Rediscovered John Rowe's Reversing the Question problems. This provided a 30-minute discussion for these geometry students (very new to trig).
OMG TGIF it's been a long week.
IDK if there's a name for this type of activity, but groups made purposeful mistakes, then switched and tried to find others' mistakes.
Log war and beginner trig notes: my lessons all had something inspired by Kate Nowak today!
Getting seniors to move after lunch can be tough...
Me: "Ummm, line up in order of increasing skew"
More hallway math: kinesthetic polynomial practice with strings! (need a different colored string...)
Ever try something in class without really getting it? Got caught today with this Bocce Ball activity from Bob Janes. I should have done a little more reading about how to tie to SD, but we got some good stats practice out of it anyway (and it was fun!).
If we're going to do statistics, we need to collect some data, right? I've ended up using library books for this for the past couple of years. Tedious, but hopefully going to lead us to the Central Limit Theorem.
