This is a homework assignment that I use in my Algebra 2 classes. Students complete the assignment at home, placing their answers in the 24 Bingo squares. For example, they could write "#7. x = 1 and x = 9" in any square. The next day, I pass out
This is an activity that I do with my Geometry students to preview the Law of Sines. In this activity, students understand why SSA triangles (the "Ambiguous Case") could have one solution, 2 solutions, or no solution. After they complete the
This is a great hands-on way for students to understand proofs. There are six triangle congruence proofs included. All "pieces" of the color coordinated proofs can be cut out. Students work to rearrange the statements and the reasons in the correct
Students work through this activity to understand how the two Geometric Mean Theorems were derived. This is a quick activity and several examples of the Geometric Mean Theorem are included on the last two pages.
This is one of the proofs that I show my students for the Pythagorean Theorem. It is a great proof for the more advanced students, especially the more creative ones who like hands-on puzzles. It works like a tangram. If students successfully solve
After playing my factoring matching game (see my other resources), I check to see if my students really understand how to factor using a "dry erase page." I simply put these sheets inside of sheet protectors and allow students to use dry erase
This is one of my favorite ways for students to truly understand HOW to factor. I like to think one of my greatest strengths as a mathematics teacher is that every student that leaves my class knows how to factor. This activity has seven different
When students master factoring, I have them work in small groups of 2-3 students on this challenging Tarsia problem. Students work together to fit the pieces of the puzzle together into a diamond shape. I have also included a blank diamond shape if
