I just found this, but wish I had found it at the beginning of the year. I am using parts for review for CRCT. My students have loved the discussion cards, which I used as stations first then we had a group discussion. I cannot wait to start the year off with your activities. Thank you for taking the time to put together a wonderful and useful product.

At first, I was intriqued by the well-organized clue word chart, but I became more excited when I downloaded and saw that the second page covers writing expressions from words in a unique graphic organizer. Great tool!

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:

Buyer re: Are You Smarter than the Standardized Test?

Is this aligned to the common core?

Buyer re: Tic Tac Toe Integer Word Problems (27 problems)

Can I use this for any subject and use my own questions or is this only specifically to review integers?

Lisa L.

Hello!

I am trying to use the stations and do not see and answer key. I know you said they were included. Are they in there and I am not looking in the right place?

I bought the differentiated instruction for 7th grade.

Thanks!

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!!

Thanks!!

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.

Buyer re: Differentiated Data Unit - 7th Grade Common Core Aligned

Does this address all the 7.SP standards?

Richard N.

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.

Thanks in advance.

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.

Cindy E.

I purchased the mystery and I was wondering how you give the students the math problems? I'm assuming I keep original because the answers and the clues are on there...thanks

Making Math Meaningful (TpT Seller)

I make a copy and cut apart to distribute...without answers for them.

Buyer re: 7th Grade Math Common Core Aligned Warm Ups for the Year

The answers show up with the warm up and I don't want the students to see the answers. Is there a solution for this?

My email address is mcdonaldp@duvalschools.org.

My email address is mcdonaldp@duvalschools.org.

Making Math Meaningful (TpT Seller)

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.

Megan Montgomery (TpT Seller) re: Equations Project

Do you happen to have any more example pictures. I purchased this and would like to do it with my 8th graders, but I am a brand new math teacher and a little more examples would even help me explain it better. They are a little hard to see. Thank you,

Megan

Nancy R. re: Tic Tac Toe Integer Word Problems (27 problems)

I like the type and level of questions! Please tell me how to mark the game as I go. I understand that the student needs to answer all three questions to get a mark, but then what??? thanks, Nancy

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.

MJ McCance (TpT Seller) re: EVERYTHING you need to differentiate 7th grade math - common core aligned

Oops! I accidentally purchased both. Also, I noticed that there is no formative assessment for fractions in unit 1. Do you have one created?

Making Math Meaningful (TpT Seller)

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.

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

Thank You

Making Math Meaningful (TpT Seller)

There is not a printable version. You can edit it. If you delete the answers on each slide, you can print it out for handouts.

Buyer

Hey. I purchased the 7th grade common core warm ups from you last week. Is there a copy that does not have the answers?

Making Math Meaningful (TpT Seller)

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.

Are the warm-ups within this product the same as the warm-ups that you have listed separately?

Patti J. re: Direct and Inverse Word Problems

There is an error on 'Telling the story...' in the box. Should say 'x represents # of people' and 'y represents the #slices each receive'. Also appears on your 'download sample'.

Making Math Meaningful (TpT Seller)

Thank you so much for letting me know. I have fixed it and you can now download the product again. I am so sorry.

Dawn Minkoff (TpT Seller)

Has this been revised since April 19th. If so will I be able to get the revised version without paying again?

Making Math Meaningful (TpT Seller)

I am not sure when I revised the document, but if you go to your "my purchases", you can download it again...

Dawn Burdick (TpT Seller)

I purchased Stations - Proportions, percents,.... and it lists 16 pages. When I downloaded I only get 14 pages. Station 8 that is shown in the picture (that I really want) is not included. ????

Making Math Meaningful (TpT Seller)

I am SOOOOOO sorry about the mixup! I had revised the stations and somehow that station got left off. I have fixed it now. Station 8 is now included. Please download the file again.

Dawn Minkoff (TpT Seller)

Hi, I just purchased your Jayden's Rescue unit and was wondering if you have an answer key for the quizzes and test that you could forward to me. I would be so appreciative.

Making Math Meaningful (TpT Seller)

Yes. I have retyped the tests, included answer keys, and included printable sheets for each project as buyer's have requested. Please download your new copy of the unit. Thank you.

Is this an examview test? Is it editable to make a practice test?

Buyer re: Buying a Car Project - Systems of Equations

Hi!

Would you consider refunding $2.50 for purchase I just made. I teach special ed and this is way too advanced for what I was going for. I'm sorry for any inconvenience!

livelaughlove213 (TpT Seller) re: Tic Tac Toe Integer Word Problems (27 problems)

Can you give me an example of a question in the game? I am trying to see if the word problems you used fit into my curriculum :) Thanks!

Making Math Meaningful (TpT Seller)

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

Thank you

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.

Carey Prantalos (TpT Seller) re: Measures of Center Common Core Unit with mean absolute deviation and box plots

Is there a way to see a preview of the information you have on mean absolute deviation? I'm looking for great resources and I like what you've put together, but I'd love to see the MAD first. Thanks so much!

Making Math Meaningful (TpT Seller)

I just uploaded a few thumbnails that shows what is in the power point.

Making Math Meaningful (TpT Seller)

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.

Buyer

Can you please explain what I type into the boxes and how I maneuver and work the game? I have tried playing with it...but I am lost. Thanks.

Buyer re: Tic Tac Toe Expressions

I really like the game. Can you explain how to play? How should/do I use it with the class? Thanks

Making Math Meaningful (TpT Seller)

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!
