### FREE MATH LESSON - “FOIL Free Activity”

by Mathspiration

Differentiate and add versatility to helping students practice multiplying binomials with the FOIL technique.

This is the free version of FOIL: Luck of the Draw

This version includes the easy level strips, but not the medium, or challenge levels which allow further differentiation according to skill/ability level. If you would like to further differentiate you should purchase the full version

Students will draw two binomial slips from the difficulty level they are using and then FOIL the binomials on the strips. Students will then return the slips to the cups and draw again.

There are several ways you can use this activity:
1) General practice where students can work in groups, pairs, or individually.
a. You can separate students into ability groups for tiered differentiation.
b. Set out all three levels (labeled on the cups) in the room and allow students to choose which sets to use.
d. Or use stations for students to progressively build up to more challenging problems.
2) As a game in small groups where students can race to find the solution based on the slips drawn. The other group members also complete the problem/check the solutions and act as referees. Students can take turns racing and refereeing.
3) As a game in a whole class setting where student race to find the correct solution and the rest of the class follows along, or the whole class responds with individual white boards. Or the class can race the teacher.

Included in the activity is an answer sheet for students to record their responses. Suggestions to expand the activity and include higher level thinking and easy level binomials strips (color coded only).

There is no answer key provided because the nature of the game creates a large number of possible correct answers...too large to effectively check with any answer key.

### FREE MATH LESSON - “Free Counting Song 1-20 (MP3)”

by Renee Dawn

How do you get kids to behave, calm down, clean up, transition, do homework, time out, stand and stretch? It’s all made easier with a soothing voice counting the numbers 1 – 20 over relaxing music with a soft beat.

This “magic timer” counts numbers like a heartbeat. It is one beat per second, plus intro and fade-out; one minute of music in all. It’s a great behavior management tool to help kids calm their minds and focus on the task at hand. You can replay it for an extended countdown.

It’s also perfect for teaching kids to count numbers 1-20, as the pronunciation is slow, clear and correct.

It’s not just for kids! If you would like a minute of relaxation, then cup your palms over your eyes as you listen to this…

It’s FREE, so enjoy it...and if you would kindly leave your rating and feedback it would be greatly appreciated!

I hope you find this MP3 useful and helpful, and if you’d like to try the longer version it’s here:

### Easter STEM Challenge: Nice Nest

Q: Aside from the obvious, what can one do with toilet paper?

A: Build a nice nest, of course!

In this STEM design challenge, students work against a Criteria & Constraints list to build a nest of highest possible capacity using primarily super-cheap TP.  Kids love this one because it's a little silly, really challenging, and a lot of fun!  Inspiration sometimes comes from the strangest places!  It's up to you whether to stay true to the suggested materials or branch out and do as the birds do, searching the ground for supplemental nest materials.

You can take this idea and run with it on your own, or you can find more support in the prepared lesson challenge or in the Easter STEM Olympics blog:

• Materials List
• Criteria & Constraints List
• Discussion questions
• Design analysis handouts
• Modifications to increase/decrease difficulty for grades 2 - 8
• Post-design extension ideas in the prepared lesson challenge
