Fun doodle activity to identify parts of a parabola for real-world scenarios.

While searching for a "fun" and engaging task or activity to introduce linear vs. exponential functions, I found this blog post from Learning with Tape about a zombie outbreak! AWESOME! I couldn't resist trying this out in my class. I teach a remedial class called Algebra AB, which is the first semester of Algebra 1 over the entire year. I was leery of this activity and knew that I needed to have a very structured activity that held each student accountable for the thinking and processing…

This Operations with Rational Numbers paper chain activity was the perfect way to get my 7th grade Math students practicing adding, subtracting, multiplying, & dividing rational numbers. I love that it includes Decimals, Fractions, Positives, and Negatives. I also love that it gets progressively harder to challenger those more advanced students.

In keeping with my Week 1 emphasis in Algebra 1 on activating prior knowledge of how to translate words into mathematical expressions, equations, or inequalities (or at least gelling some of it back into place), I've also created a "Block" game for practicing 'Words into Math' in my Algebra 1 classes. There are two levels of game cards that correspond to Lessons 1.3 and 1.4 in McDougall Littell Algebra 1 California edition (for those of you playing along at home). This is a variation on…

FREE - real world math activity for slope, linear equations, or direct variation.

This game needs a name yet. Your help is appreciated with that endeavor. First I'll tell you how we played it in class, then I let you know wha…

This linear equations project was one of my favorite activities while teaching Algebra. Students plant seeds, grow grass, measure, plot growth, find line of fit and get attached to their little cups of grass. They see slope in real life and understand interpolation and extrapolation by writing linear equations and using them to estimate height. Giving their grass a "haircut" even allows for a real-life first introduction to piecewise functions. The project is perfect for project based…
