I always make two versions of a test and pass them out checkerboard style. I ask students to show work on tests or quizzes. This test was based on the learning objectives of each lesson in this unit and reflects the Practice Test. Please watch my Video Narrative discussing a particularly interesting test question.
This assessment was created with Kuta Software which is an amazing resource for any mathematics teacher.
I offer a variety of extra credit puzzles puzzle for students who finish early and have no make up work to complete. This includes, but is not limited to; sudoku, mathdoku, logic problems, picture mazes, and pixel puzzles. A couple of my favorites are: Griddlers and Conceptis puzzles
Both sites offer a number of free puzzles as well as purchasable books. Pixel Puzzle are a particular favorite. The Mathdoku are also great. They can increase a student's numeracy abilities if done regularly.
