Love Scavenger Hunts for Test Review days!

April 17, 2014

Vicki Hines (TpT Seller)

My students love scavenger hunts and relays. I like the PowerPoint reviews! But, they are all great to review for a test! Hope this one works well for you.

The students and I loved this!

Fun activity, and thank you for the review worksheet. It will be a nice homework sheet.

Thank you for taking time to rate this item. My district likes to "keep the students working from bell to bell", so I had them the homework sheet as they turn in their scavenger hunt. I'm glad you can use it also.

Great time saver! Lots of practice problems!

I'm glad it was a success in your class! My students like scavenger hunts also. That's why I have so many of them.

Wendy Pfaff (TpT Seller)

I am looking forward to using this with my Algebra 3 students. Any suggestions on how to incorporate Smart Notebook clickers?

April 4, 2014

Vicki Hines (TpT Seller)

Hi Wendy,

I have never used Smart Notebook clickers, but I have used Turning Point clickers. What I did was insert a chart, using the TP software, on the answer slide. The students then used their clickers to enter their answers, and the chart showed the percentage of each answer given. (answers appeared, students entered their choice, polling closed, then correct answer was shown.) I had this on all of my reviews because it allowed me to see which areas were strong, and which needed more review. I could explain any question that had a large amount of incorrect answers.

Again, I don't know how your clickers work, but it seems like you could do something similar. Hope that helps.

If you want your students moving around, scavenger hunts are just what you are looking for! I have them for just about every topic in Algebra 1. Hope your kids enjoy them!

Oh no! I just downloaded it and it opened right up. It was made with Office 2007. Maybe if you have an older version...?? I don't know. Maybe I can email it to you. I am so sorry for this problem.

Download my "Decoding Baseball Teams" also. (It's free.) I use it as a critical thinking exercise in math, but it works great as an English lesson with synonyms as well. Find it at: http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Decoding-Baseball-Teams-251335

Great thanks! What did your students do when it was not their turn?

January 7, 2014

Vicki Hines (TpT Seller)

Great question! Students can get help from the person in front of them, or in back of them, so that keeps some of them busy. After they have worked with their first relay, they know what's happening, so I start handing out two or three or all of the relays at the same time! That drives them crazy trying to keep up, and it's a lot more fun! :)

Buyer

Answer key is incorrect spent several minutes correcting and double checking for other errors. For $3.50 at least the answers should be correct. Avoid this product #6 correct answer is (1,-7) #A correct answer should be (-5,-2). Since the students are suppose to match solutions this created confusion.

January 7, 2014

Vicki Hines (TpT Seller)

The correct answer for #6 is (-5, -2), which matches #A. I did transpose the numbers on the answer key. Thanks for drawing that to my attention. But, since the answer for #6 and #A ARE the same, then students would have matching answers and it would not create any problems for them.

Krys (TpT Seller)

Says that the compressed file is empty. I used the correct file to extract the files and it still says that it is empty.

I emailed you a copy to your school address in October, and another to your gmail address today. Hopefully you can get this powerpoint. I included a partner problem worksheet for your use as well. Please let me know if you still can't get the file.

I hope it helped explain the similarities and differences of the two angle measures. My students said that it really helped them to "see" the visual examples in that lesson. (and they laugh at my self-drawn unit circles when I put them on the board! LOL)

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:

Ritish S.

Hi, I just went through the Polynomials Scavenger Hunt activity and I believe there are 3 errors. The answers that are listed on cards A,B, & C are not the same as what I arrived to. I could be wrong...but I went through them a few times. I believe the correct answers should be:

A=-4x-5

B= 10x-8y

C=-x(cubed) + 5x(squared)-6x-5.

Please let me know if I am right or wrong....thanks!

Carrie

A=-4x-5

B= 10x-8y

C=-x(cubed) + 5x(squared)-6x-5.

Please let me know if I am right or wrong....thanks!

Carrie

Vicki Hines (TpT Seller)

OMG! You are correct! I am so sorry! I changed some problems, but didn't change the answers. I am uploading a new file with the corrections. Thank you so very much for letting me know. It would have been so frustrating to use with those incorrect answers. You are a lifesaver!

Please let me know if you are able to download the new file without charge. (I don't want you to have to pay again.) If not, I can send it to you if you give me your email address.

Vicki

PS. The review worksheet had two of those same errors. The third one had the original problem still on it, so the original answer was correct. Again, I am so embarrassed and so sorry! Thank you again for pointing this out.

Jill W. re: Alg 1 -- Solving Quadratic Equations (easy) RELAY

Do you have a preview available? I have not yet purchased your products, so I wanted to see a preview before making a purchase. Please advise. Thank you.

Vicki Hines (TpT Seller)

No, I don't have a preview. Sorry. Basically it is sets of six problems in a column that students work as a team. Relays are actually my student's favorite. But, if you don't want to purchase without a preview, I understand. Have a great day!

I downloaded this product and there are no files when I go download the zip file. I had teacherspayteachers send it to me through an email, but it still did not work. Is there any way you could email it to me at kirsten.collins@carlisle.kyschools.us?

Kirsten,

I am sorry that I did not see this sooner. I did not know this section existed. I sent you an email. Please let me know if you still have problems.

Buyer re: Alg 1 -- Multiplication of Polynomials

Hello Vicki -

Do the answers, along with the work, appear with the problem right away or do they "fly in"? I would prefer having pause time to discuss the problem with the students first. Also, how many slides and/or problems are there? Thank you!

Karen

Vicki Hines (TpT Seller)

Sorry I did not see this sooner. On all of my PowerPoint lessons, the work and the answers do not appear until you click the mouse. I do not have that particular lesson on this computer, but each of my lessons are between 11 and 15 slides.

Akida M. re: Alg 1 -- Solving Inequalities

I bought your lesson on solving inequalities, but my computer says there are no files in the zip file. I don't know what to do next...is there a password of some sort? Any help you can provide would be much appreciated.

There is no password. I am uploading the file again. If they want to charge you to download it again, let me know and I will send you a copy. Just leave me an email address so I can get it touch with you. So sorry!

Algebra4All (TpT Seller) re: Alg 1 -- Do Vampires Really Exist? (Exponents & Proof by Contradiction"

I am intrigued by your title. However, I cannot tell by the description if this would fit in with my functions unit or not. I see the list of standards, but I am not sure exactly what students would be doing in this activity. Can you load it with thumbnails?

Vicki Hines (TpT Seller)

Obviously you probably wanted this around the Halloween season. (that's when I always used it) The lesson is basically to teach students how to use a spreadsheet, and all the functions that go with that. It also allows them to see what "proof by contradiction" means as they prove that vampires could not exist. Students do develop a formula to "fit the function" but I seriously don't think I would use it thinking it was an awesome lesson for a unit on functions.

I do apologize for not answering sooner. I did not know that this area existed. (I'm new to TpT) I had often wondered how I could get in touch with my buyers to ask them questions (I still don't know that), and how buyers could let me know how things were going with the lessons.

Hope that answered your question. (although I doubt that you really cared about an answer at this point in time!) LOL
