This Ugly Sweater Party Christmas plotting points picture worksheet would be the perfect activity for my Middle School Math students right before Winter break.  I love doing activities like this with my High School Algebra & Math students as well.  I'm going to let them color them and then use them as classroom Christmas decorations!  This will be a great way to get some coordinate graphing practice while still getting ready for Winter Break.

Circle Basics Unit (Part 1)

We split up our circles unit into 2 parts (Part 1: Circle Basics, Circumference & Area, Area of Shaded Regions, & Tangent Lines; Part 2: Arcs, Central Angles, Chords, Sector Area, Arc Length, and Segment Area). I know a majority of schools teach circles as one big unit but I don't think that most of my special education students could remember all of those theorems and rules and be successful. For those that teach circles as one big unit and your students are successful, can you show me a…

I then had all of the students stand up and pretend to be the "muscle man".  We then pretended to lift the weights and then drop them.  Next, I told them that someone put on too much weight on the left side of the bar.  They had to show me what would happen to the "muscle man".  They all tipped right over!  We continued with a few other scenarios until I could see that they all understood the balancing aspect of a muscle man. From there, I had them paste the "muscle man" into their ISN…
