Tangent Lines Find Someone Who
This is a "Find Someone Who" activity in which students will practice solving problems related to tangent lines and circles. This includes determining if a segment is tangent, and solving for segments lengths involving tangent lines. Knowledge of the Pythagorean Theorem, solving multi-step equations, and squaring binomials is required for these problems.
There are 12 questions total. The students must get up and trade papers with different people in the class to complete the activity. Afterwards, we go go over the answers. Answer key included.
• Make sure to have students put their name on their own paper first before getting up.
• Make sure they use a pencil!
• Each time they trade papers with a student, they get their paper back.
• Students should aim to do a different problem each time they trade.
• Do the activity with your students! This is the best part. It allows me to target and interact with certain struggling students. I have them walk me through and explain how to do certain problems. Teacher involvement will also help keep the class on task :)
• Consider getting together with another class to do the activity. The students really love that too because they can interact with people from other classes.
Though simple, this is one of my all-time favorite activities!
