Activity Based Learning with Task Cards really does work to help reinforce your lessons. Task and station cards get your students engaged and keep them motivated. Use all at once or as many as you like. Directions for using Task Cards included in this resource.
Proficiency with Sigma Notation aka Summation Notation is a very important skill usually taught in PreCalculus and also in Calculus 1 and 2 (AB and BC). This activity can be used in all three courses.
One of the things I have noticed in higher level courses, is that even though the students do very well with task and station cards, they leave the class empty handed. The cards and response sheets go back to the teacher. I have started giving them organizers and flip books to do along with the task cards so they can go back and study. This reinforces the lesson even more. Great for interactive notebooks.

✓ 18 Task cards plus two blanks for you to customize.
# 1 - 10 students write sums without sigma notation and find the sum. Some of these include trig functions. All problems are Multiple Choice.
