In this post, I will be sharing resources from our Geometry unit which covers ratios, proportions, area, surface area, volume, and angle relationships. As a disclaimer, this unit is not organized in a way that you would traditionally see it in a Math 7 classroom. The class that I teach is aligned to the Common… Read More Unit 5: Geometry- More Resources for Flipping!
Let’s Get Them Exploring One of my goals this year was to create more activities for students to explore upcoming content. I want the students to interact with the material, think about it, and explore the content before they are taught those concepts. As I have mentioned in previous posts, I truly believe that there is… Read More Exploring Surface Area: A Google Slides Activity
The Follow Up: A couple of weeks ago, I shared an Area of Shapes Scavenger Hunt that I created for my students to use during our upcoming Geometry Unit. (To read more about this activity, view my “Area of Shapes Scavenger Hunt via Google Slides” post. As always, I find it is important to reflect on… Read More Follow Up: Area of Shapes Scavenger Hunt

I’m not saying that is not the case for other units but I do have to get a little creative when we start working… Read More Area of Shapes Scavenger Hunt via Google Slides
Today I will be sharing the resources from our fourth Unit, which covers functions, slope, linear equations and linear systems. The class that I teach is aligned to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) but it is an 7th grade Math Honors course that contains all of the 7th grade standards and the majority of the… Read More Unit 4: Linear Functions & Equations – More Resources for Flipping!
Today I will be sharing the resources from our third Unit, which covers square roots, exponents, and scientific notation! The class that I teach is aligned to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) but it is an 7th grade Math Honors course that contains all of the 7th grade standards and the majority of the… Read More Exponents & Roots: Google Slides & Resources for Flipping!
My students are currently finishing our Unit 2: Expressions & Equations Unit. I was really thrilled will my students progress with equations this year. In the past, it has been very common for this to be one of the more difficult units, but my students have really understood the material this year. On one hand,… Read More Expressions & Equations Unit: More Google Slides & Resources for Flipping!
Last year, I jumped into the Flipped Classroom world and I never came back out. I love my flipped classroom! More importantly, the students love it! Before the flipped classroom, the homework was always an assignment with a set of problems. (That’s not to say that this doesn’t occur anymore, it’s just less than it… Read More The Number System: Google Slides for Flipping
