Over 30 worksheets! If you are searching for a source of linear equations for your students, this is the comprehensive source. Students will begin with one step equations and proceed through subsequent incremental levels until they are solving multi-step problems (involving distribution and combining like terms) with success. Each level begins with positive whole number solutions before introducing negative and fractional solutions. Equations involving addition, subtraction, multiplication, and

Students will love designing, building, and battling these inexpensive robotic arms as they learn about the principles of hydraulics. The simple instructions make this an ideal S.T.E.M. maker lab for eager engineers in grades five through eight. Most of the simple and easily accessible materials can be reused year after year to keep the cost low. Complete illustrations make the construction process simple, but students can modify and improve the designs if they wish.

4 out of 3 students struggle with fractions! The other 50% don't know their multiplication facts. Now you can solve both problems easily with the classroom-proven approach used by hundreds of teachers throughout the U.S.My own struggling 8th graders memorized their times tables and learned to do all four fraction operations, simplify their answers, and even solve proportions effortlessly.This is my far my most popular workshop now available in a simple yet comprehensive handout.

In this powerfully engaging activity students of all skill levels will study standard and nonstandard tangrams to determine the values of the pieces. Students will compare the pieces to see how they relate to one another as fractions, decimals, percent, and areas. They will also develop geometric vocabulary and form an understanding of congruence and similarity. The best part is that the entire process will lead them seamlessly into algebraic thinking as they navigate among the pieces and their

Your students will love designing, building, and testing these inexpensive and creative robots that wiggle their way across their desks. They can compete with them in races and battles and even use them to draw artistic patterns. Using materials purchased from discount stores, each robot can be built and rebuilt for less than $2.00.

Do you want engaging ways to create cooperative teams for S.T.E.M. lessons, project-based learning, or just to make your classroom run more smoothly? Here are four fun and functional ways to create an environment of cooperation. In addition, your students will learn engineering skills, negotiating skills, communications skills, and leadership skills while having a great time.

Proportional reasoning is the heart and soul of mathematics in grades five through eight. Future success in secondary mathematics and in the real-world math beyond school depends upon an understanding of and proficiency with proportions.This comprehensive handout explores eight ways to solve proportions including using graph paper, factoring, and even a multiplication table. The popular "Proportion Boxes" approach shown to teachers throughout the U.S. at my workshops is presented along with an

My students love to play with the Newton’s cradle I have in my class. Five steel pendulums hang from nylon threads on a steel frame. By dropping one ball, the corresponding ball moves on the other side and then returns giving a visual demonstration of Newton’s three laws of motion. The problem is that my 32 students can’t play with one cradle. In this “STEM on a Shoestring” activity, students will make their own inexpensive models to demonstrate Newton’s Laws. This handout contains many options

This creative activity facilitates discovery of number patterns and develops number sense while providing critical skills practice. The activity works great with both positive and negative numbers and decimals, fractions, and even variable expressions in algebra. Because it can be designed to be self-checking, it is easy for the teacher and engaging for the students.

Students explore the science of "steganography" in this easy-to-implement yet highly engaging lab. No chemistry experience is required, yet it ties in well to any chemical unit on acids and indicators, oxidation, and fluorescing light. Both a student lab sheet is and a student notes sheet are included along with simple step-by-step procedures, answer keys, and illustrations. A reference to tie in the movie "National Treasure" is also included.

This lab will teach students how to identify evergreen trees found in the volcanic Cascade Range of the Pacific Northwest. The samples are representative of Lassen Volcanic National Park in northern California. Lassen represents the southern terminus of the Cascades and is one of the few places in the world where all the different types of volcanism can be found in one location. Due to its diverse geology, there is a corresponding diversity of conifers in the area. Students will be asked to iden

Based on the famous Fibonacci sequence, this activity helps students develop numbers sense as they work with addition and subtraction. Decimals and integers are easily incorporated, and estimation skills are honed. It is a nice activity for the teacher since much of the work is self-correcting. Problem solving strategies can be taught, and students can even use algebra as a tool.
