Here's the game I've been promising all week! Freaking Functions
See the video for a brief explanation from me of everything that is in the file.  If you use this game, I would love to have your feedback.  Thanks! What the Factor
I'm not sure if I've been absolutely clear on this or not, but my lack of posting lately can be attributed to the fact that I'm now posting a majority of the links I find now on my Scoop.it page (http://bit.ly/mathnews).  Nevertheless, here are five quick ideas that just didn't fit in over there: 1.  Create a Magazine Cover (http://bighugelabs.com/magazine.php) -- In one of my Pre-Algebra courses last year I had students create a magazine about a chapter in the textbook.  This website would have helped the groups easily make a professional looking magazine cover for their project. 2.  Create Printable…
This free on-line version of the Rush Hour Game was originally posted here at the MathCounts website (https://mathcounts.org/Page.aspx?pid=1512), who in turn got it in from the ThinkFun website (http://www.thinkfun.com/mathcounts/play-rush-hour). I remember when I first got the 'real version' of this game on a road trip during a family reunion in Canada.  Warning: This game is addictive and can be very frustrating at times. I highly reccommend this game.  I think it would make a great logic game for the classroom.
I hope you enjoy this game!  I would love to have any feedback if you decide to use it. Slope game Other Slope Resources Applets 1.  Interactive Slope Applet - Although I ran out of time to actually use this with my own class, this is a wonderful resource that lets students click and drag points such that when the line between the point changes, the calculation of the slope of the line also changes on the screen as well.  Very useful! 2.  Slope-Intercept Equation Applet - This appears to be the exact same applet I introduced to you a few weeks…
Here's the new game I created for evaluating functions.  I haven't played it with any students yet, but it has gotten a couple of test runs, and seems to be a hit among the instructors that have seen it.  If you play it, I would love to hear your feedback.  Enjoy! Function Game
I just finished this new Calculus game in anticipation of teaching a lesson on The First Fundamental Theorem of Calculus.  I'm looking to give it a good name.  Any suggestions?

A Sample Lesson on Solving a System of Equations with Two Unknowns Before you begin, you may want to print the summary sheet below for reference.  The sheet happens to have a major typo, but I think that it's usually fun for the students to discover it themselves. I've been generous enough to correct the typo. SYSTEMS OF EQUATIONS Start out by watching this introductory video about solving an application problem using the addition method.  I recommend printing out the handout of what is covered in the video so that you can take notes as you follow along.

This year on Pi Day I was teaching exponents, so I created an activity surrounding many of the common errors that I see many students make when working with expressions involving exponents.  I have attached the file to this post, and I would hope that people would know what to do with it, but let me explain anyway: 1.  I printed and cut out about 10 copies of the activity (I wanted to have the students work in groups of no more than 3).  I also like to have 1-2 extra copies because it has become seemingly noticeable with my…
