I use relays to review a lot of different subjects in my classes. This one reviews Section 5.6 of the Prentice Hall CA Algebra 2 textbook: Complex Numbers -- simplifying, adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing.
Students have fun with Scavenger Hunts. They try hard to find the correct answer so their team can finish first!
It includes instructions of how to use the Scavenger Hunt, a worksheet that students can use to record their answers, and a homework worksheet with answer key!
I have also used this in my PreCalculus class. Rather than giving a lecture to review complex numbers, I give them this to work and remember previous skills on their own. They usually remember them better this way!
