Types:

CCSS:

Students match the graph of a quadratic, the x-intercepts, and the equation in standard form.
Print out the file on card stock or laminate regular paper. Cut the cards apart to make a set for teams of two or three. The original has the cards that

Types:

CCSS:

Students write equations of polynomial functions by looking at their graphs. Graphs include those that cross the x-axis and those that are tangent to the x-axis.

Types:

CCSS:

Students work in groups of two or three to arrange steps in the correct order to simplify trig functions. These all have five steps using the pythagorean and reciprocal identities.

Subjects:

Grades:

Types:

CCSS:

Students cut apart a 4 by 4 square with trig functions in radians with their exact values from the unit circle. By lining up trig functions and their exact values, they create a new 4 by 4 puzzle.
Outer edges are blank, so the puzzle is easier.

Grades:

Types:

CCSS:

Students find the measures of angles in a figure using the properties of incribed angles and arclengths.

Subjects:

Types:

Given the graph of a quadratic function, students write an equation in vertex form.

Types:

Students use a graphing calculator to discover the parents functions of even radicals and odd radicals. They further discover what happens to a parent function if a number is added or subtracted outside the radical sign and if a number is multiplied

Types:

This file may be projected onto a white board or converted to a smart board file. It is an introduction to polynomial function graphs.

Subjects:

Types:

CCSS:

Students work in groups of two or three to arrange steps in the correct order to solve trig equations in linear and quadratic form. Each equation has 5 steps. These work well after students are accustomed to basic operations.
Solutions are written

Types:

CCSS:

Students work in groups of two or three to arrange steps in the correct order to find the inverse of a function. These all have five steps including simple linear, polynomial, radical and inverse functions.

Subjects:

Grades:

Types:

CCSS:

Students find the measures of angles in a series of parallel lines with transversals.

Subjects:

Types:

Students work in groups of two or three to arrange steps in the correct order to solve third degree and fourth degree polynomial equations using synthetic division and the factor theorem.

Subjects:

Grades:

Types:

CCSS:

Students match an inequality with what it's graph looks like. Includes holes and solid points as well as ranges between numbers. Introductory level. Matching cards are next to each other on original.

Grades:

Types:

Students cut apart a 4 by 4 square with trig functions of degree measures and the answers. By lining up the two, they create a new 4 by 4 puzzle.
Outer edges are blank, so the puzzle is easier.

Subjects:

Grades:

Types:

CCSS:

Students look at linear, quadratic and exponential data in terms of graphs, real-life situations, data sets and simple equations.

Subjects:

Types:

CCSS:

Equations of lines are presented in point-slope form and students write down the point, the slope, another point and transform to slope-intercept form.

Grades:

Types:

Students find the measures of angles and arcs in a figure using the properties of circle tangents and secant lines. There are also some triangles involved.
