You get two activities for a low price! Who doesn't love to save money!!
The first download:
Order of Operations QR Code Lie Detector Test TEKS 5.4E and 5.4F No Exponents!
This activity is rigorous and fun! It also integrates TECHNOLOGY!
Students will become lie detectors while completing an error analysis on each problem!
In partners- Students will work through each problem. Students will determine which problems are Truths (correctly done) and Lies (incorrectly done) and put the cards on the sorting mat. Students should be instructed to justify their thinking with their partners. You should hear good conversations about why a card is a truth or a lie.
Students will analyze 18 different problems.
After students are completely done sorting, students will scan the QR codes at the bottom to reveal the correct answers. The answers are the letters in the bottom corner of each card.
Students should be instructed to look back at their mistakes and figure out why they incorrectly sorted the card.
If you do not have access to QR Code reader, I have included the answer key in the teacher instructions, so you do not need a QR code reader to have the students complete this activity!
The Second Download:
Need an activity to practice order of operations using whole numbers, without exponents, that also helps to reinforce the meaning of parenthesis and brackets? Look no further! This partner game INTEGRATES TECHNOLOGY, while also helping students reach mastery level of simplifying equations! Download comes with 24 equations, QR Code answers, Answer Sheet (in case you do not have the ability to read QR Codes) Recording Sheet, student instructions, teacher instructions and Exit Slip! TEKS 5.4E & 5.4F are both addressed in this activity!
Each problem card can be solved using 6 steps. The die chooses which step you must solve the equation to, for example in the problem, 5 + 12 x (2 + 5) ÷ 4 – 7, if a 2 is rolled, you must come up with the 2nd step in the equation. For this example the 2nd step is 12 x 7. In order to know what the 2nd step is, you would have to know that (2 + 5) is your first step which is 7 then your 2nd step is 12 x 7.
The QR Code on the card is the answer to the equation step by step.
Step 6 is always to SOLVE IT! Which means you must work through the entire problem to find the answer.
You can use this as a partner game (instructions included) or use it as independent practice, or even as a small group re-teaching activity!
