Middle school math bell ringers / bellwork / practice exercises. Suitable for grades 5 - 8 including pre-algebra, and Algebra I.
Included are 150 practice exercises (15 sets of 10 each). This should be enough to last an entire year.
Topics include (but are not limited to) arithmetic, fractions, decimals, rounding, making change, prime numbers, integers, and equations.
Each exercise should only take 3-5 to complete and should be able to be completed with no (or very limited) instruction from the teacher.
So many students struggle with basic math skills, and that lack of skills causes real problems as they move into pre-algebra and higher math. These practice exercises will help your students improve in basic skills without taking hardly any time from your class.
Use these exercises at the start of class. Your students should be able to do them with little or no instruction from you, leaving you time time to take attendance, speak with students, or deal with other administrative tasks.
