Use this set of handouts for the first week of school with your algebra students .... or any time!
WHAT is a skiddle?
SKILLS + RIDDLES = SKIDDLES
There are a myriad of skills that our students must master to be successful in algebra.
These “SKIDDLES” provide practice and reinforce the skills your students need to be successful in algebra.
They have the added advantage of being self-checking. If solutions don’t lead to a reasonable answer to the riddle/joke, students know to check their work!
This packet of SKIDDLES covers basic skills of algebra,
→Units and Dimensional Analysis
→Interpreting Expressions / Equations
→Working with Properties I
→Working with Properties II
→Writing Equations in One Variable / LINEAR
→Writing Equations in One Variable / EXPONENTIAL
→Writing/Graph Inequalities in One Variable
→Plotting Ordered Pairs
Ready to PRINT & GO and perfect for SUBPLANS!
Use them to review at the beginning of the year, for refresher throughout the year, or just to reward your students with something ‘different!”
Your students may groan at the corny jokes…. but they will remember you as the the teacher that made math FUN!
