Split Screen for Access to Multiple Tabs At Once

 


Split screen saves the students and yourself from the hassle of toggling between tabs. 

Split screen for Chromebooks:

First, the students open the tabs that you want them to use.  Once they have them open they click on one tab and pull it off the others creating 2 separate windows.  On this window they click alt ] (next to P) and it will move it to the right side and 50% of the screen. Next, click on the other tab and do alt [ and it will move that tab to the left and take 50% of their screen. In between the two tabs there is a dark section, they can click and drag on this to make one side larger or smaller.

Spilt Screen for Laptops:

If you or your students are using a laptop, I suggest you get a window tiler extension.  The tiler does the same thing as above except it's a click and can do up to 4 screens.  To get the window tiler extension go to the Chrome Web Store, I use the one pictured above. Once it's added you can put it on your toolbar for quick and easy access.  When you want to use it, you pull the tab(s) off to make separate windows and click it and it will resize your tabs. 

I encourage my students to use so they have access to the calculator and the assignment.  I use it almost daily but my especially when inputting grades. I pull up the assignment on one side and the grade book on the other.  

I hope this helps you and your students.

Pixel Art with Math Problems

    A pixel art activity provides instant feedback and some excitement.  My students enjoy doing these because they can see right away if they are doing the work correct and they also like to race to figure out the picture first.    Integer Operations Add/Subtract Pixel Art This is an online activity where students complete addition and subtraction of integers. The students will input their answer in the table and a color will appear if they are correct. When the students are finished they will have a picture.   Distribute Equations Pixel Art This in an online activity that has students solve equations with the distributive property.

Free Equations Activities

    I love having my students work on activities and games instead of a traditional worksheet.  Creating or finding just the right activity to fit what I'm looking for can be a challenge.  I started making activities that my students enjoy and that allow me to pull students away for small group help.   These resources are all free to use in your classroom.       A walk around is a great activity to get the students up and about while allowing them to check their own work.  By using a walk around, students can work at their own pace, be out of their seats, and check their work.  They each start at a different problem, once working out the equation, they find their solution on another paper and complete that problem.  The students complete the problems until they end up back at their original problem.  Here is a  One Step Equations Walk Around .        A maze is a self paced activity where students move along based on their answer.  This  Two Step Equations Maze  can be done online b

Baby Yoda Pixel Art Template

  This template is set for 3 sets of answers.  I have the answers that are currently set, you will need to reformat them to use with your content.   Baby Yoda Pixel Art Template Be on the lookout for this activity given 2 ordered pairs and asking for slope, y-intercept, and the equation of a line.  I'm also formatting this for converting between percents, decimals, and fractions.  If you want to reformat it before I post the above activities here is how.
