QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:
Mathola re: Exponential Functions Matching Game
Would you consider making a matching game that has linear, quadratic, exponential, absolute value, square root and rational all mixed up? I am planning an end of year lesson tying all of these parent functions and their related domains/ranges/translations, etc.
I like your work.
May 19, 2013
Lisa Tilmon  (TpT Seller)
That is a great idea! I'm not sure when "end of year" is for you, but I will bump this to the top of my creations task list. :)
May 19, 2013

Donna Brittain  (TpT Seller) re: Exponential Functions Activity
I am finding that the equation -2^x-2 does not have the correct table and that the graph for the equation 2^x+1 is incorrect. I loved the game and the kids stayed very active with the game. I changed it up. I made color copies of the cards,cut them apart and placed a magnet strip on the back. The students had to match all the equations up with the numerical, the verbal and the graph. They placed them in columns on the board which is magnetic.
May 16, 2013
Lisa Tilmon  (TpT Seller)
Donna, thanks so much for bringing these details to my attention. I appreciate the help. Please stay tuned for an updated version to download this summer. And I love the magnetic sort idea...thanks for sharing!

hollidaya re: Congruent and Similar Figures Clip-a-Match Game
I am not understanding, and I looked on your blog. Do these spin? Do I put the answers on the clothes pin? Do you have a video of you playing this? Thanks.
April 19, 2013
Lisa Tilmon  (TpT Seller)
The circles do not spin. The clothes pins do contain the answers, and the students match the question and answer by clipping the clothes pin to the coordinating problem. I do not have a video, but I can put that in my "to do" list to add to my blog at a later time. For now I can attempt a photo collage to see if that helps. Thanks for asking!

mcanty re: Scientific Notation I Have Who Has Game
Do you play this in small groups? Or as a whole class?
April 18, 2013
Lisa Tilmon  (TpT Seller)
I have done both. Last year I used this activity in my remediation small group, but this year I used as a whole class activity under my document camera. Both options worked well for my intent with each group. Good luck!!

KathleenHaynes re: Parallel Lines Roll an Angle Pair Game
Aside from the obvious valuable and relevant content, this is adorable!!! Using it after spring break to get the kids back in the game!! My questions are: Are both the problem cards and the record sheets needed for the game? Or, are the problem cards just for a larger visual and students are to mark on the record sheets only? Do students playing each other mark on the same card or are they each marking on their own?

Thanks!
Kathleen Haynes
March 23, 2013
Lisa Tilmon  (TpT Seller)
Hi Kathleen,
This will be a fun way to get back in the groove after break! I laminated the big problem cards so my students could use expo markers to mark/label if desired...some did and others opted to just use their record sheet. My students played in pairs with a RallyCoach structure...taking turns one rolled and identified special angle pairs while the other coached with friendly reminders or praise for accuracy. In student pairs, no angle pair could be listed twice so they tried to exhaust all possibilities to avoid losing a turn from no remaining angle pair to list. Hope that helps! Enjoy!

jconnelly1711 re: Fractions, Decimals, and Percents Activity Bundle
I am using conversion island..... a few things are confusing... What is they miss one.. can they go back and connect it later? Are they trying to do it as a team... or indiv. Is there a winner? 1/3 = 33%? is there sup. to be a neg sign in the middle of the board?
March 15, 2013
Lisa Tilmon  (TpT Seller)
I'm sure we could use this page in multiple ways, but I'll share what we did in our classroom. My students worked individually to highlight as many facts as possible. The students with the most accurate facts "wins" the activity. We did allow for going back if they skipped one...meaning they could hop all over the board if your parameters allow. And yes, I rounded to the nearest whole percent. No, there shouldn't be a negative in the center of your page. I printed that page to double check and it printed clean for me. I would encourage you to contact TpT customer support for troubleshooting ideas for printing.
March 15, 2013

rcswitalski re: Exponential Functions Activity
There is an error. On pages 4-7, the equation in the bottom right hand corner does not match the graph nor the verbal.

Love your work!

Ashley Carnathan  (TpT Seller) re: Fractions, Decimals, and Percents Activity Bundle
Do you have the answer key for the conversion island?
January 29, 2013
Lisa Tilmon  (TpT Seller)
I do not have a key, but I will certainly add that to my "to do" list. Be sure to follow my store so you will get an update notice. Thanks!

Brittany Naujok  (TpT Seller) re: Monster Glyph for Learning Styles
I saw that you used a Cricut to cut out your shapes. I don't have one of these, but I have considered getting one. Does it let you cut out multiple shapes or many of the same shape all at once? Also, does it come with the basic shapes you used for your glyphs, or do you have to buy extra cartridges to get those basic geometric shapes? Thanks for your help. Brittany
January 3, 2013
Lisa Tilmon  (TpT Seller)
My Cricut Expressions came with two cartridges; one of which included basic shapes. You set the Cricut to cut the shapes that will fit on your paper...but only one piece at a time. I hope that helps!

