One of the best ways to teach students about benchmarks with fractions is using a number line. Once students master the placements of these fractions, they can start working on adding fractions, subtracting and eventually can use multiplication and divisi
Grade Frolics: Rotations, Reflections, and Translations - Math Art!
This Language of Math poster has helped my Algebra students so much over the years. One of the hardest things in Algebra - or any math course, really - are word problems. Once students see that word problems can be directly translated into symbols, and that those symbols turn into solvable equations, Algebra really starts to make sense! I made this Language of Math poster to help students translate word problems into equations to solve. Here is the version I printed for my classroom:
This is a great site for all grade school level students. It has many interactive games and learning tools, and other hands-on tools for ADHD students. This site is easy for students to use during computer time.
Each kiddo got a large index card and divided it into 4 squares. The first box just has their first initial. The second has a slide, the bottom left a reflection, and the bottom right a 90 degree rotation.
This worksheet was created for first graders to use when practicing flips, slides, and turns. Pattern blocks are needed to complete this activity.Sounds crazy, I know, but my GT graders couldn't wrap their heads around rotational symmetry last year!
