Day 141: Dilation Station Rotation

We did a station activity including indirect measurement, scale factor, similarity, graphing dilatation, word problems. This was not as productive as it could have been, I need to review each station for next year. There was WAY more problems then time and students were getting frustrated and feeling unsuccessful.

Day 132: Similarity Speed Dating & more advanced practice

For some reason on my way to work I remembered Kate Nowak’s Speed Dating activity. It was a nice change, but for some reason I could not get the students to rotate so that each student worked with each other student. I cannot figure out what the heck I did! It usually ended with “OK, pair up with someone you have not yet met with.”

Most students appreciated the change in format.
