Graph Paper

posted Mar 19, 2010, 6:06 AM by Matt Harmless

Even though the Printable Paper site is loaded with different sorts of graphs, I haven't found any with individual graphs.  So, I made my own.



Feel free to copy, edit and use.

Printable Paper

posted Mar 18, 2010, 9:16 AM by Matt Harmless

Up at the top of the list of useful sites is Printable Paper.

I have found a few other sites that offer free downloadable graph paper and isometric dot paper and such, but this one has way more to offer than any of the others.  It has several different graphs with different styles.  There is notebook paper, note paper, budgets, printable games, and on and on...

If you are looking for a certain format, you should check this one out.

Know of any other printable paper sites?

McDougal Littell Geometry Postulates and Theorems

posted Mar 17, 2010, 7:23 AM by Matt Harmless   [ updated Mar 17, 2010, 7:42 AM ]

I am currently using McDougal Littell's Geometry book for all of my Geometry classes. Since I allow my students to use a copy of the Postulates and Theorems on their tests, I thought it could be helpful to have a copy of those in a Google Doc.  So, I typed them up and published them.

I have a website devoted to my current school and students, so if you visit my Geometry Page you will see those Postulates and Theorems broken down by Chapter.  

I also have some other useful Geometry tools and links on that site, so swing by and see if there is anything that you could use.

If you ever want to learn how to use Google's tools to make a site and/or documents for your classroom, let me know.

Pi Day Resources

posted Mar 8, 2010, 8:39 AM by Matt Harmless

I have updated my Pi Site to include a few new Pi Day Resources for Teachers.

I have a 40 page printable Pi, available as a Google Presentation or as a pdf.

I also have a list of bonus point ideas available for editing.  (I believe that this one was originally created by a retired teacher named Esther Rhodes.)





20 Question Bubble Answer Sheet

posted Feb 17, 2010, 6:38 AM by Matt Harmless

In my math books there are some practice problems that are meant to be similar to the state math tests.  In order to give my students more practice with these standardized tests, I have been using these questions.  When I use just a couple with a larger homework, it isn't that big of a deal, but lately I have wanted to more accurately simulate the "testing experience" so I made a 20 question bubble sheet.


Gross Games?!?

Do you like Gross Games?  I do.  

I snagged the title from a former principal (at Faith Christian School) who would do "gross games" at the beginning of the year retreat.  I loved it... and the kids really seemed to enjoy it and look forward to what sort of "gross games" he would come up with each year.

I instituted some "gross games" of my own down at Blue Ridge Christian Academy when we started the Turkey Lock-In.  I needed a good resource for these games, because I love playing them but don't have the time to sit around and brainstorm gross things.

So I share with you my favorite resource for gross games:


(It isn't as bad as it sounds.)

Fantastic Flexible Foldables

I was trying to think of a way to describe this site, but I keep coming up lacking.  Basically there are several little "booklets" that you can print off and if you fold them the correct way, it turns into an excellent study tool.  There are several topics covered.  To really get it, you will need to go check it out.


(I found this site through iLearn Technology.)

Free Algebra I Worksheets!

posted Oct 20, 2009, 7:29 AM by Matt Harmless

I am always looking for free worksheets!  I just found this site with some free pdf worksheets.  Normally there are only partial worksheets or worksheets with watermarks.  This one had some complete worksheets with answer keys.

The site is run by Kutasoftware.  I think that they offer a program that you can download to generate your own worksheets and these are just samples, but it is a big set of samples on a variety of topics.



Grid-Lined

Here is an automatic Grid-lined paper generator.  http://incompetech.com/graphpaper/gridlined/  It generates a pdf page that is lined with grids (I guess that is how you would describe this).  That means it is savable and printable.  This one could come in really handy, so I thought I would share it with you.

Sermon on Parenting

posted Mar 10, 2009, 5:10 AM by Mister Harmless

I don't normally do this, but I would like to recommend a sermon on parenting.  It isn't an all-encompassing teaching on parenting, but more of a foundation.  It is worth a listen... At least listen to the first 15 minutes.

Click Here to listen to it.  (You can also right-click and choose save to listen to it later.
