A way to develop math vocabulary without being boring! Can be used all year…

Yesterday, I shared pictures of the foldable and graphic organizer I designed for reviewing the Order of Operations with my Algebra 1 students. Thanks everyone for all the great feedback! Today, I wanted to share my foldable template and graphic organizer with you all! You may download the PDF at the end of this post. I have to say I can't take credit for setting up the order of operations as a hopscotch game. I originally saw it arranged as a hopscotch game at Runde's Room. She teaches her…

Classroom Organization at Really Good Stuff

Zombies & Graphing Lines sounds like fun! My 8th Grade Math & Algebra students would love this activity!

Many of the 7th grade standards in South Carolina have me cover topics very briefly.

We did it for a day to make sure everyone was a pro! And because I was doing all CCSS-7, CCSS-8, and CCSS-Alg 1 standards (yikes! remember from here?) Anyway... We reviewed some basics, talked about what the theorem was really telling us (equal areas), talked about the theorem's converse, and talked about triples. All of…

The ultimate middle school math movie is October Sky. Middle school math teachers can show this movie in their math classrooms to inspire their students.

I've only been out of school for 11 days and I can't help it...I'm already planning things for next year. I Thought I'd share since I've been away from posting for so long. So no guarantees on tons of
