This scavenger hunt on finding limits contains 2 sets of ten-card scavenger hunts or 1 set of twenty-card scavenger hunt. The twenty-card set has blue diamonds on the cards. There are two ten-card sets (one with red hearts and one with black clubs. Using these diamonds, hearts or clubs it is easy to separate the three sets of cards. When you set up the scavenger hunt you should display all the cards for that set around the room. Give each student a copy of the student recording sheet. Assign each student a starting card. Each student should record the number of the problem they are working on their recording sheet. When they have the solution they go on a scavenger hunt for their answer in the magnifying glass on another card. (If the student can’t find their answer on another card they should rework the problem or seek out help to discover their error.). You can set a time limit or stop the scavenger hunt when the students have solved all the cards in their set.
If you want to do one of the ten-card scavenger hunts with a larger class use a double set of the cards to spread the students out in the room.
This activity will get you students out of their seats and moving around the room.
In the problems on these cards the students will look at limits both analytically and graphically.
A complete set of solutions is provided that the teacher can use with any student who may be having difficulty solving a problem.
Another way to use the cards is to pair the students up so two students are working together to solve a scavenger hunt.
