thanks!

This is a great activity. However, there are still spelling mistakes and even though this has been pointed out by other buyers, the mistakes have not been corrected. I had to proofread and correct the mistakes before the product could be used. I'm glad it was editable.

OUTSTANDING! The perfect follow up to direct instruction for my on grade level 8th graders. They enjoyed it, as did I. I copied it on to BRIGHT orange paper so the answers were easily visible around the room. And very fairly priced, thanks!

Love your Clue game so I can't wait to use this activity with my classes. Always looking for ways to get my students out of their seats during class. Thanks for sharing!

This looks like so much fun. My students love scavenger hunts and I can't wait to use this with them. My classes loved your Clue game so they will enjoy this activity too.

Very cool idea; I have never seen a Mix Freeze Pair activity before. I love how it gets the kids moving. The only drawback is that it is not easy to check it (since every kid has 4 different problems). But it is worth it.

January 29, 2014

Keri P.

My kids loved this! I rewrote some of the problems because some of the murder scenarios had duplicate problems. It wasn't a big deal though. I divided my class into pairs and had each pair solve two murder mysteries.

Buyer

There are still some spelling errors in the product. As other reviewers have noted, the celebrities do need updating, but I appreciate that the product in editable so that is easily accomplished. Overall nice idea. I was using it for a course with upperclassmen (College Readiness) so I used only one of the scenarios provided and "beefed" it up a little to make it slightly more challenging. Good jumping off point for that purpose.

December 13, 2013

Madeline N.

This was a great activity to use with my Algebra 2 students. Many of them were tired of solving linear systems problems over and over again, so this gave them some motivation. One improvement is that I'd like to see a bit more thorough instructions with this activity.

This is almost the same exact activity as Barbie Bungee on the NCTM Website. http://illuminations.nctm.org/Lesson.aspx?id=2157

I wanted to tell you before a case of copyright Infringement comes along.

Jen Brown (TpT Seller)

Thank you for letting me know. I created this worksheet in 2003 (and revised my copy several times over the years) and theirs says copyright 2008. I actually hadn't seen their activity until you showed it to me so I guess great minds think alike! Thanks again!

Ms Rassier (TpT Seller) re: Systems of Linear Equations Activity - Clue Game

Can I please get as a PDF also? The equations are all symbols.

Brenda E. re: Exponents and Exponential Functions

Are there directions for "Around the World" and "Comparing Banks"? Thanks

Jen Brown (TpT Seller)

Good evening! Sorry about that- here are the directions for each:

Around the world: Cut each page along the solid line. Hang the pages in random order around the room. (Sometimes I let first period kiddos hang a page where they wanted to around the room and they thought it was fun to put them in weird places!). Then kids would start at any page they wanted. They work out the problem on the top and then find their answer on another page around the room. They then work the problem on the top of the new page they just found and continue until they make it back to where they started. If they don't find their answer then they know they made a mistake.

Comparing Banks: I hung each 'bank' page around the room. (If you have a big class, hang 2 or 3 copies of each bank so the students aren't crowded around one page). Then students walk to each bank and use their worksheet as place to calculate which bank will give them the most money with their raffle winnings.

Hope that helps! Have a great night!

Algebra4All (TpT Seller) re: Math Models Activities

Are these paper and pencil activities or are they lab style activities where students build and record?

Jen Brown (TpT Seller)

Hi! Thanks for stopping by! This set of activities has a little of both. Some are lab style that have the students take measurements or gather data. Some are activities that the data is given to them and they build the table, equation, and extrapolate info. One or two are games, there is a small activity using the internet, two use CBLs, etc. None are plain worksheets that are just a bunch of practice problems. Hope that helps! If you have any other questions, let me know. Have a great night!

Leslie Mohlman (TpT Seller) re: Exponents and Exponential Functions

Could you tell me what activities are included in this packet? I'm looking for an exponential decay activity that's not with M&Ms or pennies. Thanks!

Jen Brown (TpT Seller)

Hi Leslie!

I have an exponential decay with CBL's in my listings (not sure if you have those in your classroom): http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Exponential-Cooling-Lab-with-CBL

I have another exponential decay activity with bouncing basketballs but I don't have it in my shop. I can email it to you if you want (assuming I can find it on my flash drive!). I used it in my class and loved it, but it is an extension of a textbook activity which is why I don't sell it. What is your email address?

The only other activity in the packet is the M&M's so you may not want to purchase this set if you are looking for a decay activity. :)

thank you for your immediate feeback, I do not know what happened:( vcj913@gmail.com

Jen Brown (TpT Seller)

No problem! I am emailing the files now so check your junk folder if you don't see them. Thanks!

Dr VCJ (TpT Seller)

Additionally, it says that there are six sets of documents. This is not included in the folder which was download. :( I don't see any of this in the zip folder.

Dr VCJ (TpT Seller) re: Systems of Linear Equations Activity - Clue Game

I downloaded this activity but I do NOT see the files which are shown in the sample. There are only two files in the zip drive. A student answer sheet and a computerized input sheet written in calculator code. This is not what was shown in the preview. Please explain before I leave my review. Where is the game information? please use vcj913@gmai.com - Thank you for your immediate feedback. I do not know what happened:(

Jen Brown (TpT Seller)

Good morning! That is odd- you are the first person to have this problem! I am about to run out the door for a couple hours but I will find the files and email them to you later today or tonight. What is the best email address to get them to you? Thanks!

Julie L. re: Algebra II Files Bundle

Two questions.

1. Does this overlap with your other Algebra model sampler (8 ish dollars, I think)?

2. If you need to post as a PDF (as someone asked in a previous question), cutepdf.com is a great free program. You simply select cutepdf as the printer and save the document.

Jen Brown (TpT Seller)

Good evening! Thanks for your questions! There is very little overlap with the two items. I did a quick comparison and there are only about 2 files that overlap. There are more items in the Alg II files compared to the Algebra sampler. Thanks for the tip on cutepdf- I will have to check it out! Have a great night!

Scipi (TpT Seller) re: Partner Building Questions

I saw your store on the home page of Teachers Pay Teachers; so, I thought I would look at your freebie. I left you a rating. Well done ! I have a couple of suggestions that might help to better market this product. First, skip lines between the questions as the text can be overwhelming. Even add some clipart to break up the text. Also, create a cover page which can then be used as an attractive thumbnail to entice buyers. You might also add a second page which is a directions or suggestion page. List several ways you use these questions. Never assume that a buyer knows how, why, or when to use your product.

I hope you will have time to rate one of my freebies listed below.

Buyer

Thanks. I would be happy to create a link.Thanks for your response. I am currently building a website/online school. The address is www.universalhomeschool.com/custom. It will not be live for another 6 â€“ 8 months because there is so much work to be done. I am currently trying to build up material including videos, lessons, worksheets, presentations and more. A lot of this material is being created by myself. I hope that the site will be successful in providing students with a vast resource of information that will help them become more successful. Any material that I use that was not created by myself I will make sure credit has been given to the author. Let me know what you think, if you donâ€™t mind me using your work, either way is fine. If you have any suggestions for me I would also appreciate that. Thanks for taking the time.

Buyer re: Algebra II Files Bundle

I'm really interested in this bundle, but i was hoping you could tell me a little more specifically what topics you have material on. Thanks

Jen Brown (TpT Seller)

Sure! I made screenshots of the lists of documents in each folder and will attach it as a preview to this file. If that doesn't work, let me know your email address and I will email it to you! Thanks!

Buyer re: Systems of Linear Equations Activity - Clue Game

Jennifer, is there any way you can post this as a PDF file? When I looked at the preview all of the words and equations did not appear correctly.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE
