Algebra Games: Great middle school teacher resources! This website gives 10 lessons under the theme of “Algebra Games.” Each day has a themed worksheet created by Heather Krey on a pre-algebra topic, such as fractions, integers, order of operations, one- and two-step equations, and plotting points. There are also links to related games that allow students to practice these concepts and have some fun at the same time. Some games are printable pdfs and others are online.
Mission Trigonometry: Your mission, should you choose to accept, is to prepare students who have never studied trigonometry for the SAT and ACT. The worksheets below should help. Good luck. In all seriousness… I created these worksheets for a 12-day summer skill builder class. They are not SAT or ACT specific, but they are intended to only cover the topics on these tests rather than all of trig.
