There are a couple of numbers missing: 9 and 11 from the game board, but I loved how the problems were already created. Thank you for such a valuable resource. My students had LOADS of fun with this game.

Lexie, you have great stuff - Please include answer keys. Part of the reason I use TPT is to save time. If I have to create an answer key my time is lost.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:

Connie Hadley (TpT Seller) re: Factoring Sum and Difference of Cubes Graphic Organizer and Song

What "song" is this to?

Secondary Math Shop (TpT Seller) re: Solving Systems of Equations Practice Worksheet

Do you realize that your deme is the actual worksheet and that someone can save it without actually purchasing it?

Buyer re: Investigating Points, Lines, and Planes Activity

How do they represent points?

Lexie (TpT Seller)

You can have them actually draw the points or make holes in the note cards. Hope that helps!

Hilda Ratliff (TpT Seller) re: Distributive Property Graphic Organizer

Lexie, I actually purchased the graphic organizer from another seller which has no problems on it. I don't remember seeing yours. I thought the thumbnail was a cover sheet and that was the entire product. When I began to give feedback and clicked the link to ask a question, my question went to you. This was a mistake. Hilda

Hilda Ratliff (TpT Seller) re: Distributive Property Graphic Organizer

I bought your distributive property graphic organizer and all I received was a cover page with "Distributive Property" in the middle of the page. There was no graphic organizer. Is there another page?

Lexie (TpT Seller)

There should have been lines from the center and problems in each section. Depending on what program you opened it up with, but they are in equation editor. If you still are having problems, let me know and I will scan it and send it to you via an e-mail as a PDF file. Sorry for the issue!

Buyer re: Solving Equations Bingo

Hello! I downloaded the Solving Equations Bingo just in time for my 7th grade tutoring students to practice solving equations with variables on both sides of the equation, and with fractions. they will really enjoy playing bingo! Just a comment about one of the clues: You might consider changing the wording of 3 consecutive integers that sum is 45. to 3 consecutive integers whose sum is 45.

Buyer re: Factoring Bingo

Does the Factoring Bingo game come with more than one card to give the studnets?

Lexie (TpT Seller)

No. The students make their card from the answers below (I usually have them put numbers 1 - 24 in the boxes and not the entire answer).

To play the game, I start off by giving them 3 different ways to win. A traditional Bingo, the 4 corners, or a box of 4. Once some gets that type, it is gone and I add another type. They actually mark the box with a marker or pen with a big X. But, they can't color it in or you can't tell what they had there. Make sure they make their cards using markers or pens...they may try and erase the pencils. Below is a list of the different types of ways I allow the students to win.

1. Traditional Bingo

2. 4 corners

3. Box of 4

4. 2 bingo lines

5. Box of 9

6. 3 bingo lines

7. Box of 16

8. All 4 lines going through the center.

They love the game and it usually takes about 45 to 50 minutes to complete everything.

Let me know if you have any more questions.

Buyer re: Domain, Range, and Is it a function? Cards

Hi Lexie- Is this the only page?

Lexie (TpT Seller)

Yes, there was only 1 page. I would copy on different colors then cut them into cards. I actually gave each student a set of their own cards. It seems small, but it took my students about 10 minutes to do everything I was trying to get them to do.

Gladys Scott (TpT Seller) re: Order of Operations Practice Cards

hello, great idea. When you said they move around, do you place cards around the room.

Lexie (TpT Seller)

First, sorry it took me time to get back to you. Yes, you can place them around the room. But what I did in the past was I had them stacked in the front of the room and they would come up and get 1 card at a time.

Gladys Scott (TpT Seller) re: Linear Equations Practice

hello Lexie,

You charged a dollar but I was able to download free. Good worksheet. Will purchase something at another time. In a hurry

Gladys Scott (TpT Seller) re: Surface Area and Volume of Spheres Dominos

Are the answers included in this activity? Do you think this is a good activity for high school? I think it would be good to have a PowerPoint to go with it.

Lexie (TpT Seller)

If you look at the cards, the answer card is on the left and the problem is on the right side of the domino. My one suggestion before copying and cutting the dominos is to randomly write letters on the left or right side of the dominos. That way you don't have to check problems, you can just right down the alpha order the cards are suppose to be in. I usually don't have them spell anything because then the kids just figure out what it says and not the letters. I would have put the letters on the cards myself, but whenever I type the extra stuff in the tables, it messed up the cards and they look funny. So I thought it would be easier for the buyer just to put the letters on the puzzle.

As for using this in high school. I have only used it in high school. And I use dominos all the time and the kids really like it. The first time there are questions on how it works, but after they figure it out they really like it.

I agree that a powerpoint could be good to go with it. I never had thought about it because I don't use powerpoints.

Hope this helps. If not, please let me know and I will be happy to explain it again or help with anything. If you can't ask me another question (I am not too familiar with this website). You can send me an e-mail at lexierazor@gmail.com.

Thanks again!

Buyer re: Order of Operations Practice Cards

Lexie, I'm looking at the instructions for the Order of Operations Review Cards.My question is about your description that kids "get up and move around"? I'm thinking that there must be something I'm missing. Are the cards distributed some way? It sounds like fun.

Lexie (TpT Seller)

Sorry that it took me awhile to get back to your question. I have been traveling and have not had access to the internet but by using my phone...which does not allow me to see my Q & A page.

