Algebra Practice for Virtual Learning

Wow, what a crazy time! Covid-19 has turned our world upside down. I saw a post today commending other teachers for providing their resources for free during this time. It shouldn’t take a pandemic for us to take care of each other. I have always provided everything for free. We need to support each other when we are not in crisis just as much as we do now. Ok, stepping off my soap box.

Below are many of the Algebra 1 activities my team and I have created for our practice days. These are days when students can work on whichever standards they need additional practice with. A few of the resources are virtual manipulatives.

Maybe you are looking for review material. Maybe you want to supplement an online activity. Please use these to make your life a little easier.

Manipulatives

Algebra Tiles           Balancing Equations

Solving

Equations             Inequalities       More Inequalities       Literal Equations

Linear Model      Absolute Value    Absolute Value with Notes

Systems

by Substitution         by Elimination         Which method?

Systems of Inequalities            Systems Word Problems

Graphing

Identify Functions   Function or Not    Linear, Inequalities, and Quadratics

Parallel and Perpendicular Exploration        Parallel and Perpendicular

Transformations of Functions

Quadratics

Factoring and Adding Polynomials    Quadratic Formula     Polynomial Area &  Volume

Teachers are amazing! Be well, be safe, be sane!

  2. Thank you so much for sharing! What are the directions that you give students? Do they just make a copy and go through it themselves, not in Present mode, using it as notes, similar to a powerpoint presentation? I’m looking for ways to use Google Slides to act as a self-checking system. Thank you again for sharing!

    1. I post it on Google Classroom and set it to make a copy for each student. They work at their own pace, checking and correcting as they go. You can also have them submit a picture of their work if you want. I usually follow it up with a short “quiz” in Google Forms.

  3. I feel silly asking. I don’t really understand how these work. How are the students working through the slides? If it’s in presentation mode they can’t move the sliders around. I’m sorry I’m so confused! They look so amazing but I don’t really get how to use them.

    1. Students do work through them on their own. You don’t use them in present mode. I actually rarely use present mode. And it’s not a silly question, I’m glad you asked.
