Hi, I bought your CRCT review unit, can you tell me how to use the tic, tac, toe game? Also, is there music associated with the price is right or hollywood squares?
Thanks!!

Making Math Meaningful
Making Math Meaningful  (TpT Seller)
I don't have music with the games. For the tic tac toe game, I divide my students into pairs. (All students have a laptop at my school.) The student picks a square and has to answer all three problems correctly in order to type in their x or o into the box.
If your kids don't have laptops, you could have that as a station and divide the group into two teams. They could either answer all three questions in order to claim the box or they could play with level one questions for one game, clear the board and play again for level two questions, and clear the board again to play with the level three questions.

Maybe this is a silly question but, I have beat my self up trying to find out how you got the answer to this warm up question:

A shirt is on sale for 20% off. The sale price is $28, what was the original price?

Could you please explain with some detail/formula you used.
Thanks in advance.
March 13, 2014 Report inappropriate comment
Making Math Meaningful
Making Math Meaningful  (TpT Seller)
.80n = 28 because if it is 20% off, then you will pay 80% of the original price. When you divide both sides of the equation by .80, your answer will be the original price of $35.

Buyer re: 7th Grade Math Common Core CRCT Review
Good Morning,
I was just assigned to teach 7th Grade Math this year and we will be implementing the Common Core Standards. Would I be better off with your Complete Unit - 7th Grade Math Common Core Review for Standardized Test, or the Everything you need to differentiate.

I wanted to make sure that if I bought both they are not duplicate material. Also, is your 7th Grade Math Common Core Aligned Homework included in the Everything you need to Differentiate bundle?

Thanks!

Hi,
Thank you for asking. The zip file "Everything you need..." has all of the documents in the "Complete Unit Review" and much more...warm ups for the entire year, vocabulary for each unit, study guides for each unit, and more differentiation games and options.

If you will send me your email address, I will send you the homework and assessments for the year in place of the warm ups you accidentally bought in addition to the differentiated 7th grade math. I do not have a formative for fractions since fractions are taught in lower grades.

No. If you pull up the power point and play the slide show. The answers appear only once you have allowed the students to work the problems and you click the mouse. The answers do not show up until you decide that they do.

Making Math Meaningful  (TpT Seller)
This is a task to practice operations with integers in an engaging way. The fun part is trying to figure out how to translate the text language into grammatically correct sentences and then using the assigned values for the letters to come up with the sum of each word. The final part is finding the sum of the entire note. On the second part, there is another note to translate, find the sum of each word, but on that part the students find the product of the words.
I hope this helps. Let me know if you have more questions.

When the team picks a box (with the person in it), you click on the person. A problem comes up which they have to solve. When they solve it, click on the screen and the answer pops up. Click on the house and it takes you back to the home page. If they got it right, you put an x or 0 in that black box on the tic tac toe board. Also, you keep up with the number of x and 0's on the left to show how many turns it took to get three in a row.

With smaller classes, I put it up on the smartboard, divide the class into two teams, and let the team captains choose the box they want to try to solve for their x or o.
