I like to call this activity Putt-Putt-Geometry. It is 9 glorious holes of trigonometry application! This works great as a Trig unit project, end of year project, or test review (maybe 1 or 2 holes for review). The students can work in groups,
This is a fun activity for Algebra 1 students to practice graphing lines in standard form using intercepts. When they are finished, the students will have a "stained glass" image that can then be colored and used as classroom decorations.
This exercise requires the student to find simple probabilities, independent and dependent probabilities, and conditional probabilities all from sets of date presented in table form. It also requires the students to have a knowledge of finding
Factoring special cases can get boring, or repetitious pretty quick for the students. That is why I created this puzzle. They do not mind going through the motions because they know there is a rewarding chuckle waiting for them at the
It seems that the hardest thing for the students, when it comes to factoring by special cases, is recognizing when a polynomial is a special case. This puzzle only asks the students to identify which polynomials are special cases, and have a little
The new Florida Core standards do not include trapezoids or kites in the quadrilaterals section. This jeopardy is therefore a good review for parallelograms. If you teach in a state that does not have the Common Core standards, then my
This quiz-quiz-trade activity gets the students up, and moving around the classroom while practicing criteria for congruent triangles. It can be used as practice for new material, or as a quick review before a test. Be sure to print double-sided
This is a group activity in which the students will practice how to rotate points and figures in the coordinate plane. They will rotate about the origin, as well as other centers of rotation. The activity uses function notation for rotations as
This is a jeopardy review for the entire quadrilaterals section of Geometry. It covers all of the properties using algebra for the 6 quadrilaterals. It has good, working, actions for easy and ambidextrous use at the active board. I hope you enjoy!
This is an ActivInspire flip chart focused on transformations. All of the transformations are presented in function notation, as per common core standards. There are mechanical questions (produce an ordered pair after a transformation), and there

This is a handout for Algebra 2 students that highlights parabolas and all of their properties. It includes domain, range, intercepts, increasing/decreasing intervals, min/max, axis of symmetry, vertex, focus, directrix, and examples of each form.
In this exercise, students will work with partners or small groups to perform a dice experiment. They roll a pair of dice a large number of times and record the results. They then compare their experimental probabilities to the theoretical
These exercises are compositions of rigid motions. All transformations are presented in function notation per common core standards. There are 3 pairs of commuted compositions. The students will be able to see that compositions of transformations
This is a matching exercise to help students practice solving nonlinear systems. The students should work in groups to match the graphs to the appropriate equations. Then, once they see what the solutions are from the graphs, they should find the
This puzzle is used to review or reinforce logarithm evaluations without a calculator. It requires the students to understand the concept of getting numbers into the same base in order to evaluate the logarithm. Cut the squares out and explain to
This exercise covers the graphs and properties of parabolas written in vertex form, standard form, and intercept form. It is intended for Algebra 2 students, but will work for any course that studies conic sections.
This is a quiz-quiz-trade activity for parallelograms. The students should use the information on the card to identify which type of parallelogram can be proven. No other assumptions are allowed to be made - only use the given info. Simply print,
This activity guides students to discover the angle pair properties when a transversal crosses a pair of parallel lines through the use of rigid motions as per common core standards. The activity requires the students to already be familiar with
This exercise is designed to walk students through the discovery of the function transformation rules. It is part of both the Common Core Algebra 1, and Algebra 2 courses. The only prior knowledge that is required is to be able to evaluate
