Directions: Each student will randomly select a small sheet of paper, 1-6, (make sure you have enough for each student) which will be used to group them. Each student will work individually on the problem that is on his/her small sheet of paper. Each student will draw the graph on the sticky note that he/she thinks best represents the description. Students will have about 5 minutes to work individually.
After the 5 minutes students will move into their groups (location is determined by the problem number). In their groups each person, sticks their sticky note to the big problem hanging on the wall, 1-6. The group decides which graph is the best and puts a star on the back of the sticky note.
Once all groups have decided, the rotation will begin. Each group will move to a different problem and decide which graph they believe is the best and put a start on the back of the sticky note they have decided.
This process will continue until all groups have evaluated all problems. We will come together as a class and discuss which graphs got the most votes and why.
You will need:
Problems 1-6 hanging around the room
Problems 1-6 copied for the amount of students in your classroom to ensure that each student gets one problem.