What I did for this activity, is I made 2 copies of the problems onto card stock paper. I can't remember if the problems are numbered, but if they are not, I suggest hand writing numbers or letters in the corners so it will be easier for the kids to know what they have done and still need to do. Plus, it will be easier for you to grade.

Once I hand each student a card, they work out the problem on a peice of paper (that will be turned in), and have to get up and get the next card they want to use. I usually have about 10 extra at the front table, so students that are a little shy will just keep going up there instead of working with neighbors. Usually though, by the end of the activity, the students are working together and helping each other with cards. But, I still suggest circling the classroom to help and assure that they are not just copying. Of course, let them know that you will accept just answers, that they must show their work!

HOpe that helps :)

Amanda H. re: Circles, Quadratics, & Conic Systems Stations with Key

I purchased the file and when I openned it, it was only stations 1,3 and 5. Is it missing 2 and 4?

Lexie (TpT Seller)

First, I want to appologize that it took me so long to get back to you. I was traveling and my phone wouldn't let me get to this webpage to respond to you. I looked at the activity, and realized that it is a typo. There are only suppose to be the three stations, I just numbered them wrong. Change the numbers to 2 & 3, and it will be fixed! When I did this activity, I copied the stations and had 2 sets of them, that way there were still enough stations so that the students worked in smaller groups. hope that helps! Let me know if you need anything else.

Buyer re: I have who has game for Polygons

I bought the I have Who has game. I understand how to cut the pieces, but how do you play the game? Does just two people match or is it a circle kind of thing?

Lexie (TpT Seller)

Usually you pass out the pieces throughout the class. you pick one person to read their card. For example (don't think it is a card, making it up right now)..."I have a square, who has a polygon with 5 sides?" the person who has pentagon, will read their card, "I have a pentagon, who has a the sum of interior angles of an octagon?" and so forth. It takes them a while to get used to the concept of listening to their classmates. Usually after a full round, they understand it and you can mix the cards up and have them do it again. Sometimes you will have to give students more than one card...depending on your class size.

Hope that helps, let me know if you have any other questions.

Buyer re: Investigating Points, Lines, and Planes Activity

I downloaded the "Investigating Points, Lines, and Planes" Activity and didn't see any specific instructions regarding the yarn, index cards, tape, etc. How many of each to each group? Is there anything written on the index cards, etc? Thanks!

Lexie (TpT Seller)

Well what I usually do is have the students get into groups of 2 or 3...more than 3 they get distracted and don't work as well together. Then I hand them the worksheet and tell them that they need to make a 3-D model of the statement. I explain to them that the notecards represent planes (and that they go on forever...even past the notecard itself), the string represents a line (I also give them scissors to cut the string if they need to), and the tape is to help them keep everything together. Once they have a model done, I initial one box and let them know that now they can draw the model. If they draw the model 1st, a lot of times they get it wrong. Also, for the 1st 5 to 10 minutes I don't help at all. I just say yes or no. It gets them a little fustrated, but I have found that they learn better that way at first. The fun one is when they get to the line intersects a plane...make sure you make them have the yarn actually go through the center of the plane. A lot of times they will try to hold it beside the plane or above the plane. By making the whole, it helps them remember that it intesects at a point.

Hope this info was helpful...please write back if I didn't mention anything. I would do the activity yourself first, then do it with the kids.

Thanks for buying...if you like the activity, please give me a rating! LExie

Laura Bornhuetter (TpT Seller) re: Distributing & Combining Like Terms Dominos

I purchased this and I was wondering if your directions were correct. Do you really only cut around the entire problem set and down the middle, solid black line, only?

Thanks.

lbornhuetter@yahoo.com

Thanks.

lbornhuetter@yahoo.com

Lexie (TpT Seller)

You cut around the outside, the horizontal lines, and the MIDDLE vertical line. The dominos are set up so that the answer is on the left side and the problem is on the right side. the first card says, "start" and on the right side of it is the problem they do. Once they do the problem and find their answer, they place beside it and do the new problem on the right. Hope that helps...let me know if you have any more questions

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have over 13 years experience teaching high school math. I started my career teaching in Quincy, Florida for 2 years. After that I moved to Charlotte, North Carolina for 3 years. I tried it back home where I grew up in Juneau, Alaska for 2 years. After leaving Alaska, I moved back to Winston-Salem, North Carolina, where I taught for 4 years and I was the department chair for the last 3 years. I taught in Clarksville, TN for 2 years and was a Level 5 teacher my final year there. I am currently in Juneau, AK working on my Masters in Mathematics Education, K - 8. I am not currently teaching, but I am still working with youth at a residential youth facility.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Each school that I have taught in has been considered a "low performing" school and I have always worked with students that come in lacking prior knowledge and the motivation to be successful. I create and use a lot of activities and games that help keep my students engaged. A co-worker of mine calls me, "The Game Queen."

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I was a Level 5 teacher for the 2011-2012 in Tennessee, with some of the highest scores in Algebra 2 for the school district (which included my inclusion class)

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I graduated from Juneau-Douglas High School in 1994. I attended Florida State University and earned my Bachelors degree in December 2008 for Curriculum and Instruction: Mathematics Education (6-12). I am currently working on my masters from the University of Alaska Southeast in Mathematics Education, K - 8.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I love teaching and I have always been able to make connections with my students and peer teachers. I hope that you enjoy my activities, worksheets, tests, and anything else.
