In this post are some of the many printable algebra activities I've made over the years and their more recent digital updates. To date I have created over 200 digital math activities, many as updates to their original printable versions. Every digital version is either in Google Slides or Google Forms. You can see them all here.

Quadratic word problems task cards - printable version |

These quadratic word problems task cards were always a hit in my class. By the time we got though the activity, students had a solid understanding of when a word problem was asking for a zero or a vertex coordinate. Above is the printable version.

And the digital version of the quadratic word problems task cards are in Google Forms.

And a closeup of part of its print version. Students match linear inequalities written in both standard and slope-intercept form to their graphs.

My bestselling algebra 1 word wall also got a digital update. Here is a portion of its printable version:

Algebra Activities Bundle |

*"There are so many resources, I love that there is a ton to choose from. The digital escape rooms are so much fun! My students love them. I love that they are self checking! — Julia P"*

*"Such a comprehensive, engaging and value for money bundle as Shana is always updating resources. There are google slides and digital activities being added all the time. Students find the activities fun yet they are also learning cooperatively. I can't say enough about how Scaffolded Math and Science bundles are well worth the money. They are low prep as well. I seriously don't know how Shana creates so many good resources. She must never get to sleep! Thank you Shana."*-Sarah M

Do you have 7th grade word wall virtual yet? Thanks so much for all you do!!

ReplyDeleteI will be working on making all of the word walls virtual this summer:)

DeleteUpdate: it's updated! :)

DeleteHi, I just purchased a bunch of your activities. I'm not quite sure how to use the ones that are GoogleSlides with my remote learners. How do I assign it. We don't use Google classroom, we use Schoology. I was able to copy the links of the Escape Rooms to share with students.

ReplyDeleteThank you for asking this, I should have covered this in my post. Once you are in one of the Google Slides activities, you can "download as" and choose PowerPoint. The pieces will still move just as they do in Google Slides.

DeleteSorry, but I guess I'm technology challenged. How do I share it with individual students. Also, I'm using one of the escape room tomorrow. I put the link on Schoology for my students and it seems to work. Where do I see the data of who completed it, how do I access that?

DeleteOn the second page of the escape room file are directions for sending to students. Sending a Google Form to students is not the same as sharing Google Slides. You need to choose "send" from the teacher copy of the Form.

DeleteSo I can't just share the link with kids. We don't have Google classroom so I shared a link on Schoology. It works for kids to use but I didn't know how to see the data. That is for the Escape Room.

ReplyDeleteThe second question was how I share the one that is Google Slides with kids but I think I figured it out.

Google Forms don't work the same way as Google Slides. If you share the Form, there is no way for students to complete the assignment. Forms need to be sent. The directions inside the PDF explain the process. You click "send" and you can choose to get a link for Schoology, send via email or embed. To see student data, you'll go back into your teacher version (the one you made a copy of from the PDF) and there will be a "Responses" tab at the top.

DeleteThank you. That's what I did for the Escape Room today. I see the tab for responses. When I open it, there aren't any.

ReplyDeleteI think I know what's happening. I made and copied the link on my home computer and I'm at school. I'll check when I get home

ReplyDeleteOh that could be it. If you need it on your school computer, you can either make a new copy from the link inside the PDF or share your home copy with your school email address.

DeleteThat was it. I'm looking at responses. Does it show me all of the responses or just the ones who completed all 5 puzzles?

DeleteBecause the Form is set to answer validation, it'll just show the ones who complete all 5. That's when the "submit" button will appear. It would be cool if this changes, but I believe this is how it is for now. A workaround for kids who may not finish in one sitting is to have them jot down on paper the codes they already find so that when they sit with the activity again they can quickly retype these codes before moving on to the puzzles they hadn't yet gotten to.
