The error analysis station I borrowed from 2 places online. I'll look for the links today. Watch this evening for a followup post.Algebra's Friendhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/04729315514507170702noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8399389267815059112.post-45152191597516242752014-01-27T07:20:34.228-06:002014-01-27T07:20:34.228-06:00Andrew - love the links ... saw immediately someth...Andrew - love the links ... saw immediately something I was looking for but had not found using the standards.

I'll be hitting rational exponents in a couple weeks, so it's nice to see what you've put together.<br /><br />It took me a while to figure out how you were putting the booklet together, since I was picturing a sequence of half-page worksheet rather than a front-and-back booklet. I like the look of the book -- do you just staple down the center?<br /><br />Any chance you'll be sharing the card sort / error analysis station cards? :)Andrewhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/04677916682246619842noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8399389267815059112.post-20344278364469337752014-01-27T00:57:17.608-06:002014-01-27T00:57:17.608-06:00Under your "classes" tab you can use the...Under your "classes" tab you can use the Curriculum Filter in the Gradebook to see what Prodigi/Games are available for each standard. It doesn't have everything, and the alignment isn't always perfect, but I use it all the time for finding activities for my students.<br /><br />I also use http://www.mangahigh.com/en-us/math_games/ and more specifically http://www.mangahigh.com/en-us/math_games/algebra -- these links are a hold over from Manga High's previous organization, and so the pages aren't really accessible without the direct links (that I've seen). I have them bookmarked, because sometimes I would rather do a Ctrl+F search for a topic than click through the specific standards I'm trying to hit.Andrewhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/04677916682246619842noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8399389267815059112.post-13231622183762835552014-01-25T17:15:27.952-06:002014-01-25T17:15:27.952-06:00The Manga High activity I am using is in the Algeb...The Manga High activity I am using is in the Algebra 1 list from this organization: Prodigi: Properties of exponents and rational exponents<br />Algebra I » Foundations for functions » The student understands the importance of the skills required to manipulate symbols in order to solve problems and uses the necessary algebraic skills required to simplify algebraic expressions and solve equations and inequalities in problem situations » find specific function values, simplify polynomial expressions, transform and solve equations, and factor as necessary in problem situations. Understand the meaning of the numerator and denominator of a fractional power. Include simple/mixed fractions and decimals<br /><br />Our students have not studied fractional powers before now. <br /><br />Manga High also addresses rational functions, some trig ... I haven't checked to see if it has conics at all.Algebra's Friendhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/04729315514507170702noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8399389267815059112.post-75378999564510445622014-01-25T17:14:33.396-06:002014-01-25T17:14:33.396-06:00This comment has been removed by the author.Algebra's Friendhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/04729315514507170702noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8399389267815059112.post-20979420527993175322014-01-25T16:45:16.575-06:002014-01-25T16:45:16.575-06:00Beth, I can't find a Mange Math game for anyth...Beth, I can't find a Mange Math game for anything secondary except transformations and quadratics.
