Unfortunately for authors and publishers (including myself), Amazon has made some major changes which are going to significantly hurt our revenue stream, thus making it very difficult for us to continue to fund new projects. Therefore, I am going to have to stop dedicating my time to writing new books.

This one is for the math teachers. Sticking with the unicorn theme, I just made a math activity for those of you teaching algebra.

This activity consists of 5 levels of problems all involving solving linear equations. Each level consists of 9 problems. Each problem comes with a puzzle piece, and the solution to the problem tells you where to place the piece. I prefer to have the students simply draw the piece in the appropriate place in the answer grid, but you can also have them paste the piece in. The final result is a unicorn head, as displayed on the cover above.

Problems start out with very simple equations and proceed to more difficult word problems that are consistent with the types of problems students will see on standardized tests such as the SAT. In fact, students that can solve all of the problems given in this activity will have no trouble with SAT math problems about solving linear equations.

The cost for this activity is $3.99, and it is available in my teachers pay teachers store here: Solving Linear Equations - Unicorn Puzzle Activity

The levels of the problems are as follows:

Level 1: One-step equations

Level 2: Two-step equations

Level 3: Distributive property and combining like terms

Level 4: Variable on both sides of the equation

Level 5: Word problems

I'm planning to release a new SAT math book in about 1 month from now. This is my most ambitious project yet. The book will have 48 lessons with 500 problems, followed by 500 more problems in a workbook format. All together the book will contain 1000 SAT math problems with full explanations.
