Hi everyone, I have an idea and I'm not sure whether or not it would work: Those of us who have been teaching a while have certain favorite worksheets. They're the ones we go to, year after year. They either explain a concept well, push the kids to learn more or better, or just excite the class. Why not share with our friends? I've been out of the classroom a while, so I would have to dig through my files. But I can think of 3 right off the top of my head (All High School, sorry): Geometry: "Arcs and Angles Monster". It's a huge circle with something like 26 pieces to fill in. Here's how I use it: I tell the kids it's a group test. They can work alone or together, but by tomorrow's class we'll decide by consensus what their answers will be. They can use any resources available: textbook or notebook, but if they know the formulas, nothing else is needed. Then they get to work. When the next class starts, I ask "Angle 1?" and they quickly decide on an answer. And so on down the answer sheet. They tend to get most of the answers right. Everyone in the class gets the same grade; they enjoy the break from a normal class and they tend to learn the formulas. It's not something I could ever hope to put on the computer-- my skills at diagrams are abysmal-- but I would be happy to mail it to anyone interested. Algebra II/Trig: I have a good sheet on Composition of Functions. It's basically 6 or 8 functions, set up on a grid. You have to do (A(Bx)), B(C(x)) and so on, and each of the answers is one of the original problems. I could easily type it and email it if you're interested. Pre-calc: Intro to Matrix row reduction: When you first teach kids to use matrices to solve a system of equations, they have a hard time just following the algebra. So I always start with this sheet. It's a series of 4 problems, all worked out, with the directions getting them from step to step. Once they get the hang of how to follow the directions, they have a much easier time coming up with the actual steps themselves. On computer; I could email it to you anytime. I'm sure I have more. Anyone else interested in sharing? Please specify both the topic and suggested grade, since each state has its own standards and things may not jive exactly. Thanks!
