Winter may not be here yet but it sure is cold.  Grab one of these winter weathered themed activities. 

  

  • Solving Inequalities Santa Hat
    • This activity is similar to a walk around but is all digital. Students start at the Santa Hat labeled #1 and solve problems based on their previous answer. After solving the problems, they submit their answer order which the Google Form will self grade and a picture/document of their work.
  • Ordering Numbers Snowball Fight
    • This activity is completed on a Google Form. Students are presented with snowballs that are decimals, fractions, mixed numbers, in scientific notation or percents and must type them in order to advance. The only way to advance in the snowball fight is to get the answer correct. There are 5 questions.
  • Factoring Hot Chocolate Activity
    • This activity has students factor equations on hot chocolate mugs. The students select the marshmallows that represent the zeros. This is completed on a Google Form and will automatically grade for you. There are 15 questions for the students to factor and find the zeros. 
  • Factoring Drag and Drop Hot Chocolate
    • This is a Google Slides Activity on finding the zeros given a quadratic equation. The equations start equal to 0 and progress to harder problems where they must first get the equation in order and equal to 0. The students will drag and drop the marshmallows into the boxes above the mugs where they are answers. There are 10 total equations for students to factor and find the zeros; an answer key is included.

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

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.
