RECENTLY UPDATED!! This product now contains two complete sets of manipulatives with a corresponding powerpoint and a worksheet for student practice. One set is an introduction to using and solving formulas (volume, circumference, distance, perimeter and interest) and the second set contains more difficult formula manipulations (Newton's law of gravitation, area of a trapezoid, average acceleration of an object, surface area of a rectangular prism, surface area of a cone, and temperature). Mix and match the two sets to your needs and liking!
COMMON CORE ALIGNED! Solving and Using Formulas provides you with the tools you need to teach students how to solve and use formulas as an engaging, hand’s on lesson. Students begin this lesson by cutting out pieces of paper (letters and operations) that they will use to manipulate formulas. The teacher can then use the provided powerpoint of problems to have students use their manipulatives to solve formulas for different variables. A practice worksheet and answer key are also provided as a means of further practice and solidifying understanding. Students are required to plug values into the manipulated formulas to find the value of the variable that was solved for on the worksheet. I use this in my class and it has been very helpful when teaching this concept that students often find challenging.
Included in this download:
- 2 formula manipulative sets
- 2 Practice Using Manipulatives powerpoint (includes practice problem and solution slides)
- 2 Solving and Using Formulas Worksheet (answer keys included)
