Here are the categories:
Mental Math Monday: 10 middle school mental math problems that I read aloud (no repeats!)
Tough Guess Tuesday: estimation180.com photos that students estimate how many
Which One Doesn't Belong Wednesday: wodb.ca four photos that students can name something unique for each
Throw Back Thursday: practice questions from the Accuplacer Elementary Algebra test that seniors take for community college placement and simplifying radicals; I haven't been teaching this soon enough (although in reality it's never needed, it still is for testing) so I'm addressing it through bell ringers because it worked really well for factoring last year
Factoring Friday: factoring
- Four Term
- Four Term with GCF
- Trinomial a = 1
- Trinomial a = 1 with GCF
- Trinomial a > 1
- Trinomial a > 1 with GCF
- Difference of Two Squares
- Difference of Two Squares with GCF
- Mixed (last 6 Friday slides)
Last year I used Google Forms for the first time. I really liked it although I often forgot to reset the responses.
This year I'm trying out Desmos Activity Builder. Some friends created one where students input their responses and then a graph lines up the floating dots and it just looks cool. lol
I plan on using that for Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. The other two days are multiple choice problems and I will use plickers.
The font is Forget Me Not and I spent a ridiculously long time changing all of my powerpoints to teal and gray chevron instead of teal and lime green. I know that nobody cares but me but...I CARE.
I also made the first slide links to every Monday slide so that you can jump ahead to the correct week of school if needed.
