### Stuff Worth Sharing: Printable Flash Card Maker (+ Free Integer Operation Flash Cards)

Today's Stuff Worth Sharing is a nifty site I discovered at the end of this past school year to make my own printable flash cards.

The site itself is sort of plain looking.  But, it makes some pretty flash cards!

Start by typing in your questions and answers.  You can also import them, but I've never tried this.  Once you've typed everything in, click PDF.

You get plenty of options to customize your printed flash cards.

If you print them one-sided, they print with the question to the left of the answer.  Just fold them in half. If you duplex them, they print with the answer on the back and the question on the front.  Students just have to cut them out and study.

I made flash cards for my Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 students with all the important things they needed to know off the tops off their heads for their end of instruction exam.  Vocab.  Equations.  Mnemonic Devices.  That's a post in itself, though.

I also used this site to make some integer operations flash cards that will be used in the upcoming school year as part of my action research project for my master's degree in curriculum and instruction with an emphasis in math studies.  I'm researching the effectiveness of physical and visual models in the remediation of students in the specific area of integer operations.

So, I thought I should share these integer flashcards here on my blog for anyone who might find them to be of use in their own classroom.  I forgot to take a picture of the finished product after the flash cards were laminated and cut out, so you're going to have to live with a screenshot of the pdf file.  Sorry.  :(

If you're wondering why the questions and answers don't match up, these are formatted to be printed double-sided.  The coordinating answer/question will print on the back of the card.

These flash cards feature 50 questions that cover adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing integers.  These 50 questions match the questions on this integer operations pre-test.  Hope someone else is also able to make use of these!