You can read more and see a visual on my blog http://www.lisatilmon.blogspot.com/2012/01/congruent-and-similar-figures.html?m=1

I copied on different colors and then laminated one color back-to-back with the other color. That allowed me to use the clips on both sides as well.

Hope that helps!

sandyladams re: Scale Drawings Lesson Plans
I have seen several teachers with the graphics style used in your activities. The graphics are so exciting and fun and I love the fonts used too. Is this a specific program? I am not familiar with this.

meek39 re: Math Centers: Solving Equations Activity Bundle
Are your activities created on a Mac or using Smart-board technology because I do not have either?
December 1, 2012

My products are loaded in .pdf format. You can capture for Smartboard, snapshot for PowerPoint, or print and use in paper form. So you should be set for use regardless of the technology you have available. Hope that helps!

Ashley Carnathan  (TpT Seller) re: Inequalities Go Fish Game
Do the graphs include open and closed circles based on the type of inequality symbol?
I can not tell from the preview.
Thanks
November 16, 2012
Lisa Tilmon  (TpT Seller)
Yes, ma'am. There is a mix of opened and closed circles based on the inequality symbols. My apologies for the preview detail; rest assured the product itself is very visible in that difference. Hope that helps!

torr2504 re: Integer Operations Activity Bundle
do these activities include lesson plans?
April 20, 2012
Lisa Tilmon  (TpT Seller)
The Integer Operations is an activity bundle. While the set includes posters that can be used to help students remember the operation rules, I consider this bundle to be the activities that give students the much needed practice...a support packet to your unit on integers.

abluerose
Hello,
I purchased your properties of circles lesson plans, but found no clear directions on how to use each of the parts of the PDF file. Some, I could figure out. However,I have no idea what the little circles on pages 30-35 or the green circles on pages 57-62 are used for. A brief paragraph or 2 for each activity would be incredibly helpful. I was so excited to start implementing some of the activities (they look incredible), but am currently unable to. HELP.
March 20, 2012
Lisa Tilmon  (TpT Seller)
Certainly. I updated the .pdf file and sent a notice to buyers. But for a quick remedy...pages 30-35 and 57-62 contain cooperative learning practice cards. My students each have one card and a clipboard with scratch paper. They mix around the room to form pairs and complete practice problems together. Then they trade cards and find new partners to repeat the process. I hope that helps! Let me know if you have more questions.
March 23, 2012

The Enlightened Elephant  (TpT Seller) re: Inequalities Go Fish Game
I love this activity...would you consider creating one without a St. Patrick's day theme? Also, how many inequality question cards are there?
March 14, 2012
Lisa Tilmon  (TpT Seller)
Absolutely! Would you prefer a particular theme, color only, or blackline? There are 30 inequality sets of 4 matches...problem, solution, graph, and interval notation solution.

Scipi  (TpT Seller)
I saw your product featured in the Sunday TPT Newsletter; so, I thought I would look at your freebie. I absolutely love it. It is something I can use, even on the college level.

I have just a few suggestions that might help you to better market your products. First, add a second page which is a directions or suggestions page. List several ways you use this product in your classroom. Even though I know how to use the cards, never assume that a buyer knows how, why, or when to use your product. Use the footer to put the copyright symbol, your name and date of creation on EVERY page. Items, especially free ones, have been "stolen" from TPT and posted on other sites to be sold. You have to protect all of your creations. Also, number your pages. Finally, buyers like color; so, you might think about that for the cards.

Since you are a math person, Iâ€™d appreciate your input on my freebie listed below. It's a test over fractions.

I am now your 42nd follower, and hope you will reciprocate at my store as well. http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/SciPi/Products

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

This is lucky year #13 for me. I taught 10 years of high school math and then moved down to 7th and 8th grade! I am convinced junior high is the best kept secret! Shhh...don't tell. :)

MY TEACHING STYLE

My classroom is filled with Kagan structures to actively engage students in their learning.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Teacher of the Year (2000)

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I currently teach math at Washington Junior High School in Bentonville, AR. I'm still new to middle-level education, but the challenge is a perfect fit. I'm hooked on building better students...

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I have lived in Northwest Arkansas for 26 years. My husband and I have two beautiful daughters. Chuck works for Wal-Mart, and we attend First Baptist Church of Bentonville. It was my honor to be a classroom teacher at Bentonville High School for ten years; however, I resigned my teaching position in 2004 to stay home and spoil my family. I recently returned to teaching after five years of retirement and am loving every second of creating a positive learning environment.
