The Pythagorean Theorem anchor chart baby ready for next week! This will be added to my anchor chart bundle - so expect a free download…

Introduction What do golf, football, bankers, and the weather all have in common? The following activity is a Guided Tour which is intended to answer this ques…

I wanted to share a newly created resource that I made before it is too late for some teachers to use. I made this "Book of Transformations" for my students to use this year. Book of Transformations Transformations Reference Sheet In the middle column, I am going to have students write out the rule (with help from their reference sheet). To make copies: Print out document and copy 1-2 sided in the order that the pages come out. (If you need extra help, let me know!) Sorry for being MIA, but…

My 8th Grade Math students loved this activity! It was the perfect way to review the angle pairs created by parallel lines cut by a transversal. This was so much better than a math worksheet. I will definitely be doing this Geometry activity again.

Hi! I'm Marlene a teacher and blogger at I Heart Teaching Elementary. I share classroom tips, ideas and lessons that I do in my classroom.

Transformations project as an assessment

Unit Rate Math Project. Students are given a real chocolate fudge recipe, prices from two different grocery stores and asked to find the better buy for their employer "Sweetness Bakery". This project reinforces basic adding, subtraction, multiplication and division skills as well as decimals, rates and unit rate to solve all the math questions in this package. (\$)

I want to give my current GCSE year 10 class more practice on identifying angles in parallel lines; alternate, corresponding and co-interior. I have put together the following worksheet that gets t…

Interactive notebook pages for reflections and rotations in high school geometry

This station activity is used at the end of a transformation unit. As a class, we have explored translations, reflections, rotations and dilations. The stations can be used as an opportunity for students to work collaboratively in order to discuss the problems. I encourage students to use math vocabulary as much as possible. I also take advantage of the opportunity to emphasize positive peer relationships.

This escape room style activity provides students with a collaborative way to review solving basic one and two-step equations. Included are eight challenges that require students to solve basic equations to find codes that will unlock each puzzle.

I did this cut & paste Algebraic Proof activity with my Geometry students and they loved it! Such a fun way to work on Algebraic Proofs and the Algebraic Properties of Equality. We glued them in our interactive notebooks and they really seem to help the students remember how to set up Proofs. I will definitely be doing this activity every year when we start the Proof & Reasoning chapter in High School Geometry. Love!!!

This was designed as a resource that could be used without running any copies. You can project this onto a whiteboard page by page and allow the students to work along in groups or independently on notebook paper. However, if you would like to print this for use at centers, it should work just as ...
