Students work in partners to evaluate functions in this collaborative "Around the Clock" activity. Each partner gets a clock with 12 unique functions to evaluate and a functions card. Each partner's clock problems are different but the answers are the same, encouraging collaboration and teamwork. If one student gets stuck, the other can help. If student answers differ, they work together to figure out the correct answer before moving on to the next problem.
Students paste their START slip at 12 o'clock, evaluate its function and find the answer on the top of another slip. They then paste this next slip at 1 o'clock and solve its problem. Each answer students find will lead to the next function to evaluate.
Students evaluate all 12 functions until they get back to 12 o'clock. If all functions have been evaluated correctly, the answer from the problem at 11 o'clock will be at the top of their START slip.
The activity is self-checking, providing students with instant feedback. The final product is a colorful example of their ability to evaluate functions. Includes optional student answer sheets and answer key.
