Description

Use this Algebra 1 Readiness Packet as an Algebra 1 prerequisite packet to assess the skills your students have when they set foot into your classroom. Use it as an entering Algebra 1 summer packet or as a back to school Algebra 1 review packet. You'll find out what concepts you need to reteach before introducing new content to your students. You can assign this math packet to be completed over the summer or during the first week of school. This Algebra 1 Readiness Packet also includes two activities to encourage parental involvement as well as a certificate to motivate and encourage students to put effort into their math class. There's also a NO PREP, easy to grade 10 question quiz to assess the content of the Algebra 1 Readiness Packet.

I’ve discovered throughout the years that so many students tune out mathematics once they take Pre-Algebra or especially Algebra 1 because it’s the first time they need to think about mathematics abstractly. That’s why as a teacher I always push them to try their best and encourage them through positive reinforcements (verbal praise, stickers on A papers, etc.) to be successful in mathematics. I tell my students they don’t necessarily have to like math, but they certainly need to be able to do math!

Algebra 1 Readiness Packet includes:

  • BOTH Algebra 1 review packets. If you purchase this one DO NOT buy the part 2 that's available for purchase. Click here to see what's included in Algebra 1 Readiness B2S Packet PART 2.
  • 42 math problems on operations with fractions, percents, graphs, perimeter and area of rectangles and squares, circumference and area of circles, volume of rectangular prisms and cubes, mean, median, mode, order of operations, Pythagorean Theorem, and solving one step equations.

  • Algebra 1 Readiness Packet Answer Key
  • Math in the Real World: Interview Activity
  • Family Math Tree Activity
  • I’m Off to a GREAT Start Certificate
  • 10 question quiz on the topics covered in the review

Common Core Standards/Objectives covered in the Algebra 1 Readiness Packet: After completing this lesson, students will be able to:

• Use the meaning of fractions and use addition, subtraction, multiplication and division to solve problems

• Recognize that a data distribution may not have a definite center and that different ways to measure center yield different values.

• Understand the difference between using a bar graph, line graph, and circle graph to represent data presented in a table

• Reason about relationships among shapes to determine perimeter, area, circumference and volume

• Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them

• Attend to precision

Suggested Lesson Implementation:

1. You can use this as a summer packet for your students to complete by the first day of school. You can collect the packets or simply have the students switch papers and check their answers.

2. My preference is to give these students this packet on the first day (or within the first week) of school and make it due in five days. That way, students can review the prerequisite skills needed for Algebra 1. Some schools undergo a lot of schedule changes during the first week of school so reviewing these skills is not a waste of the student’s time or yours. The Interview assignment and Family Math Tree are interesting ways to get the students to talk about mathematics within their home. You can also log it down as two ways you promote parental involvement in your math class. Then I give them the 10 question quiz.
