This product contains several activities to help students calculate the area and circumference of circles. The card sort activities are quick activities that students use to sort the cards into two different groups. The purpose of doing these is to help students identify what is being asked of in each problem. For example, in the diameter and radius card sort, students are identifying what about the given circle is being described. This will later help them determine the piece of information they need to know to find the area or circumference in the task card word problems or scavenger hunt questions.
1. Area vs Circumference Card Sort
2. Diameter Verse Radius Card Sort
3. Approximate(decimal) vs Exact(in terms of pi) Answer Card Sort
4. Area and Circumference Task Cards
5. Area and Circumference Scavenger Hunt
The situation card sorts contain several situations that students have to identify what is being represented. These situation cards will help students build up to working with word problems and be able to identify what is being asked of in the word problems or what information is given that relates back to the formulas.
The exact & approximate answer card sort has students sort information relating to four categories: exact circumference, exact area, approximate circumference, and approximate area. The students have to identify whether the cards represent circumference or area by looking at the units.
The area and circumference task cards and scavenger hunt contain several questions requiring the students find exact and approximate area and circumference of circles. Word problems are also included, as well as a few questions requiring students to find the radius or diameter using the information given about area & circumference.
The scavenger hunt and task cards can be used in groups or individually. These cards can be printed multiple cards to a page or on a whole page to be posted around the room(which is what I like to do for the task cards and scavenger hunt).
All of these pages can be printed at the full 8.5 by 11 size or you can use the directions provided to print multiple pages on each page. This allows you to print varying size cards you would like to use. The more page you print to a page, the less paper you use, but the smaller the cards.
I suggest laminating them so you can use them over and over again! These will look best in color, but will also print out in grayscale.
Thank you for your support!
