This was a great success among my students. They loved working through this. We added a little competition twist to it by awarding extra points to the first three partner-teams that finished.

April 6, 2014

Kim D.

Very nice! Its difficult to find "fun" activities for topics like this! I cut out the solution QR codes and put them on one sheet of paper at the front of the classroom - I wanted them to only have access to the hints!

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:

Buyer

Are you developing an April calc problem of the day? I was going to download the March & begin next week... But -I decided I would check if you have an April set developed first?

Thank you - Awesome work!

Thank you - Awesome work!

Teaching High School Math (TpT Seller)

Hi, I am sorry, I do not have an April version yet, but I will get to work on it. We have had spring break and I have been getting a couple of other things finished up. Please check back for the April version soon!

Clever Zombie (TpT Seller)

Hi, thank you for making up these activities, they are great! I noticed some of the sellers include a version for students that are absent. I purchased the Special Right Triangles with QR codes activity & posted them all over my classroom. The kids loved it! It would be AWESOME if you included a one page copy with all of the problems for students that did not get to participate in the walk around.

Math is Fun (TpT Seller) re: Fraction Super Secret Number Game

I love the game idea! I teach fifth grade and wanted to make sure that the fraction work would not be too difficult.

Teaching High School Math (TpT Seller)

Students need to know how to get a common denominator, work with improper fractions, and mixed numbers. I can't speak for your specific class, but if you look in the comments and ratings section, someone did mention that they used this in 5th grade successfully. Thanks for asking!

Lucinda Griswold (TpT Seller)

On the Geometry Circle Arcs and Angle Big Circle Problem - I think Big Circle Number Two , question #6, I believe angle GFA is 35 degrees. Please double check my work.

Teaching High School Math (TpT Seller)

You are correct - I am re-uploading the answer key now. Thank you for pointing that out!

Jean Adams (TpT Seller) re: Calculus Problem of the Day for January (with optional QR Codes)

The #12 question for January asked about how far an object traveled in the first two seconds given the position function. We took total distance as absolute value of velocity, or noticed that position changed where x=1. So x(1)-x(0) = 5/3 and (x(2) - x(1) = 7/3 to give total distance 4. of abs of v(t) from x=0 to x=2 is 4. Not sure how you have 20/3.

Also a typo on question #13 should be y = 4x+2 not y=4x +4. Please verify I'm not making some careless mistake myself. Thanks....We love your products.

Teaching High School Math (TpT Seller)

Hi Jean - I believe both of these problems are now fixed. Thanks again for letting me know. Not sure where I got 20/3 out of that!!! I appreciate you using my calculus materials :)

Surfer Kids Clip Art (TpT Seller)

Brianne (TpT Seller) re: Geometry Task Cards with QR Codes Bundle

When will you be adding more cards? I cannot wait to see what you come up with for similar triangles and circles.

Surfer Kids Clip Art (TpT Seller)

Great Jennifer... thank you. Is there anything specific you are looking for at this stage?

Teaching High School Math (TpT Seller)

Hi, well I'm not sure specifically, but I would like some images I can use in a high school math class. Like I said, I would want a kid with a graphing calculator. Maybe a kid sitting at a computer. How about a kid with an iPad? Also, maybe a kid with a compass, protractor, etc???

Surfer Kids Clip Art (TpT Seller)

Hi there... I've seen your request in the forum for a kid with a graphing calculator and also I assume that their are a need for more high school type of clip art. I'll really love to give it a try... If you could may be visit my store to see my style. You can also look at my science set and the style I've used there to cater more for high school kids. My challenge at this stage is to find proper guidance on what to do because of topics and needs for mid school and high school children. Would you may be interested to give something like this a go? If you put through a request, I could give it a go and post it in my store for general purchase?

The answer key is included when you purchase the product. I just tried downloading it myself and I can see it, it is at the very end.

Buyer re: Geometry Parallel Lines Super Secret Number Puzzle

Hi Jen,

Before I buy this... Is this going to be included in the SSN bundle?

Before I buy this... Is this going to be included in the SSN bundle?

Teaching High School Math (TpT Seller)

It will be included in a Geometry SSN eventually, but I am not ready to make one quite yet as I don't have enough Geometry puzzles. If you buy it now, I can set up a special price for you when I make the bundle. Thanks!

Stephanie Gordon (TpT Seller)

I have activities that I would like to put qr codes with. Is there a program that allows you to create the answers so they can be read by a scan reader?

Teaching High School Math (TpT Seller)

I use the website http://qrcode.kaywa.com to create my qr codes. But, there are many websites out there that will create the codes for you. Good luck!

Carey Prantalos (TpT Seller)

Hi Jennifer. I downloaded the task cards for percent applications. I was wondering if you have an editable version of it. I wanted to change a few of them to include a few more challenging ones.

Teaching High School Math (TpT Seller)

I'm sorry, but I don't have an editable version of the file. The clipart is copyrighted, so I can't provide an editable version - I'm sorry about that.

Buyer re: Super Secret Pre Algebra Puzzles

Thank you for your quick response! I get it now. (I almost bought the latest SS Puzzle because I love them so, but then remembered I purchased the bundle.) Love your products!

Teaching High School Math (TpT Seller)

You are welcome...did you have any more requests for topics for mazes?

Buyer re: Super Secret Pre Algebra Puzzles

Hi Jennifer. How do I get the updates on this bundle? When I download the bundle, it shows nine products. But in your product description, it now shows 11. Thanks for your help!

Teaching High School Math (TpT Seller)

Hi, in order to get the updates, you can re-download from your purchased products page. Just so you know, there are actually 9 files, but 11 puzzles - the working with integers and solving equations puzzle have two puzzles in each file. Thanks for asking and I hope you are enjoying them!

Buyer re: Super Secret Pre Algebra Puzzles

Hi Jennifer,

Is everything in this bundle new? (I have many of your products - I just don't want to purchase something twice...)

Is everything in this bundle new? (I have many of your products - I just don't want to purchase something twice...)

Teaching High School Math (TpT Seller)

Yes, everything is new - it only has super secret puzzles - no mazes. I appreciate your support!!! And...I will be adding more super secret puzzles to it - I have two almost ready!

Live Love Math (TpT Seller)

LOVE the super secret number activities...but I teach more of a pre-algebra class (8th grade math in TX)...do you have any plans to make any of these for the pre-algrebra skills? I would buy them in a heartbeat!!

Follower #19 here! Love the puzzles you have posted! What creative ideas and a great way to review prior to break!

Julie L. re: Algebra Writing Equations of Lines - Competency Test

I like your concept. I have a question. Do you make them take each version until they get a 10 / 10 or do they take a random version until they get a 10 / 10?

Teaching High School Math (TpT Seller)

Hi, Thank you for your interest in my product and for your question. I have them take a random version of the test until they get a 10/10. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance. Jennifer

dd some clipart to add color or just color some of your font. I always do, even on tests.) For some reason buyers like color on the original even though they may copy your product in black and white.

Use the footer to put the copyright symbol, your name and date of creation on EVERY page. Here is how you do that. Use the insert and go to the right. You should see symbols there.
