This set of cards can be used to review the various concepts related to angles of a polygon. This would be a great activity for students in high school Geometry.
Each card has a problem written in black and an answer to another problem (in the magnifying glass).
• The ten-card set that have a ♡ at the bottom will make one scavenger hunt with ten cards.
• The ten-card set that have a ♧ at the bottom will make another scavenger hunt with ten cards.
• The twenty-card set that have a ♢ at the bottom will make a combined scavenger hunt with twenty cards.
If you want to use one of the ten-card scavenger hunts with a larger class run a duplicate set of the ten cards so you have twenty cards to display.
Suggestions for working with the cards:
• Post the cards around the classroom (either a set of 10 problems ♡ or ♧ or 20 problems ♢).
• Assign students to start at different card numbers. Distribute copies of the recording sheet to each student. Students should record the number of the card they are working on in the small square at the top left of the grid. When the work on the problem is complete, they then go on a scavenger hunt to find the card with their answer in the bottom right corner, in the magnifying glass of a new card. If they can’t find their answer they need to check their work again. When they find their answer on a card, they record that number in the next square and solve the new problem.
• Students keep working on problems for the allotted time or until all problems in the set have been solved.
• The goal would be to complete as many questions as they can in the allotted amount of time.
• Awards can be given for the number of problems completed by each student.
• Students can be paired together and they complete the problems on the set of cards using one recording sheet. Encourage students to share the task of writing up their solution.
A full set of solutions is included in this package. These a solutions show all the steps necessary to solve the problem, not just an answer.
