Math Magic

Learners work in pairs, and take turns pretending to be a magician. There are a set of instructions for the magician to follow. A penny and a dime are used, and odd and even numbers are employed for multiplying. There is also a nifty game that uses dice. Kids love these kinds of games and usually want to learn them well enough to bring home and demonstrate to their families. One nice aspect of this resource is all of the mental math involved.

Hi, I was recently hired as a middle school science teacher in Newark, NJ. I received a call on a Friday and was asked to begin the following Monday. As a new teacher, and with only 3 days to prepare, I was really feeling the pressure. The school requires 2 weeks of lesson plans every Sunday, so I began searching the web for help. Thank goodness I found Lesson Planet. I still use the site everyday to form great lessons and activities for the kids.
