Top Four Passionate Math Teacher Blogs

Top Four Passionate Math Teacher Blogs

What an amazing set of blogs! Which activities are your favorite?

There are so many ideas here that can be replicated throughout the algebra curriculum. Just because your students are essentially teenagers, they still want to get up out of their seat and learn in a fun interactive way. Don’t deprive them! Let’s get creative!!!!

Quadratic Equation Card Sort

I’m so happy I follow @Maths_Masters on Twitter! Such wonderful resources! I must share this one with my algebra teachers.

Quadratic Equations – The Main Ideas.

Better yet, give students the Group 1 through 5 titles from the card sort first and see if they can generate facts for each of them while working in groups of 3 or 4 first. After they have exhausted their knowledge, provide them with the card sort to work out. Finally, have the students, still within their small groups, compare what they came up with with this card sort. While students may not be able to generate all of the facts on their own, nor be able to word their facts as succinctly, the ownership students will experience when they connect what they wrote to the facts on the cards will be immeasurable.

Conduct Alert Policy

Check this out…modify to your needs…and make your life easier! This has worked quiet well as a school wide discipline plan for several schools. As the year winds down it’s important to analyze what has worked and what has not worked. This may be something you’d like to adopt for next year. Start bringing key players on board now to make this a smooth transition for the fall.

Conduct Alert System – Puts the responsibility of student behavior back on the student

Conduct Alert – Form for students to fill out that coincides with the Conduct Alert System
