## Set and Interval Notation Dry Erase Template

Just a quick blog post today to share a set and interval notation dry erase template I ran across recently while organizing my Algebra 2 files. I didn’t actually end up using this dry erase template because the other activities I had planned ended up taking a lot longer than usual. My plan, though, was …

## Build a Function Activity

I created this short and sweet build a function activity to give my Algebra 2 students extra practice using some of our new vocabulary: domain, codomain, and range. This activity was designed to accompany Section 1.2 (Introduction to Functions) of Shaun Carter’s Full Year of Algebra 2 Notes. I will be honest. Even though I …

## Spot the Safety Hazards Picture

When I was prepping to teach chemistry a few years ago, I ran across this Spot the Safety Hazards Picture. I thought it would make the perfect addition to my beginning of year lab safety review. I took the image and prepared a file to print the picture on 11 x 17 cardstock to use …

## Dry Erase Template for Solving Equations Graphically

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 …

## Domain and Range Challenge Activity

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 …

## Finding Rate of Change from a Graph Hole Punch Activity

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 …

## Leveled Practice Cards Activity for Absolute Value Equations

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 …

## Exponent Rules Review Game with ACT Questions and Distractors

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 …

## Sketch a Graph Activity

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 …

## Tic Tac Toe Dice Game

What happens when you combine tic tac toe with a dice game? I was excited to discover this Tic Tac Toe Dice game in the book Dice Games by John Belton and Joella Crambit (1976). I was so excited about it that I typed up a PDF version to use with my students before I …
