Product Description

I started using choice boards last year and LOVE them! I never gave my students the opportunity to be creative in my classroom. For years, it was notes, homework, and repeat until the test. These choice boards give students the ability to express themselves within their particular learning style. I have been so impressed with the results I get from my students.

This choice board focuses on Equations & Inequalities. Also included in this file are mini posters that describe each option on the choice board. I put these on a bulletin board that hangs all year, as we do a number of choice boards. You can also show them on a projector when introducing the choice board to your class. I like to distribute the choice boards at the beginning of the unit and give them a due date around the test.

When my students did their first choice board, I gave them a period in class to work on it. Following choice boards were completed entirely on their own time. I have also created and included a general rubric that you can use for any choice board item. To differentiate, I occasionally allow lower level students to complete two choices (I will cross out a row). The other option for differentiation is to reduce the number required for a particular choice. For example, have a student create two story problems rather than four. I also give students extra credit for any choices that they complete beyond the minimum.

I have created 14 choice boards for 7th grade common core math covering the following topics:

Unit 1: Complex Rates

Unit 2: Proportional Relationships

Unit 3: Proportions & Percents

Unit 4: Adding & Subtracting Rational Numbers

Unit 5: Multiplying & Dividing Rational Numbers

Unit 6: Expressions

Unit 7: Equations and Inequalities

Unit 8: Probability of Simple Events

Unit 9: Probability of Compound Events

Unit 10: Statistics

Unit 11: 2-D Geometry

Unit 12: 3-D Geometry

Unit 13: Scale Drawings

Unit 14: Geometric Constructions

Common Core:

Expressions and Equations —7.EE

B. Solve real-life and mathematical problems using numerical and algebraic expressions and equations. 4. Use variables to represent quantities in a real-world or mathematical problem, and construct simple

equations and inequalities to solve problems by reasoning about the quantities.

a. Solve word problems leading to equations of the form px + q = r and p(x + q) = r, where p, q, and r are specific rational numbers. Solve equations of these forms fluently. Compare an algebraic solution to an arithmetic solution, identifying the sequence of the operations used in each approach. For example, the perimeter of a rectangle is 54 cm. Its length is 6 cm. What is its width?

b. Solve word problems leading to inequalities of the form px + q > r or px + q < r, where p, q, and r are specific rational numbers. Graph the solution set of the inequality and interpret it in the context of the problem. For example: As a salesperson, you are paid $50 per week plus $3 per sale. This week you want your pay to be at least $100. Write an inequality for the number of sales you need to make, and describe the solutions.
