Here are Cornell Notes and a maze activity on solving two-step equations (including those with fraction coefficients). For the maze, the answer they get to one problem leads them to the next problem. My students really enjoyed this and preferred it over the traditional drill practice.
This set of ten word problems is based on general gift giving and contains no particular religious or cultural background. The pages are decorated with symbols from a variety of winter holidays. Word problems give context to the solving of math problems, increasing their relevancy to students.
This fifteen minute activity is one of my favorites! The engaging activity has students discussing the 7.SP.C.5 and 7.SP.C.6 learning targets. Students will circulate throughout the room talking to nine different classmates. Students will find someone who can do or explain what’s asked for in the box (one person per box). The student will ask the person to initial one box and to describe the answer to the problem. The other student will summarize and write what was explained.
If you're looking for a challenge for your students, this is the product for you. These 24 task cards ask your students to find the missing number in each problem. They have to remember to use the correct order as they work through to find the missing number.
In this activity, students will find the volume of prisms and pyramids. This chain activity is a great alternative to a worksheet. Students will cut the problems apart along the lines and work the card labeled "Start" and find their answer on the top of another card.
