Students are asked to read, plot, and reflect on a coordinate plane.
This one-page activity asks students to attend to precision in realizing that the scale on the coordinate grid is 4 and the origin is not directly in the middle of the given
After reading "The Math Curse" by Jon Scienszka, students will mimic the creativity to show how fractions show up in their own lives.
This project can be used to extend student thinking about fractions and integrate writing into the math classroom.
I laminate this to use with expo markers. Students are given simplified fractions (1/2, 13/20, 5/8, etc) and practice showing them as:
- division problems
- equivalent fractions
After practicing with expos, they
Students are given ways to remember each property, asked to recognize the properties, and then apply the properties to efficiently solve problems.
A review is given at the top to help 'reteach' or be used as notes.
This week-long activity has students work in groups to build a 3D figure out of recycled objects, then measure and calculate the amount of surface area on their figure. Once given the exact amount of aluminum foil they've determined they need, they
