For this activity, students will practice using the theorems related to inscribed angles and the angles formed by tangents and chords. There are 10 problems to allow students to increase proficiency and automaticity. An answer key is included.
How it works:
Students can move among one row, group or throughout the room in a “snake” fashion. Movement is quick, hence the "hot seat."
* Use a timer and set it for 10-20 seconds. When the timer goes off, everyone stands and shifts as directed (within group, row or throughout the room).
* Have groups and rows move independent of the rest of the room. When a student finishes a problem, he/she will stand. When everyone is standing, students shift, within the group/row, sit and repeat.
--> The process repeats until the activity is complete.
--> Papers stay at the desk and students move.
--> Show the solutions when students return to their seats.
If you want your students engaged and working toward automaticity related to this skill, then this “hot-seat” activity is what you need!
