PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Problem trails (scavenger hunts) are fun to use in the classroom because they get the students up and moving around the room. They also encourage students to check their work carefully since an incorrect answer will eventually send them back to a problem they have already solved. Successfully completing a problem trail requires students who tend to work too quickly to slow down a bit. This particular activity works best when students work individually.

I usually post about 3 copies of each question around the classroom for students to solve. Then assign each student to a starting point (any problem number) and let them go.

This is a 10 question problem trail in which students will find surface area of prisms, pyramids, cylinders, cones, and spheres.

A formula sheet, student answer outline, and answer key are included.
