I know that my students are coming in at only 12% Proficient in Math. This means that they are going to need a lot of review on the concepts they should know from 7th Grade. Our pacing in 8th Grade Math is already tight, and unfortunately I do not have time to go back and reteach these concepts in depth. I do pace in a couple of review days, and I give the students guided notes on these concepts so that they have a reference and a lot of practice.
In checking for understanding during the last two days, my students now understand the concepts of Combining Like Terms and Solving Two-step Equations but are not successful because they are making mistakes with the Integer Rules.
I gave my students an Integer Rules Graphic Organizer for them to reference, but they are still confusing the rules for addition and multiplication. I did notice that when my students are solving equations and using the inverse operation, they get confused which rule applies when the terms are stacked for addition in step one, and division in step two.
So I wanted to create some review quizzes to practice the integer rules when they are next to each other like when combining like terms, and when they are stacked like when solving equations. I have created a weeks worth of Google Form Integer Rules Review Quizzes.
Here are the links to my Google Form Integer Rules Review Quizzes.
