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. Several of the equations also require knowledge of combining like terms after distributing. Students solve the problem and type the answer in the table, if they are correct a color will appear. When the table is filled they will have a picture. One Step Equations Pixel Art This activity is done online in Google Sheets. The students solve each equatio

Pixel Art Activities

    If you are looking for students to practice multiple concepts at once with instant feedback these 2 activities would be great. The first activity hast students write the equation of a line given 2 points.  They start by finding the slope, then the y-intercept, and finally writing the equation.  Each piece along the way will color the picture if they are correct.  I like this instant feedback because my student tend to get frustrated if they do all the work and then when I check it we realize their slope was wrong so they have to start at the beginning again. The second activity is on percent, decimals, and fractions.  This activity requires students to convert between the 3 along with making the fractions mixed numbers.  This is great for middle school classes to practice.  My students tend to struggle with which way to move the decimal so this instant feedback helps them check their answers as they go.   Writing Equations of a Line - Baby Yoda Pixel Art Percent, Decimal, Fraction
