: There will be 5 stations with a maximum of 6 people in each group. Students will be able to choose their group if they are able to work together and complete the classwork. However, if groups become distractions then individuals will be moved at the discretion of the teacher.
Students will have their own packet but each section will be divided up by group members where each student can identify which part they have completed. Other than the Final Question the groups will be scored based on the whole groups ability to divide the work amongst themselves. As long as one group member in each group has the question filled out then the whole group will receive credit.
Each station will only last 7 minutes so students will want to work together as a group in order to complete each one. (35 minutes of rotation of 50 minute class period, this is allowing for a 5 minute period of explanation time period and attendance at the start of class) (7 minutes will be used at the end of class to answer a final question).
