I’ve been blogging for over nine years now. And, those nine years have been full of resource sharing. Now, it feels like the tables have turned with the pandemic. Instead of me sharing resources with you guys, I keep getting all these emails, DMs, tweets, etc full of links to virtual/digital versions of the activities I’ve blogged about over the years. This has been amazing, but I haven’t done a very good job of organizing all these links. I especially haven’t done a good job of sharing them. As a result, many of you are recreating the same activities over and over. So, I’ve decided to dedicate this blog post to sharing links to these digital versions of activities that have been shared with me. Hopefully this will save you some time and prevent someone from reinventing the wheel over and over again.
Have you digitized one of my activities? Send me a link, and I’ll add it to the post! Mega thanks to everyone who has been creating activities and sharing them. I *think* I included all the links that people sent me. If I missed one of them, please send it again so I can include it.
While you’re at it, check out her card sorts, too!
Liz Mastalio has digitized my Building Polynomials Activity. Check out the digital version of the building and naming polynomials puzzle in Google Slides.
Polynomial Division Using the Box Method
Liz Mastalio has also digitized this activity to help introduce students to the box method. You can download Liz’s digital version on Google Slides.
Twos to Nines Challenges
One of my most popular blog posts is a beginning of school activity I put together a few years ago called the Twos to Nines Challenge.
Nine Squares Puzzle
Cathy Gloade has been busy at work creating digital versions of a ton of activities. Check out her entire collection including some from other sources here. You can read my original post about this activity here. And, check out Cathy’s Google Slides version.
Make It Even
Twelve Envelopes Puzzle
Another popular beginning of year blog post of mine is the Twelve Envelopes Puzzle.
Sum to Twenty Puzzle
Perfect Square Puzzle
That’s Logical Puzzles
I taught a Math Concepts class a few years ago for ninth graders who weren’t ready for Algebra 1. One of my favorite ongoing activities we did was the That’s Logical Puzzles. The book is out of print and hard to find, so I was super excited to see that Megan Ludwinski has made a Google Slides version of the puzzles.
Big Magic Puzzle
Build It Activity
Check out her Google Slides version here.
So maybe this is cheating because it was already a digital activity. But I thought that it might be of interest to some of you since we are having to do so many things digitally now. Check out my Google Slides version of Frank Tapson’s Hidden Animals here. Students are given a sentence in which they must locate the name of a hidden animal.
8 Sticks Puzzle
I blogged a few weeks ago about a Google Slides version I created for the 8 Sticks Puzzle. You can find it here.
12 Basic Functions Challenge
I created the 12 Basic Functions Challenge to expose my Pre-Calc students to a wide variety of parent functions.
@hypertrig has created a digital version and is willing to share it. I don’t have a shareable link, unfortunately.
Factoring Monic Quadratics Activity
Last year, I created a factoring practice activity where students had to match the factors with the monic quadratics.
Blocko is one of my absolute favorite games to play with students when teaching probability.
