I created this order of operations question stack activity to give my Algebra 1 students extra practice applying the order of operations to some rather involved expressions. These order of operations questions are specially designed to expose students to various grouping symbols including parentheses, brackets, absolute value bars, radicals, and fraction bars. I created a …

I created this dry erase template for my Algebra 2 students to use while learning to solve equations graphically using our graphing calculators. The idea is that students will write the equation at the top of the page. Then, they will put each side of the equation into their graphing calculator. I provided students with …

I created this set of 20 domain and range challenges for my Algebra 1 students to work though as a review for our quiz over domain and range. This post is yet another of my catch-up posts. I have been going through my old twitter posts to make sure that everything that I have tweeted …

I created this hole punch activity to give my Algebra 1 students practice finding rate of change from a graph. When I teach Algebra 1, I intentionally avoid using the word “slope” for as long as possible. I printed off a bunch of practice questions for students to complete inside our dry erase pockets. If …

I really like this lovely radicals task from Terry Stickels. It simply asks: Which of the following is the smallest? I shared it on twitter, and I loved reading through people’s logical reasoning as they worked through the problem! I found this problem in The Big Book of Mind-Bending Puzzles by Terry Stickels.

I created these leveled practice cards for solving absolute value equations when I taught Algebra 1. There are three levels of problems so that students can start with problems of an appropriate difficulty level. Level 1 Questions – Absolute value bars are already isolated. Level 2 Questions – Students have one step to do in …

I created this exponent rules review game in February of 2020. It exposes students to actual ACT questions from past released exams, and it gives students a chance to play the role of exam writer by crafting tricky distractors for each question. I originally crafted this review game for my Pre-Calculus students. I wanted to …

I created this Sketch a Graph Activity to give my Algebra 2 students much-needed practice with the vocabulary we use to describe the key features of functions. This activity was based off of a problem in Pearson’s (now Savvas) Algebra 2 textbook. Even though the alignment of the textbook to the Oklahoma standards has left …

Just a quick post today to share an inequality and interval notation chart I created for my Algebra 2 students this past year. Due to COVID, I did not do my normal style of note-taking style in my classes this year. We were asked to do things with as little paper as possible due to …

I created this graphing inequalities work mat when I taught Algebra 1 to help my students conceptualize what it actually meant to graph an inequality. So often, I have a tendency to just give my students a set of steps to follow without making sure they understand why we are following those steps. Why are …
