Each student starts by solving a word problem involving a piecewise function. They have a chance to check their solutions to make sure they are correct. Then students are arranged with a partner across from them and they exchange problems. If one of them needs help, they ask their partner rather than the teacher.
After a set amount of time, the teacher rings a bell, buzzer or calls "time", they retrieve their original problems and one partner moves to the next person. They exchange problems and repeat the process. Students work as many problems as time allows or until everyone has exchanged problems.
This activity contains:
25 cards with word problems involving piece wise functions
Student Response sheet for showing their work
