I attended Howie Hua's #VirtualMath21 (you can search the hashtag on Twitter but Howie seems to have disabled his Twitter account). I really enjoy a good free conference and this one didn't disappoint. I have a few things churning in my mind, but one I wanted to share immediately was Graspable Math shared by Tim… Continue reading Graspable Math

## Get a Clue Escape Room

We are not giving finals this year. An idea I think I support (it has been hard keeping motivation without a final). I wanted a way to review everything we have learned this year but in a fun way. I originally planned to do a murder-mystery activity like I saw on Twitter shared by @MrsHiltnerReads.… Continue reading Get a Clue Escape Room

## Commercials for Class

As the year winds down, keeping the excitement going is sometimes difficult. I have two classes with seniors, whose last day was Friday, and now I have Juniors for 2 more weeks and I need to find activities to do that do not rely on new content. I decided to make commercials for students in… Continue reading Commercials for Class

## Go Fly A Kite

My colleague and friend, Danyelle, has done this kite construction project for a number of years during summer school. She first saw it at a conference many years ago. We decided to try it last year during the school year and then the pandemic closed school and we didn't get to do it. When the… Continue reading Go Fly A Kite

## Circle Theorem Explorations

The circle theorems unit is one where I question when we will use it but see the value in helping students explore and think. One way I like to do this is by having them explore the theorems and record what they notice. I use Geogebra for the explorations. Some of these are ones I… Continue reading Circle Theorem Explorations

## Quadrilateral InfoNotes

When we were fully remote and then hybrid, I wanted to give my students options in their learning and I wanted one of the learning options to be visual. When I set up my Canvas for a lesson, I have a table where the left side is read and the right side is watch. On… Continue reading Quadrilateral InfoNotes

## Quadrilateral Comics

This idea has been rolling around in my head, especially when I'm on the elliptical working out, so I'm excited to try it out with students. The idea behind this activity is to get students to think about the properties of quadrilaterals. There are so many rules to remember and there isn't a ton of… Continue reading Quadrilateral Comics

## Similarity Exit Tickets

As promised last week, here are some exit tickets that you can use with a Similarity Unit in Geometry. Just a reminder of how I use these. I give feedback on each submission and have students work on them until they are correct. I love doing this with the comment feature in Google Slides. In… Continue reading Similarity Exit Tickets

## Exit Tickets for Triangles Unit

It's nice when you find an activity that you can just USE. If you are getting ready to teach or review triangle congruence, hopefully these exit tickets will be helpful. I give these the same day I teach a new lesson. Students get feedback from me until they have correct answers. It has worked very… Continue reading Exit Tickets for Triangles Unit
