Some Warm Up Files

I was asked when I gave my last presentation about my Warm Up routine about the files I use. I have always given out my Daily Warm Up Sheet files, but I realized I hadn’t given the actual files. It didn’t occur to me that others would want them, too. Oops! So I put them all in this Google Drive folder because some of the files are too big for uploading here.

Warm Up Files Google Drive Folder

Some notes about the files:

Formatting – I have a .flipchart file and a .pdf of everything. The flipcharts work with the program ActivInspire, which runs on the Promethean Boards we have at my school. I did a quick Google search about converting .flipchart to SMARTboard files and it looks like it’s possible, but I didn’t really look much further.

Set – All I did was take screenshots from the Set app on my iPad and send put them into my template in the flipchart. Looking back, I wish I had made the template just a little prettier. It gets the job done, though. Before I had a Promethean Board or even the thought of getting ahead with the images, I would just go to the website in the morning and just click from setgame.com.

Patterns – all taken from visualpatterns.org. I just took screenshots of one step and then a screenshot of the rest.

Estimation – I just project my desk arrangement on the board. Yours probably is different.

Not Just Dead White Dudes – I also show these on Fridays, so I figured I’d include them. I got most of the images from Sean @MrCoreyMath. He shared his mathematician posters with us when I was at PCMI in 2017. He said it’s ok to share the folder that he put together: Sean’s Mathematician Folders. The pdf of this file will not be awesome because in order to fit some of the images I have to put them in the range outside of the print area. So sorry about that.

Hope this helps!

Oui, il y a plus avec mes échauffements.

Thinking Mathematically From Minute One (Presentation 2019)

I LOVE WARM UPS!

Here’s a presentation I gave about them. It’s been fun sharing with people how I structure my warm ups. If I could, I think I would do all of them all day every day. I love them, the learners love them, and real math conversations happen because of them. I also wrote more about them in this post: Some Warm Up Files.

WIU Thinking Mathematically From Minute One Presentation 4/13/18

I miss blogging a lot. I am looking forward to being done with my Masters in 4.5 weeks and done with wedding planning in 2.5 months so that I have some free time back. I have a lot of drafts and pictures to share – hope I can remember what they’re all about when I am ready to blog!

I am giving a presentation at Western Illinois University for the Western Illinois University Mathematics Teachers Conference about Warm Ups. I thought I might get bored of presenting about warm ups, but every time I do it I am just so excited to share!

The Google Slides presentation is below. There have been a few updates that I’ve made to my warm ups. I plan to share them on my blog soon!

Student Submitted Warm Ups 2017

My process for collecting student submitted warm ups was way better this year than before. I made a Google Form that I posted onto my class website about a month before school ended. I think it gave them 4-5 of each day they could submit for, and I just took the first completed forms. The only difference in the Google Form I’m sharing here and the one I used was that instead of asking for a sharing link, I actually had them share a file from their Google Drive, which I think is just available for schools.

This next image is the way I viewed the submissions. I had it set so that I got a notification whenever a new form was submitted. I highlighted a submission in reddish-orange if there was something about it that made it so I couldn’t use it (usually that they didn’t fully answer a part of it). I highlighted in yellow if it was good and I just still had to show it. I highlighted it in green after I showed it to the class. Unfortunately it didn’t tell me when students had changed their submission, so that was something I had to check with individuals.

I was really impressed with what students submitted! I actually only got one Would You Rather…I was really surprised that I got so many Which One Doesn’t Belongs because those are the hardest, in my opinion, to make, but when I asked it was because they liked those the best. I was also super impressed with the explanations that some students gave. There was a pretty low bar for what would be “complete” (see row 12 that just says “It shows math”) but for the most part there were really great, well thought out responses.

J’ai amélioré quelque chose!
