Product Description
Spun-off from Amazon's popular line of Bossy Brocci Math and Big Science Workbooks, this Bundle of Hands-on (Experimental) Density Calculations contains: 5 Lessons, 14 Worksheets, 322 Problems or Tasks - and Assessment up the a\$\$! Individual cost would be \$7, but the Bundle price is just \$5

46 slides are printed as 23 Landscape DOUBLE-SIDED sheets of paper, with the flip being along the 'SHORT' edge.

================================================

Most ELA, Math and Science teachers don't have more than 100

State Tests on their shoulders - and they enjoy anywhere from 60 to

90 minutes to teach their class. But I've been whipping the

State while teaching an average of 110 students per year - and

with only about 38 minutes for science class!

It's a matter of public record:

I've crushed the State by 17 to 32 points, and by an average

of 23 points over a 5-year stretch.

And I'm North Carolina's 2016 Top-Scoring Science Teacher.

I've done it with:

No Teaching Assistants,

No Tutors,

No Remediation Class,

and No Test-Prep books or programs.

So what are my kids learning, doing and using?

Bossy Brocci worksheets.
