Are your first day of school activities not as creative or meaningful as you'd like? Would you rather have a back to school lesson for your high school math students with more purpose? This calculator exercise is the solution. With this calculator exercise, your high school math students will be engaged in solving problems and practicing calculator skills while sharing about themselves and learning about you. Other benefits of this resource include: formative assessment/pre-test, assess math mindset, check for calculator skills, and set learning expectations.
The sample problems written on the Teacher’s Edition were written for an Algebra 1 classroom with pre-requisite skills focusing on order of operations and calculator input. This worksheet can be customized to your grade level and subject area by changing the Teacher’s Edition problems.
