# April 2024’s New Teacher Tools

It’s April and there’s no fooling anyone: spring is in full bloom! We are in the homestretch of the school year and are getting ready to finish up our courses and begin reviewing for end-of-year assessments. We still have some new materials to make teaching easier for teachers, so let’s get at them in our latest blog post:

• Unit 10 (Solids) – Practice with the Volume of Right Rectangular Prisms. This is a nice set of problems that gives students a lot of practice calculating volumes, especially of prisms that have sides with fractional lengths.
• Unit 11 (Statistics) – Mid-Unit Quiz – Form B.
• Unit 11 (Statistics) – Practice Creating Histograms. In this worksheet, students summarize data sets visually using histograms. In some problems, students decide if the x-axis needs and axis break and an appropriate scale for the x-axis.
• Spanish Language Versions of the Unit 11 Mid-Unit Quiz (Form A only) and Exit Tickets.
• Unit 10 (Geometric Measurement)Mid-Unit Quiz – Form B.
• Unit 10 (Geometric Measurement) – Practice with Volumes of Prisms. This worksheet gives students practice with calculating the volumes of right prisms. Bases have shapes of both parallelograms and right triangles.
• Spanish Language Versions of the Unit 10 Mid-Unit Quiz (Form A only) and Exit Tickets.
• Unit 10 (Scientific Notation) – Mid-Unit Quiz – Form B.
• Unit 10 (Scientific Notation) – Practice with Applying Scientific Notation. This is a wonderful worksheet full of problems that ask students to use scientific notation in real-world situations. Examples include the number of people worldwide that have green eyes and the unit rate of donuts consumed in the United States.
• Unit 11 (Systems of Equations)Mid-Unit Quiz – Form B.
• Spanish Language Versions of the Unit 10 and Unit 11 Mid-Unit Quiz (Form A only) and Exit Tickets.
• Unit 10 (Functions and Their Transformations) – Unit Assessment – Form B.
• Unit 10 (Functions and Their Transformations) – Mid-Unit Quiz – Form A.
• Unit 9 (Circle Geometry) – Unit Assessment – Form A.
• Unit 9 (Circle Geometry) – Exit Tickets
• Unit 9 (Circle Geometry) Tangent Circles Exploration. In this exploration, students see how for every triangle, there are three mutually tangent circles that can be constructed. This activity not only illustrates another remarkable connection between triangles and circles, but also reinforces the construction of the incircle for any triangle.
• Unit 12 (Probability) – Practice with Adding Probabilities. This worksheet gives students a plethora of problems to reinforce how probabilities add in “or” probability/counting scenarios. Through various applied problems, students solve for all parts of the addition probability rule.

Thanks for checking out April 2024’s New Teacher Tools — we hope they help!
