A sorting provocation. The first discussion asked children what they thought sorting was. As a lead up question children were asked what things we sort in our classroom. Here are some responses which supported their understanding and linkage to real life applications: sorting materials at construction, sorting in the Tenzies game, sorting the Russian Dolls, sorting our kind of writing (e.g. lists, books, cards, etc.), sorting markers, paint brushes, and books.
27 questions all stuffed in to the same circle gives students a real challenge. This puzzle is great for any high school geometry lesson on circles. It contains angles with their vertex in the circle, on the circle, and outside of the circle. These angles are all made using diameters, chords, secants and tangents.
The powerpoint game is just like Jeopardy. Click on a question and students answer it correctly to get the points. This game caters to 4th grade geometry. Questions include identifying lines, angles, and symmetry. Students will love it. Great for a review before a test!
Question: Why are circles so hot? Answer: Because they’re 360 degrees. --- Follow My Math Jokes Board for more Math Humor: http://www.pinterest.com/mathfilefolder/math-jokes-humor/ #MathHumor #MathJokes
