Energising Smart Starters - Pre-Algebra
Motivational Exercises to Stimulate the Brain
Smart Starter activities change "extra" moments in a classroom into teachable moments. They are designed to be completed in short amounts of time. However, Smart Starters are NOT short on substance. The Smart Starters in this book are packed full of vitally important skills to practise and polish or to reinforce and extend.
Kick-Off A New Unit
The Smart Starters are grouped by general topics and skill areas. One or more of them might help to ease students into a new area of study. For instance, start off your unit on mathematical expressions with What's That You Said? or a graphing unit with No Picnic.
Spark A Longer Lesson
All starters can be expanded and extended. A Smart Starter may inspire your students to develop questions or examples along the same lines, expanding the warm-up into a full-blown maths lesson.
Review a Concept
Dust off those rusty skills with a Smart Starter. For instance: Have your students been away from the study of number concepts for a while? Refresh and deepen what they know about real numbers with The Quick Line-Up or Disorderly Calculations.
Charge-Up Thinking Skills & Ignite Creativity
The Smart Starters are not only for maths class. Use them any time to stimulate minds. Doing a Smart Starter will sharpen thinking processes and challenge brains. In addition, Smart Starters work well as starting points for students to create other similar questions and problems.
