This is one of my student’s favorite activities. Who doesn’t want to go outside and map out some vectors? It works well in physics or trigonometry for understanding how to add and subtract multiple vectors.
10 different maps are provided for student groups to make their way from a single point

This activity leads students through the steps in finding the zeros of a polynomial and seeing how finding the intersection of two graphs is the same basic concept as finding zeros for two equations equal to each other.

This activity sheet engages students in studying the general trigonometric equation y = a + b cos(cx) and making statements about the period, amplitude, y-intercept, and x-intercepts. After developing ideas with the cosine function, students make conjectures about similar sine graphs and then make
