FREE MATH LESSON - Math Mania Weekly Math Review

by Sunny Days
1st - 5th Grade

This is a great way to introduce, review and keep skills fresh in the mind of your students. You choose a number of the week and the students use that number to complete 12 essential skills with it each week. I like to use the number of days we have been in school or the date of a student's birthday or holiday.
Each week my students complete the Math Mania activity which is attached to this Notebook file in PDF form. Just open the Notebook file, and look for the paper clip under the gallery. You will find the printable sheet for the students there.
I use this file to introduce the activity to my students as we complete it together the first few weeks of school. 
Eventually, my students complete these activities 
on their own and I use this file to correct it with 
them and address misconceptions.
Skills addressed include
-numbers in word form and expanded form
-odd and even
-place value
-fact families
-adding and subtracting

This is a free sample of one of the word wheels from my 13 CVC WHIRLY WORD WHEELS which help students to merge the beginning consonant sound to the VC ending in these one-syllable words for beginners who can identify letter sounds, but need practice to merge the sounds together to form words. Each word wheel has colorful illustrations of words in the wheel and each wheel uses each of the vowels a, e, i, o, and u as the middle sounds. The illustrations and colors chosen are varied to appeal to both boys and girls. Instructions for assembly are included. - Nyla’s Crafty Teaching.

FREE MATH LESSON - Tiling - 2 Digit X 1 Digit Multiplication Puzzle - FREE

 by Heidi Raki
3rd - 6th Grade

Are you looking for a creative new way to have your students practice multiplication? Try Tiling! In Tiling activities, students will use the provided "digit tiles" to place the numbers 0 - 9 to fill in the holes left in provided multiplication equations. While trying to figure out where the missing numbers go, students will work on basic facts, properties of multiplication and problem solving skills.
This is just one puzzle, which will ALWAYS remain FREE. If you want more puzzles, look for the tiling packets at my store. These packets include 10 different Tiling Worksheets, each with it's own answer key. These packets can be found for multiplying: 2 digit numbers by 1 digit numbers; 1 digit by 1 digit; 3 and 4 digit by 1 digit; 2 digit by 2 digit and 3 and 4 digit by 1 digit.
Tested with real students in the classroom of Heidi Raki.

FREE SCIENCE LESSON - Advanced Placement (AP) Biology Review PPT: Organic Compounds

by Science Stuff
11th - 12th Grade

This is not a teaching powerpoint. This powerpoint is suitable for Advanced Placement Biology classes that need a quick review over a particular topic. Several months before the AP Biology exam, I begin to run through these short powerpoints to start my students on the road to reviewing for the exam in May. Each powerpoint is a set of questions followed by the answer. As the exam approaches, I spend 10 to 15 minutes each class period running through the questions on these review powerpoints. Keeping previously taught material fresh in the mind of the student is key to scoring well on the AP exam.
This powerpoint would not be suitable for teaching the material for the first time. This powerpoint is simply a question followed by the answer. It covers what I consider to be the main points and ideas for each topic.
This particular powerpoint contains 71 slides with 71 questions and answers. It covers the following topics:
1. Organic compounds: Definition, types, the role of carbon, carbon backbones
2. Characteristics of carbon
3. Functional groups
4. The building blocks of organic compounds: sugars, fatty acids, glycerol, amino acids, and nitrogen bases.
5. Polymer principles: macromolecules, polymers, monomers, dehydration reactions, hydrolysis reactions
6. Carbohydrates: general structure, type of sugars, structural and storage polysaccharides, starch, glycogen, cellulose, chitin.
7. Lipids: general structure, hydrophobic, hydrophilic, saturated and unsaturated, uses of lipids, phospholipids, waxes and cholesterol.
8. Proteins: general structure, amino acids, levels of protein organization, uses of proteins, denaturation of proteins.
The powerpoint is based on the 8th edition of Biology by Campbell and Reece.
Other AP Biology Review Powerpoints Include:
