get it fixed. I have everything that I offer on my website www.gridgamesgalore.com, but if you will send me your email, I will send you a list of the table of contents of all the books you are interested in. I do have books from Kindergarten to 12th grade (pre-calc, calculus and alg 2) in both MatchingMania and Grid Games. All activities in TpT come from the books.

Thank you and I hope to hear from you soon. You might try this email gridgamesgalore@gmail.com. I am going to try to use this one more extensively due to the issues with the wildrice email.

Teresa Franklin (TpT Seller) re: Algebra I Grid Games Book

I don't have them yet, but they are actually in my cart ready to purchase. I will be purchasing them tonight - I just wanted to see about the Matching Mania before I bought them. I have looked at your samples, and they look great. I look forward to using them this fall.

Grid Games Galore (TpT Seller)

Hi. Let me know what you think. BUT, DO NOT BUY ANYTHING ELSE!! I owe you a book or two. Do you or will you be teaching Geometry?? Send me your email and i will send you geometry matchingmania and grid games. Also, i have a log mm that is new. I will attach it too. Thank you so much for your purchases!!

Teresa Franklin (TpT Seller) re: Algebra I Grid Games Book

Do the Matching Mania for Advanced Math (digital download) and Matching Mania for Algebra II (book) contain the same activities? On the picture they have a different cover and the descriptions are different, but the heading comes up the same when I click on them. Thanks, and I look forward to using some of your products.

Teresa Franklin

Grid Games Galore (TpT Seller)

Yes, they are the same. Thank you for your question because i need to change the titles!! Do you have one of them? Do you have the grid games for Algebra 2?

Buyer re: Algebra I GridGames

Is this the same as the hard copy Grid games for Algebra I?

Almaschool (TpT Seller) re: Scientific Notation MatchingMania

There is an error on the scientific notation set. I fixed it, but you might want to do that to protect your ratings.

Teaching High School Math (TpT Seller) re: Calculus Derivatives and Integrals MatchingMania

I just wanted to let you know that I featured this activity on my blog as a fun activity teachers could try in the calculus classroom. http://teachinghighschoolmath.blogspot.com Jennifer

Grid Games Galore (TpT Seller)

Thank you so much!!! I hope you got a few good comments. And i hope your blog is going well!! I will check it out!!

Im4math (TpT Seller)

Rational Exponents 2 -- I believe that #1 and M are supposed to match but M has the Y in the wrong place. Was there an answer sheet that was supposed to come with my download? Great resource --students love matching work! Thanks!

Grid Games Galore (TpT Seller)

Thank you for the information. I will look it over. If you will email me, i will send you the answer key with the fixed version.

Beth W. re: Percents MatchingMania

I purchased the Percent version. It looked good but when looking at the table of contents, I seem to be missing part of it. Should i have purchased a different version that included all of the table of contents? Thank you!

Grid Games Galore (TpT Seller)

The percent version includes the table of contents for the whole book MatchingMania Middle School- if you are interested in the book, email me at gridgames@wildrice.com and i will email you the book.

Lynn Vaughan (TpT Seller) re: Geometry MatchingMania

Hope it's okay I start following you. Please consider the same of me, and good luck selling your great elementary products/services!

Lura Milner (TpT Seller) re: Geometry MatchingMania

Hello, Just wanted to let you know that my class has enjoyed using your grid games and matching activities. However, we found some errors on the circles angles matching activity. (inscribed angles, etc.) The second circle, and the last two circles are not correct on the answer key or the answer dominoes themselves. They are off by two or three degrees for both x and y solutions. It was a good discussion around checking our answers - but I was hoping to get an updated version? (I have the entire Geometry matching package - how would you like to handle that?) Thank you so much!

Grid Games Galore (TpT Seller)

Let me correct those errors and send you a new, updated book. Thank you for letting me know. Please send your email to gridgames@wildrice.com and I will send you the updated, corrected version. Do you have the Geometry GridGames?

Thanks again.

Melisa

Thanks again.

The Marvelous Middle Grades (TpT Seller)

I did this activity with my class today. I believe there is a mistake on card "n". It didn't match up to cards "B" and "11" which were the only two we had left after completing the activity. There wasn't an answer key included so I couldn't check to see if I made the mistake. Let me know so I can make the change in my copy for future use.

Thanks!

Thanks!

Grid Games Galore (TpT Seller)

Please make the change accordingly. But which activity are you talking about so I can change my answer key and correct the activity. Also, thank you for your assistance.

Buyer re: Quadratic Formula MatchingMania

I downloaded the Quadratic sort ...I did not see a key

Grid Games Galore (TpT Seller)

Send me an email at gridgames@wildrice.com and I will send you the answer sheet.

Thanks.

Thanks.

Julie L. re: Geometry GridGames

As an FYI, your preview for the Geometry Grid Games is the TOC for the Geometry Matching Mania.

Julie L.

How much overlap is there between the Geometry, Middle School, or Advanced Matching Mania. Trig seems to be in both Advanced and Geometry and Some of the Geometry seems to be in both the middle school and geometry book. If they are at different levels, that's okay but I'm interested in whether they are the exact same activities.

Grid Games Galore (TpT Seller)

The trig is the same in both the geometry book and the advanced math book. The advanced book's main emphasis on on asymptotes, rational expressions and functions, etc. And the SA and V is the same in the Middle School and the Geometry. Geometry's main emphasis is parallel lines, polygons and angles. Since you have already purchased 4 books, contact me at gridgames@wildrice.com and I will just send you a couple books. Just specify which ones you might want. And thank you for your purchases.

Buyer re: Middle School Grid Games Book

Hi,

Could you pleae send me a more spectic list of topics covered?

Could you pleae send me a more spectic list of topics covered?

Grid Games Galore (TpT Seller)

You can find a complete list of table of contents on my website: www.gridgamesgalore.com. Or, if you would send me your email address, I would be happy to send you a pdf of the table of contents. The problem is the book contains over 33 concepts, and they are too numerous to list here. So, if this answer is not satisfactory and you are unable to view the website or send me an email, reply back and I will type the extensive list for you. Is that okay??? Thanks for your question.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have 31 years of teaching experience - 23 of those teaching in a small school setting where I was the ONLY math teacher. I currently teach in a large urban school, teaching Algebra I, Pre-AP Calculus and AP Calculus. I helped co-create our Algebra I curriculum to aid in success on the state tests. Scores went from 21% to over 80% since we rewrote the curriculum.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe math is a class attached to a student's self-esteem. If they believe in themselves and believe they can do it, they will succeed. Sometimes, I have to build the self esteem before I can begin to teach the math.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Teacher of the Year at Shawnee HS, Macomb PS and Coyle PS. I was also an Oklahoma Teacher of the Year finalist. I won the Presidential Award for Excellence in Math and Science Teaching in 1995 and I am a National Board Certified Teacher in Early Adolescent Math. However, being selected by a student to attend the Academic All State Banquet was one of the greatest honors I have ever received.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Attended Oklahoma State University (Go Pokes) for most of my undergraduate work. Then I transfered to the Unversity of Central Oklahoma where I graduated with my Bachelors of Science degree. After a LONG wait, I graduated from East Central University with my Masters Degree in high school counseling.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

My husband Chris and I are blessed with 2 wonderful adult children and their spouses. Ashley and her husband, Marcus, live in Yukon. Christopher and his wife, Jody, live in Cushing. They have 4 beautiful babies - Landon, Lauren, Blake and our newest arrival - Lance.
