Test Prep Pre Algebra Common Core Math Practice. Welcome to the Zombie Common “Corpse” Café!
This is a perfect end-of-year review!
Common Core practice and test prep can actually be FUN! This product will give your middle school & secondary students engaging practice with 18 of the common core standards in math…wow! This resource is also part of a Zombie Bundle!
This student choice menu activity gives plenty of opportunities for differentiation. If you know students need extra practice in an area, they can choose it as a menu option. My students just love zombies - they give math practice a fun spin!
The Common Core Standards are marked on the menu for easy reference. And your students will love the food choices…Zombie Teacher Tots, Hamster Hash (even a gluten-free option!), Big Al’s Chicken Pot Pi, and much more!
Here are the Common Core Math Standards your students can work with during the activity – 18 in all:
7.G.4: Know the formulas for the area and circumference of a circle and use them to solve problems.
8.NS.1: Understand informally that every number has a decimal expansion; the rational numbers are those with decimal expansions that terminate in 0s or eventually repeat. Know that other numbers are called irrational.
8.NS.2: Use rational approximations of irrational numbers to compare the size of irrational numbers, locate them approximately on a number line diagram, and estimate the value of expressions.
8.EE.1: Know and apply the properties of integer exponents to generate equivalent numerical expressions.
8.EE.3: Use numbers expressed in the form of a single digit times an integer power of 10 to estimate very large or very small quantities, and to express how many times as much one is than the other.
8.EE.4: Perform operations with numbers expressed in scientific notation, including problems where both decimal and scientific notation are used. Use scientific notation and choose units of appropriate size for measurements of very large or very small quantities.
8.EE.6: Derive the equation y = mx + b for a line through the origin and the equation y = mx + b for a line intercepting the vertical axis at b.
8.EE.7: Solve linear equations in one variable.
8.EE.8: Analyze and solve pairs of simultaneous linear equations.
8.G.1: Verify experimentally the properties of rotations, reflections, and translations.
8.G.2: Understand that a two-dimensional figure is congruent to another if the second can be obtained from the first by a sequence of rotations, reflections, and translations.
8.G.3: Describe the effect of dilations, translations, rotations, and reflections on two-dimensional figures using coordinates.
8.G.4: Understand that a two-dimensional figure is similar to another if the second can be obtained from the first by a sequence of rotations, reflections, translations, and dilations.
8.G.5: Use informal arguments to establish facts about the angle sum and exterior angles of triangles and about the angles created when parallel lines are cut by a transversal.
8.G.6: Explain a proof of the Pythagorean Theorem and its converse.
8.G.7: Apply the Pythagorean Theorem to determine unknown side lengths in right triangles in real-world and mathematical problems in two dimensions.
8.F.1: Understand that a function is a rule that assigns to each input exactly one output. The graph of a function is the set of ordered pairs consisting of an input and the corresponding output.
8.SP.2: Know that straight lines are widely used to model relationships between two quantitative variables. For scatter plots that suggest a linear association, informally fit a straight line, and informally assess the model fit by judging the closeness of the data points to the line.
I’ve provided the main menu in color and black & white. For my students, I copied the color menu and laminated a class set. They’ll last for years!
