This set of cards can be used to review using integrals to find area in both Calculus and AP Calculus. Each card has a problem displayed in the center of the card and an answer to another problem, in a magnifying glass, at the bottom right of the card. By using the 10 cards that have a ♡ at the bottom you will have 10 cards in the scavenger hunt. By using the 10 cards that have a ♢ you will have a second set of cards for a scavenger hunt. If you want to make a 20 card scavenger hunt, remove 10 ♡ and replace it with 22 (no symbol) and remove 18 ♢ and replace it with 21 (no symbol).
There are two complete sets of cards. One set has the graphs and bounded area identified and the other does not. You can mix and match the two sets of cards so some graphs are given and others aren’t.
Suggestions for working with the cards:
1. Post the cards around the classroom (either set of 10 problems with a ♡, 10 problems with a ♢, or all the problems with a ♡ and with the two cards replaced).
2. Assign different students to start at different numbers. Distribute copies of the student recording sheet. Students should record the number of the card they are working on in the small square at the top left of the grid. When they have come up with an answer to the problem they then go on a scavenger hunt to find a new card with their answer in the bottom right corner of the 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 on their recording sheet and solve the new problem. Students keep working on problem for the allotted time.
3. The last three cards show the cycle for the two 10 card scavenger hunts and the combined 20 card scavenger hunt.
4. The goal would be to complete as many questions as they can in the allotted amount of time.
5. Awards can be given for the number of problems completed by each student.
