Here are the cards I used:
Thoughts from today -
- As usual, my Advanced Algebra 2 students were the most enthusiastic about this. They were certainly the loudest group of the 4.
- Pairs in two of my classes thought the winner of the "hand" should be who got their answer correct first instead of who had the highest answer. Thoughts for a variation, maybe? I didn't want to emphasize speed today but accuracy instead.
- Most everyone participated. I had one pair in one class who didn't do more than maybe 4 pairs. "I already knew how to do it," was one of the students' comment in that pair. That student took away practice from his/her partner which wasn't helpful to him/her. :-( Even my lowest ability students did participate (although, again, maybe not as much as I would have liked, but at May 17th, I'll take whatever I can get).
- I was able to get around and help many students who needed help getting started. Once they got going, they were involved and it worked well.
- However, in all of my regular Algebra 2 classes, they stopped after going through the pack once. My last regular Algebra 2 class had a couple of pairs who kept going and in my Advanced Algebra 2 class, they kept going until I told them to quit. I could add cards and make a larger pack, but I'm not sure if I'm going to head there.
- Overall, it was a good activity and worth doing.
Your way to describe log are new and fresh,these type of techniques make maths easy,I want to discuss a simple definition of calculus as-Calculus is the study of how the things change with keeping the main focus on:
1.Rate of change
Calculus is divided into two categories that is differential calculus (also known as rate of change) and integral calculus (also known as accumulation) and fundamental theorem of calculus connects both of them.
Thank you for the mention, Lisa! I know that motivation is especially difficult this time of year. Great job keeping your students focused until the end! Amy
P.S. I forgot to mention that I like the way you varied the location of the X in your cards. I also like that you had the students verify their work on white boards, hopefully reducing the number of passive participants. Nicely done!
I used your cards in my Honors Algebra II class this week. The students loved the activity and I think the practice really helped them!! Thanks.
