Caryn  (TpT Seller) re: Angle Relationships using Algebra
Hi, I have some questions about this activity. Does it come with a key. How pages does it come with (sound like 4) When I looked at your preview, I noticed that the student don't have enough info to complete it. Do they know that Angles 1 and 2 are complements or that the 2 lines are perpendicular or are they just suppose to assume that since it looks like a right angle it is one?

Thanks
Caryn

Hi Caryn,
I just uploaded a new copy. It now includes an answer key and has 9 pages (one is just a title page for the key). I also added boxes to show that the lines are indeed perpendicular (no assuming! :-) ). I hope this helps. This is one of my older products, so I will be systematically refreshing them to include answer keys. Thanks for the information and questions.

Thank you for making this. I was looking for an engaging activity to help my students learn how to use the various quadratic solving methods and this looks great. Thank you!

THERESA SIMMONS  (TpT Seller)
Thank you so much! It's a great activity to allow kids the independence to practice as well as give them time to discuss and ponder the concepts. I love the activity too! Thanks for your purchase and I hope you find more resources at my store that suit your needs. If you are interested in other resources that you don't find here, let me know and I'll see if I can create some.

THERESA SIMMONS  (TpT Seller)
No problem. I saw another very small error in another item I bought but I have to go back through them to see where it was. I think it was on the Angles and Algebra one. I'll let you know. I'm so thankful for your products. Because of you I have to plan less for my exam review week! Yippee! :-)

Scipi  (TpT Seller) re: Pascal's Triangle Connections Review Organizer
I saw your store on the home page of Teachers Pay Teachers; so, I thought I would look at your freebie. I left you a rating. Check the first question under DIE as I believe the word "many is omitted.

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, unless you want your products revised (I do for my tests) save everything in a PDF format as it is harder to change.

Since you also teach math, Iâ€™d appreciate your input on one of my freebies listed below.

m now your 9th follower, and hope you will reciprocate at my store as well. http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/SciPi/Products

Check out the Sellers Forum under Communication on your dashboard page. There are tons of ideas and helpful suggestions given by TPT veterans. The best of luck as you sell on TPT!

THERESA SIMMONS  (TpT Seller)
Thank you so much! It was one of my first items posted, so I have already instituted some of those changes on my other items. I plan on taking time this summer to review all of my items and post more. I do appreciate the feedback. It really helps alot. I will visit your store soon! I have young kids and don't often have time to keep up, but I plan on spending more time on it so I can yield more results.

Susan Catelli re: Custom Hand Made Bulletin Board: School Acronym
Theresa,
I love your School Acronym bulletin board, but I want to use it on my hall bulletin board and the one you offer would be too small. Are you able to make it any bigger, or give me suggestions what to put around the rest of the bulletin board? My board is 9' long by 3' wide!!
Thank you, Susan Catelli
June 24, 2011
THERESA SIMMONS  (TpT Seller)
Wow, only 3 feet wide is pretty slim. The only thing I can think of is to have the letters to SCHOOL spaced in the middle of the board, horizontally. Then, with something akin to conversation bubbles, put the other words/characteristics for each letter. Then you could place random cutouts of school buildings, school buses, and/or apples around the empty spaces as fillers. If you email me directly at theresa_simmons@hotmail.com I can send you a rough idea of what I explained for more clarity.

Theresa,
I loved your pre-made bulletin board. I fact, I'll be ordering it. I know you teach high school, but do you do bulletin boards for the elementary level? I've taught for 23 years and I hated doing bulletin boards as a new teacher, and I still hate doing them!! I prefer "seasonal" things with a writing assignment or a "project" that goes with it. They are 4th graders, but very low. We go through 4 themes of a program called L.E.A.D.S. The 1st theme is Immigration,o the bulletin board can simply go along with the season of the year. Would you be interested in working on bulletin boards at this level? Thank you, Susan Catelli - hartsusan@optonline.net
June 10, 2011
THERESA SIMMONS  (TpT Seller)
Thanks you very much!! I am totally open to the idea! If you send me more information about the program, the themes and other pertinent info, I'd be more than happy to sketch some ideas and create them for you. Now is a good time to get starting thinking about it so I can use the summer to plan, create and get it to you by Sept.

THERESA SIMMONS  (TpT Seller)
I only have one for sale. Did you need 25 of them? It's pretty light so I"m going to guess about \$4. I can check on Monday and let you know then if you are still interested.
