*** FREE Common Squares material in the preview!!!***

Every year, I ponder the value of memorization. For some kiddos, memorizing things is really HARD and can make them HATE a class! Why can't we just google the fact? Although difficult for some, many kids are more than capable of memorizing lists of math concepts. Many of us might even consider these concepts "common knowledge" and things that all people should know. Either way, my students would agree that once they know these useful tidbits, it makes their everyday math life so much easier. They are able to focus on problem solving, not wasting brain power on trying to figure out how many quarts are in a gallon or 'how in the world am I going to add 32 4/5 to 17.9'.

So yes, I ask my middle school students to memorize stuff!! What stuff?

• Common Squares
• Common Cubes
• Fraction-Decimal conversion (halves, thirds, fourths, fifths, sixths, eighths)
• Metric and Customary Conversion Facts
• Cumulative review of all topics above!!

We make it as fun as possible, and I use it as an opportunity to also teach study skills and learning strategies. I de-emphasize the actual grade and focus on growth and effort. For students who struggle with memorization, we have a one-on-one, heart-to-heart and make separate goals. We discuss strengths, weaknesses, and the importance of simply doing your best!

In this product, you will find study sheets, practice quizzes with study activities, in class quizzes, and answer keys. Check out the preview for a detailed description of what's included for each topic. You will also find a common squares list, practice quiz, and regular quiz for FREE!!!

ENJOY!

ANSWER KEYS are included for all practice and regular quizzes!!

Write and evaluate numerical expressions involving whole-number exponents.
Interpret a fraction as division of the numerator by the denominator (π’/π£ = π’ Γ· π£). Solve word problems involving division of whole numbers leading to answers in the form of fractions or mixed numbers, e.g., by using visual fraction models or equations to represent the problem. For example, interpret 3/4 as the result of dividing 3 by 4, noting that 3/4 multiplied by 4 equals 3, and that when 3 wholes are shared equally among 4 people each person has a share of size 3/4. If 9 people want to share a 50-pound sack of rice equally by weight, how many pounds of rice should each person get? Between what two whole numbers does your answer lie?
Recognize volume as an attribute of solid figures and understand concepts of volume measurement.
Convert among different-sized standard measurement units within a given measurement system (e.g., convert 5 cm to 0.05 m), and use these conversions in solving multi-step, real world problems.
