These 24 problems are great to use with your calculus students within the first few days of the school year. Reviews everything from asymptotes to domain and range, logs to sine and cosine. Worked in are calculus ideas such as limits, tangent lines and average rate of change. The intention is to work all of these without technology to build your students' fluency and wean them off of their calculators.
The circuit format allows your students to work semi-independently since they hunt for their answer to advance in the circuit. (Hence no answer key is included; the teacher must work the circuit in advance -- it is all the prep you need!) My students love this format! They lean over effortlessly and help each other, and they do not get up when the bell rings! It has helped me move away from complete direct instruction to facilitating more. Once you try a circuit, you and your students will be hooked!
Can be easily made into task cards or a scavenger hunt. But, what I like about the circuit format is that the students have a hard copy of their work all in one place that they can use to study from later.
