For this activity the student creates a flow map mini-poster showing the steps to simplify quotients of monomials (dividing a monomial by a monomial).
Included with this product:
*Flow map template
*Scrambled flow map steps
*A completed flow map
*A checklist for grading the posters
*16 quotients of monomials
There are ___ ways to use this product:
1) The student uses the flow map template (included) to outline the poster.
2) The student sorts the scrambled steps to arrive at the flow map.One way to introduce the flow map activity is to complete a problem as a class and discuss how each step can be described in words.
3) The student creates a flow map from the example flow map
The activity is best done after the students have been introduced to the skill and have practiced it.
The activity is good for reinforcing the skill or as a formative assessment. The best flow maps may be displayed in the classroom or hallway. The flow map is excellent for visual learners and is enjoyed by those that like to draw.
It works well when the students each have a different problem to work with. I usually put several problems in a basket for the students to randomly choose from. 16 problems are included in the product.
