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!
To prepare for our end of the unit assessment, I assigned my students a BreakoutEDU Digital to review the concepts that we had covered throughout our Geometry unit. Before I created the BreakoutEDU, I asked my students for ideas on the “theme” of the next BreakoutEdu. One of the most interesting ideas that I heard… Read More GeoWorld Smashboard: A BreakoutEDU Digital
A couple of weeks ago, my students were asking when we would have another BreakoutEDU Digital in our math classroom since the last one we had done was in early February. Before you begin thinking that I don’t like BreakoutEDU Digitals, I have to tell you – I absolutely LOVE using BreakoutEDU Digital in our… Read More Escape the Dungeon!

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
The Road Trippin’ Follow Up A few weeks ago, I wrote about an upcoming HyperDoc I created to help students explore ratios, rates, proportion, and scale factor. In this HyperDoc, students were introduced and applied their knowledge of these concepts by creating their own Road Trip. (To read more about this HyperDoc and get your… Read More Follow Up: Road Trippin’ HyperDoc
Geometry is one of my favorite units to teach. In this unit, there are so many ways to create lessons, activities, and projects that are easily aligned to the real world. 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!
HyperDocs are becoming one of my favorite things in education. It is such an amazing tool to incorporate technology in a purposeful way that promotes student learning and engagement. One of the things that I love about the HyperDoc model is that there is a focus on creating digital lessons that go through various stages… Read More Road Trippin’: A Ratios & Proportions HyperDoc
HyperDocs are quickly becoming one of my favorite things in education. As the HyperDocs website states: HyperDocs, a transformative, interactive Google Doc replacing the worksheet method of delivering instruction, is the ultimate change agent in the blended learning classroom. As a major blended learning classroom advocate, I am finding that HyperDocs are becoming a way… Read More Systems of Equations HyperDoc: Comparing Cell Phone Plans
