Students play game in pairs. They take turns picking a scenario to write a function about. If they get it correct they color in that box as their box. If they get it wrong and their partner gets it correct (they both solve the problems) their
10 written scenarios that match to 10 domain and range cards. 2 problems are challenge problems for higher level students. Cut out the cards (ideally on different color paper, but its ok if its all white), give the cards to a group of students and
This contains 12 graphs and 12 written explanations of why the graphs are or are not functions. Answer key included.8 graphs are not functions.4 graphs are function.Show how a semi-circle is a function where a full circle is not, x^2 parabolas are
Cut out the cards to create a deck of cards for each group.Students play in pairs or groups of up to 4. They flip 2 cards and perform an operation on those 2 cards. I usually use this to practice multiplying binomials, but it could be used for other
This is a card game to practice adding and subtracting polynomials by combining like terms. Challenge cards include the distributive property as well.Cut out the cards. Pages 1-2 and regular level cards. Page 3 are challenge cards to mix into decks
There are two levels of this activity (blue=regular, green=challenge). Cut out the cards with f(__)=__ on them for students and mix them up. Give students the decks and have them sort the cards into which functions they are true for. If students
Differentiated performance task for bulletin boardsStudents see multiple ways an equation was solved. Students must decide who is correct and who is incorrect. Then they must explain why each one was correct or incorrect. Comes with editable rubric
Students match the original square root, to the prime factorization of the radicand, to the simplified square root. Contains 12 of each card. Comes with an answer key and is already differentiated.Can be used for other methods of simplifying by
Cut out the cards and mix them up. Give one set of cards to a group of 2-4 students. Have students match the set of polynomials to their product. Includes answer key and differentiation. The bolded problems are challenge problems. Mild: Students
There are three levels of this card game: mild. medium, and hot so the game is already differentiated for you. Cut out each set of cards to create a deck of cards for students. They will then they will flip 2 cards at a time and add the two cards
Students manage a bank account by adding and subtracting integers or rational numbers. This task has them deal with real life applications of negative numbers and is fun and engaging. I told my students this was a task to help my sister understand
This product has students match equivalent fractions, decimals, percents, and visual models. Great for 6th and 7th grade students. Contains 12 fraction cards, 12 decimal cards, 12 percent cards, and 12 visual models.
