Educators - Copy or use of my material with your students is encouraged

Elementary:

  • Repeated Addition/Products (new!)
    • Students connect repeated addition to products as they write products that equal repeated addition lists.
    • Students write repeated addition equations and matching products for given numerical values
  • Multiplication Facts by Tic Tac Toe (new!)
    • How to teach the TicTacToe method. The sheets can be placed on the ELMO for student use.
    • Product Anchors for Brownwood ISD Third Grade
    • Students practice their multiplication facts on a Tic Tac Toe template
    • Students practice writing their facts using these worksheets. Transition can be made so that students write their own Tic Tac Toe grid and fill in the facts. Please contact Patricia if you want instructions on how to use these sheets for equivalent fractions.
  • Skip to My Lou Song
    • A fun way to introduce skip counting
  • Hokey-Pokey Song
    • This song uses the placement of numbers on a number line to teach inequalities
  • Build A Strong Foundation Of Geometry
    • Follow the directions to make a flex-a-gon cube out of 12 straws and string. Brainstorm applications that students can visualize as they learn their multiplication facts.
  • Capacity Charts
    • Use centimeter cubes on the quantities on the chart when converting. One chart is used to convert between pints-quarts-gallons. The other is used to convert from ounces to gallons.
  • Introduction to Elapsed Time
    • Students are led through elapsed time problems, ending with those that require regrouping. Drills enable students to work with both one hour and ten minute increments.
  • Grade 4 - Elapsed Time
    • Problem Solving Activity. Students use clues to create the radio station schedule.
  • Grade 5 - Elapsed Time
    • Problem Solving Activity. Students use clues to create the radio station schedule.
  • Elapsed Time Calculations Chart
    • Work in pairs to move from the top time to the bottom by adding only one hour or five minute increments at a time. Room for showing time calculations is available.
  • Elapsed Time Problem Solving
    • Use clues to put the elapsed times into a schedule.
  • Prime Factorization
    • Introduce prime and composite numbers using the Factor Pairs activity. Use the Prime Factorization Chart by placing centimeter cubes on varying sets of primes. Count the cubes under each prime heading to write out the prime factorizations with exponents.
  • Working with Time
    • Students use centimeter cubes on this chart to calculate elapsed time. One chart shows AM/PM.
  • Number Lines with Fractions
    • Give the numerical name, in fraction form, for each location on the number line. (Could also name the decimal)
  • Probability
    • The number of cubes placed in sacks are given in tables. Name the probabilities. Choose which sack matches each spinner and fill in the information to match. (Answers could be given in simplified fraction form, depending on grade level.)
  • Rounding Numbers
    • Circle the numbers which round, or do not round to a given numeral.

Middle School:


Algebra:

  • Algebra Tile Products
    • Complete the table after drawing the Algebra Tiles that are created from each binomial product. Discover why some binomial products form squares and others do not.
  • Test Taking, a Privilege, Not a Right
  • Ten Pennies
    • Given two points, students determine the slope, y-intercept and the equation of each line.
    • Given five ordered pairs, or the slope and a point, students use pennies to make one line and then create the parallel or perpendicular line. Students fill in tables to discover the relationship between the slopes of parallel and perpendicular lines.
    • Given the ordered pairs that are the vertices of quadrilaterals and triangles, students write the equations of the lines that create the shapes, along with the domain or range boundaries.
  • Graph and Shade Linear Inequalities
    • Students initially graph two linear inequalties given in slope-intercept form on the same grid. They shade with two colored pencils or highlighters and check using a graphing calculator. They are guided toward coding regions as solutions to both, neither, first only, or second only. Linear inequalities are later given in standard form.
  • Variables and Problem Solving
    • Solve for the length of each dimension of a polygon when given the perimeter and each dimension in variable form. Three worksheets of application problems are included.
