I have also used them during whole group instruction – I pass out all seven posters and then have the seven students get themselves in the correct order at the front of the room. The students that are seated can help if they are having difficulty. Repeat until everyone has had a turn.

Any questions? Don’t hesitate to ask.

FREE MATH LESSON – “Why We Can’t Divide by Zero!”

by Scipi – Science and Math

5th – 8th Grade

 

 

One day, a student of mine, a mathphobic to be sure, asked, “Why can’t I divide by zero?” Promptly I gave him the answer that any good mathematician would. “You can’t divide by zero because 0 is undefined. It just cannot be done.” Well, that went over like a lead balloon; so, I knew it was time to sit and down and write out a plausible but understandable explanation that my students could understand.

That is what this two page free resource is – a sequential step-by-step explanation of why you cannot divide by zero. It starts off out by explaining what division is and how it relates to multiplication. It concludes with a simple visual to help the students remember the difference between 0 being in the numerator and 0 being in the denominator.

FREE MATH LESSON – “Math Workshop: Exit Ticket Poster”

by Spot On Teaching

Kindergarten – 6th Grade

❤ ❤ ❤ Thank you for downloading this freebie! ❤ ❤ ❤

Closure is an extremely important, but often skipped, part of guided math. Students need time to reflect on the strategies they used during work time, ask questions, and discuss strategies with the class. This is also a great way to informally assess your students to guide your instruction.

Assign each student a number. They will write their reflection on a post it note and place it in the numbered box.

Tip: If you teach more than one class, use a different color post it note for each class.

Feel Free to share this freebie with your friends and colleagues!
