This number sense and operations study guide provides notes and explanations as well as practice problems. In order to practice their math skills, learners write fractions as decimals, identify which number set a number belongs to, take square roots, and change decimals into rational numbers. This could be used as stand-alone worksheet and notes or as a tool to build a test around.
Get an interdisciplinary edge. Scholars study air contamination and slope. They record the time it takes for air fresheners to reach them at variable distances. They document their times, classify them by distance, and draw a scatter plot to represent the mean figures of their data. Great lesson!
Middle schoolers add, subtract, multiply, and divide rational numbers. They find the square and the cube of numbers. They create a game incorporating computation on rational numbers. Everyone works together to write and evaluate expressions. Note: the associate video is only available via purchase, but the other activities hold enough value to support the lesson without it.
Rise and shine, mathematicians! These warm-ups will get your class putting on their thinking caps first thing as they recall past concepts and continue practicing newer ones. The problems are segmented and include concepts such as number patterns, subtracting and reducing fractions, adding money amounts, writing word problems, and basic math operations. There are two pages here; have scholars do an entire page as a warm-up or split them up into a few days. Each page has five separate problems.
Strengthen your scholars' use of academic vocabulary with a review of math terms such as addend, sum, minuend, difference, greater than, etc. Practice using the symbols and language for comparing numbers. Finally, they cut out pictures from magazines, glue them onto paper, line them up in a row, and practice identifying and describing location and sequence using ordinal numbers.
Get your bright-eyed mathematicians thinking first thing in the morning using this set of morning math problems. There are 20 warm-ups here with concepts including number patterns, solving for a variable, greater than/less than, prime numbers, square root, greatest common factor, place value, order of operations, and multiplication. These aren't numbered, so if you want kids to do them one at a time, consider numbering together before they begin.
Middle schoolers construct a three-dimensional model of a city using both similar and congruent figures and geometric transformations. City must have at least ten buildings with each building labeled and may be constructed out of paper or modeling clay. A two-dimensional representation, drawn to scale, must be included as well.
Assess your second graders with this end of the year test. Originally meant for home school, this assessment could also be used in a larger setting. Learners complete 35 problems based on their knowledge of the second grade math curriculum. The topics include addition, subtraction, place value, multiplication, measuring, and other math skills. This is a long test, so it could be taken over the course of several days.
