math classroom setup ideas
Over the years, I've compiled 25 printable PDF math reference sheets in this post -- all free. Most are for algebra and algebra 2. Some have videos to go along with them, and I have been planning on making more (goals). The math cheat sheets are free because I made many of them for my own inclusion algebra 2 students who needed reminders of the steps in the different processes we were learning in class. I hope the sheets are helpful for your math students, too! More at scaffoldedmath.com
This math word wall bundle covers standards from 6th grade, 7th grade, 8th grade and Algebra. All of the topics covered are listed in the preview file and standards can be seen in each individual word wall listing. The word walls in this bundle show math vocabulary in context. This allows students t...
We are ALL Math People! Print this I AM a Math Person crown for your students to color and wear as a reminder that they are awesome! Directions for creating the crown are inside the PDF and are very simple-- color, cut, staple. My daughter is 8 and did all but the stapling to put her crown together. This Math Crown is a real confidence-booster during the school year, during mid-term and end of year exams, as a reward for hard workers, or anytime your students need a little boost.
Hands on geometric transformations? Yes! In this post I share an easy, hands-on method for demonstrating reflections and rotations of geometric shapes and their coordinates in the coordinate plane. The video included in the post covers reflecting over the x-axis, over the y-axis and over the line y = x. This same method will work for reflecting over any line of symmetry in the coordinate plane, even linear equations. I then share an idea for showing geometric rotations with a hole punch.
