Class Starters Keep Your Students' Skills in Shape
Each Mathercise™ worksheet is a blackline-master "class starter" for high school and middle school students. Use the activities with an overhead projector, or make copies for your students, to "Mathercise" them once or twice a week at the beginning of class. You'll keep your students in shape, on track, and on time!
Discovering Geometry author Michael Serra wrote the original Mathercise™: Book C as warm-up activities for his geometry students. He found the first few minutes of class to be the perfect time to sharpen skills and provide additional algebra practice. The original Mathercise™ was so successful that he created four additional Mathercise™ books for different levels.
Each Mathercise™ takes ten minutes and includes one reasoning exercise, one solving exercise, one sketching or graphing exercise, and space for a review exercise of your own design.
Mathercise™ Book A: Pre-Algebra (Grades 7–8) is for middle school and high school students not yet taking beginning algebra.
