I am considering your "Everything to Differentiate 7th Grade Math", does it include the other files that are individual? Does it also include your CRCT Review that you said you used for your students to exceed? I am moving from 10th grade math to 7th grade to have the same schedule as my son, so I have no materials!

Hi,
This zip file includes a checklist of concepts, warm ups for the year, a formative test for each unit with some electronic games, stations, or activities to use for differentiation. It does not include the homework, board games, or assessments for the year. If you are starting over, I recommend this along with the homework, board games, and assessments. If you purchase all of these files, send me your email address, since you are starting over, and I will send you extras for free:)

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.

When you play the power point, the answers should pop in after students finish as you click. If you want to make a copy, just delete the answers and copy.

Buyer re: 7th Grade Math Common Core Aligned Homework for the Year
Hi! This is my first year teaching 7th grade math and I am thinking of using this as a weekly homework assignment. When I download this will there be a printable version that I can handout to students or only the power point slides? Also, will I be able to edit it? I would like to have several of the questions on one page.

Thank You

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.

The temperature dropped 12ºF in 8 hours.
If the final temperature was -7ºF,
what was the starting temperature?

A small business reported a net loss of
$86,000 in 2004 and a net profit of $32,000
in 2005. How much did the company's
profits change from 2004 to 2005?

Buyer re: Passing Notes (Integer Operations)
Can you tell me what level this task is? Is it better suited for spec ed, gen ed or will it be rigorous enough for gifted and talented? Also does it go into multiplying and dividing integers as well or just adding and subtracting?

Thank you
October 4, 2012 Report inappropriate comment
Making Math Meaningful
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. All of our kids have to bring laptops to school everyday... so with larger classes, I have partners log onto one laptop and play each other. Thanks!
