Operation of Fractions and Whole Numbers Review

We will be having our 3rd 6 Weeks Assessment tomorrow, so I wanted to take time to review.  I decided to have the classes work problems using

I assigned 7 problems that required students to either add, subtract, multiply or divide whole numbers and fractions.  I had each table sign in as a group, using only one computer.  They were to work together to solve the problems.  I gave each student a sheet of paper that we divided into fourths and numbered 1-8.  This is where they were required to show their work.

I wandered around the room, stepping in as needed to provide guidance or ways of thinking of the problem a little differently if they got stumped.  They did a very good job on the review.  I am sure nerves and a fixed mindset will set in tomorrow to undermine all of their confidence.... I hate that!
