Tired of the same old task cards? Are you trying a new blended classroom? Need help integrating technology into math? May be your school is moving to one-to-one devices... Here is a chance to integrate technology and still provide a rigorous problem solving activity!
This download comes with directions on how to take my interactive lesson (which is shared via a link in the directions) and share it with your students. This lesson can be shared on Google Classroom or you can share it as a link on classroom websites such as Edmodo.
The interactive lesson is on Google Slides. Students can improve computer skills while being fully engaged in the math lesson. No copies or paper needed!
The lesson contains 13 slides and many problem solving experiences.
Slide 1- Title, students put their names
Slide 2 - PEMDAS- Definitions of each. Exponents is mentioned here but not seen in the rest of the slide show.
Slide 3 - Why are parenthesis important? Students solve questions with and without parenthesis.
Slide 4- What went wrong? Error Analysis- Students will find the mistakes made in solving an expression
Slide 5- Fill in the blanks- Students will rearrange number tiles to form a correct equation.
Slide 6- Silly Story- Students will fill in the blanks to create a silly story. Solving expressions is involved.
Slide 7- Joke- Students solve equations and match the answer to a letter to create the punchline of a joke.
Slides 8-9 Problem Solving- Students will have guided problem solving with word problems. These are open ended.
Slide 10-11 Test Prep- multiple choice questions and explain your thinking.
Slide 13- Ending and how to share with your teacher
I also include another link for an answer key. This would be perfect as a partner activity, independent activity, enrichment, or review before STAAR!
