This activity helps students come up with the formula for finding the sum of the interior angles of any polygon. The formula us (n-2)*180. But why? What if I forget the formula? This activity helps students visualize why the formula works while also
This activity helps students come up with their own postulates about 45-45-90 and 30-60-90 right triangles. Instead of just telling students rules about special right triangles, they can develop their own ideas and conjectures. Enjoy!
This is a performance-based assessment that I designed that has the students create a blueprint for their dream mansion. They will be asked to use different shapes to design different rooms in the mansion. Then, they will have to choose their
If you wanted to make a life-size replica of the Statue of Liberty, how big would you have to make her nose? Her hands? This activity uses the real measurements of the Statue of Liberty and challenges students to use ratios and proportions to find
Over 55 Multi-Choice Question Exam covers functions, exponential, logarithms, limits, continuity, rational functions, polynomials, transformations, and some basic introduction into radians. Also has questions over sequences and series. Great for a
This is a 67 question multiple choice exam that covers most of the second part of Algebra 2 (according to the common core). Topics include: Exponentials, logarithms, sequences, series, probability, and right triangle trigonometry review. Enjoy!
This is an activity that helps students "discover" the patterns in 30-60-90 and 45-45-90 right triangles.
It uses what they already know about their trig ratios to develop their own pattern rather than just memorizing a formula.
This is an assessment on parallel lines that are cut by a transversal, perpendicular lines, and perpendicular bisectors. This assessment corresponds with the review that I have also created and posted.
This is an activity that helps students really understand what a RADIAN is! It is not just some magical new way to measure an angle that we use just to be annoying. This is a fun way for them to actually understand what it means and how it connects
This is a test I developed that is a good summative assessment of simple area formulas and concepts. This test mainly covers area formulas for rectangles and triangles and touches on the area of parallelograms. The test includes a matching,
