Testing is approaching and you are probably looking for an easy way to help your 7th grade math students review everything you've taught them over the past school year...a daunting task.
This Mini-Book may do the trick. Using only one sheet of paper, two staples, and a pair of scissors, students are able to create an 8-page mini book that reviews 20 important skills/concepts from the 7th grade math Common Core standards. Most of the 20 skills include quick sample problems for the students to try on their own.
This .zip file contains a Word document with a foldable mini-book which has a quick review of the major Common Core concepts and practice problems for the entire 7th grade math year. You also get a .pdf file of the mini-book, a .pdf of the mini-book with answers, and a PowerPoint with space to work each of the sample problems as warm-ups for class.
**P.S. Most of the steps and processes are generic, with a few possible exceptions (listed below). Since this is a Word document, you can edit most of the items on the sheets, if necessary.
1. The "triangle trick" on integer rules refers to covering over the signs of the integers in the multiplication or division problem to reveal the correct sign of your answer.
2. The "inside out" phrase on decimal division refers to a memory trick to help students put the first number "in the house" and the second number "outside the house" on long division.
