A wacky but creative idea for a year 8 maths class using mullets as a way of exploring ratio. Even though the idea is probably too advanced for Primary, I love the creativity and the idea of using something like 'mullets' as a way of engaging a class.
Two assessments are included in this product. The pre-assessment contains 20 multiple choice and 8 short answer questions. Each question correlates to an eighth grade math Common Core State Standard. The assessment is a great way to determine what prior knowledge students already have as they enter eighth grade. In order to collect appropriate data to use as evidence of growth, the post-assessment, given at the end of the year, is nearly identical to the pre-assessment. By Free to Discover.
Roman numerals math (my kids know how to read Roman numerals from their McGuffey’s lessons; use Popsicle sticks on the table) Big hit with 8 and 10 year old; we went up to 11.
