Are your students constantly forgetting those invisible 1’s?
How many times have you had to remind them? 100? 1000?
Put these posters on your bulletin board and you will notice your students referencing them constantly. They will be your most valuable posters!
These are hard concepts to grasp for some students. It’s VERY helpful to have a reference on the wall.
This is a beautiful display that looks good in any classroom. Print it on card stock, laminate it, and keep it for years. This will come in handy year after year.
Implied ones can baffle even the best of them. When you can’t see them, they are easily forgotten.
Don’t let your students leave their ones behind!
I was inspired to create Invisible Math when my students were combining like terms, so it was crucial that they recognized those invisible 1’s.
I created Invisible Math five years ago. It didn’t get much attention until last fall – in autumn of 2018 Invisible Math went VIRAL, and now it’s on the wall of thousands of math classrooms across the world.
Teachers are IN LOVE with these posters!
Over 700+ Perfect Reviews (with new reviews posted every day), and they all sound like this:
These are my favorite things in my classroom this year! The information is truly useful for students. I printed on brightly colored cardstock, laminated, and they look fantastic!
This is amazing! I am constantly reminding my students of these little tidbits, but I can tell they are not truly absorbing the information when I speak it quickly. I can’t wait to hang these up in my new room!
Why are they so in love with it? Because their students need it. It’s taking a huge weight off their shoulders.
Students need constant reminders about this! Until now!
If you don’t download it from me, you should at least copy it by hand and then make your own. Students are often forgetting these rules! They need this reference on the wall!
This is the list of topics covered by Invisible Math:
- There is a decimal point at the end of every whole number.
- There is a positive sign to the left of every number with no sign.
- There is a denominator of one for all numbers.
- There is a coefficient of one in front of any variables with no number already there.
- There is an exponent of one on every number.
- Any nonzero number to the zero power equals one.
- There is a multiplication sign between every coefficient and variable.
- If there is a negative one to the left of a variable, it is the same as negative one times the variable.
- Every radical has an index of two unless there is another index.
- One over a variable is the same as the variable to the negative first power.
- Multiplication Signs
- Division Signs
There’s a handout to go with it:
How can you use this handout?
- Three-whole punch this handout and give to students for them to put in their binders.
- Use in your interactive notebook.
- Option 1: cut out the cards and paste into their interactive notebook
- Option 2: fold in half and paste into the notebook.
- Option 3: reduce the size of the handout before making copies.
