This is a graphic organizer that allows students to show their work when using manipulatives (like counters) to add and subtract integers. It has a space for students to draw a picture showing how they used the manipulatives to solve each problem.
This activity allows students to learn the concept of solving systems of equations using candy (Smarties and Tootsie Rolls) and pennies. I have had great success with this activity, even with students who are resistant to participation with
I created this activity because I could never find a discovery activity that I liked for transformations of functions. This activity begins with transformations of a parabola and then extends the idea to other parent functions on the final page.
Function operations can seem so abstract, it's nice to give students a concrete example of when they might be useful. This project is about a Los Angeles Skateboard company called Fresh Wheels. In order to complete the project, students must add
This is useful for teaching factoring third (and higher) degree polynomials using rational zeros theorem and synthetic division. It allows students to look at a graph using a graphing calculator (or Desmos) in order to decide which possible rational
This graphic organizer allows students to show their work using algebra tiles. There is a space to draw their tiles under each problem. I have found it useful for holding students accountable when using manipulatives.
This is an activity that allows students to see how solving systems of linear equations by elimination works using manipulatives. Students can use standard algebra tiles, but I have also included my own manipulatives that can be printed and cut out.
This is useful when beginning to teach about end behavior, since students are asked to describe end behavior based only on a graph. It helps students to visualize what end behavior really means. This worksheet has enough space for students to write
This resource is a reference for the characteristics of parent functions that students fill-in themselves. They can use what they know about describing functions to make a useful "cheat sheet" with information about the constant, linear, quadratic,
