Middle School Math Curriculum Review
Reviewing in a middle school math classroom often takes one of three forms.
1) Math review games
2) Plain fluency worksheets
3) Engaging math activities

Games can be great way to review if the game is structured so that every single student is involved.  Teachers need to ensure that some students don't dominate the game, and leave the students who really need the review along for the ride. 

"Here students...here are 20 questions, sit quietly and do them, and don't forget to show your work."  Yikes, what student likes this?  and not that we need to please our students, but if we don't give them something engaging, you're going to lose their engagement. There may be a time for fluency worksheets, but review is not usually one of them.

I have found the best way to review is to provide engaging activities to your students.  Activities that are fun and have a purpose for the students. That is why I created these review packets for 7th grade math and 8th grade math. They cover a variety of topics, and engage your students.
