Print, laminate and cut out the cards (32 cards total – 4 cards per sine function group).
Each student gets one card. (Each card will have either a sine function, a table of values, a card with domain, range, and y-intercept or a graph). Let the students interact with each other for a time (I suggest 10-12 minutes), share the information from their card, and find a complete sine function group. Let the students have 5-10 minutes in their group to fill out the card comparison student sheet. In groups, have the students share out as to their thought processes on how they found their group. Have them emphasize the connections between the cards that justifies why their cards should be grouped.
For an added challenge, replace the graph cards with the identified coordinate points with the graph cards without the identified coordinate points.
