This document includes an anticipatory set that can be used at any level, with any topic, and various purposes. An outline of how the activity works, the benefits/purposes of the activity, and situations to expect is included. I have used this activity at multiple instances throughout my career teaching mathematics, and have experienced mostly success. A mathematics example, along with the cards to cut out, is also included. The activity is not only designed to introduce a topic and/or consolidate knowledge/review a topic but to also encourage cooperative learning as well as the process standards.
About my Products: While the PARCC assesses many of the mathematical practice standards, I aim to create many problems that require students to apply the skills outlined in the performance level descriptors. I believe that the more students are exposed to such types of problems, the more likely they are to succeed on the PARCC, and hence the more likely they are to be prepared for college and careers. If you happen to have any questions or concerns regarding anything your purchase (or download for free), please do not hesitate to contact me! Have a wonderful school year! :)
