One of the biggest challenges with teaching is differentiating within a large class, especially when there is a broad scope of abilities and levels! Once upon a time, I was in a teaching role that involved seeing 220 students a week across K-6! I had to teach different math topics to other groups and wouldn't have much time to prep from class to class. Being the teacher kids only saw once a week for a couple of hours meant that I needed a lesson that would quickly engage them to make the most of our learning time. This teaching experience is why I decided to create Math Mysteries. To differentiate and cater to the different classrooms, I usually designed editions of the same mystery in various grade levels. This post will show you how easy it is to differentiate with my math mystery resources in your classroom. I'll also show you where to grab a full FREE differentiated Math Mystery set to see how it works!
New Back to School Math Problem Prompt Cards - Free Set of 30! Plus how to use them in the digital classroom
I've just finished uploading a new set of 'What's the Math Question?' prompt cards (free to download in my shop). This new set has a back to school theme, making it an ideal activity to do if you are about to start a new school year.
These math prompt cards would traditionally be printed and laminated to use in the classroom. However, this year, some of you may be teaching your class online! So, in this post, I'll outline a suggestion as to how you can still use these math prompt cards for distance teaching.
Several months ago someone requested a rainy day math mystery, and I had the suggestion sitting in my 'to-make' list for quite a while before I could get around to developing the mystery story, activity and video hook for it. But now, I'm happy to say, it's finally almost ready and on the way! Read on for a sneak peek into the mystery story and video hook.
