Trig Function Murder Mystery - Unknown Sides/Angles, Unit Circle, Word Problems

(0)
A murder mystery that requires students to use their knowledge of basic trigonometric functions to find the killer! Students will be led through 5 puzzles to find clues leading to the killer. Puzzles require students to use knowledge of finding unknown sides and angles using sine, cosine and tangent, solving word problems, converting radians to degrees and unit circles. After solving the 5 clues, only one suspect will be left. Need to change a puzzle for your specific class! It's easy to change any of the puzzles as long as the clue matches up! Answer key included!

This class project is sure to be a hit with any and all of your students! This bundle includes 3 projects in one. All the projects relate around the same idea. Students have been hired as consultants for the Baltimore Ravens, Real Madrid or Monsters University to solve some problems. Students must use the provided data to create a linear regression (line of best fit, least squares equation) in order to determine a correlation coefficient. Afterwards, students identify residuals for each piece of data. After collecting all the necessary information, students are led through questions related to the organization. When I did this in class I gave all three projects and let them choose. The choices were mixed and the students loved that they were able to individualize the days lesson depending on their interests. After students were finished each group received a reporting form. This is the form the "consultants" would hand their employer to summarize their findings. This was absolutely a hit in our class! If you don't want all three I will put each project up individually.

Quadratic Function Scavenger Hunt - Vertex, Domain, Range, Intervals of Increase/Decrease

(0)
This 9 poster scavenger hunt requires students to analyze information related to the graphs of absolute value functions. Students are required to use knowledge of vertex, absolute minimum/maximum, intervals of increase/decrease, domain and range. Students are given a sheet with 9 questions. Each question has characteristics of a quadratic function graph. Students will search the posters to find the graph that matches all the characteristics on their paper. Students will then write the poster letter on their paper.
Adding and Subtracting Fractions with Unlike Denominators Scavenger Hunt

Adding and Subtracting Fractions with Unlike Denominators Scavenger Hunt

(0)
This scavenger hunt has students practicing adding and subtracting fractions with unlike denominators. All answers are in fraction form. Students can start at whatever poster they want and work around to find the next answer. The whole activity is one giant loop, therefore, they will end up back where they started. Our scavenger hunts are a great way to get students practicing and self-checking. Students get the automatic feedback they need by either finding their answer was correct or not finding their answer on a poster and thus knowing they need to resolve.

Linear Function Escape Room-7 Puzzles: linear functions and more

(0)
You always knew your friendship with an eccentric scientist was interesting but you never thought it would lead to this! Your students will need to use their knowledge of linear functions in standard form,(mainly word problems), x and y-intercepts, literal equations and line of best fit in order to escape the past and end up back in present time. Each puzzle will require flexible thinking in order to determine the clue. Students will then find the next clue and work on the puzzle. There are 7 total puzzles in all. We've included some implementation and modification ideas pending on the size of your class and ability level. This does require work on the Teacher planning part but students love it! If a puzzle answer or clue doesn't work for your classroom, feel free to modify it! You can change one clue and still keep the integrity of the activity and lesson! The answer key is inherently included as it will need to the next clue!
Piecewise Functions Guided Notes or Lesson Practice

Piecewise Functions Guided Notes or Lesson Practice

(0)
This is a straightforward activity involving a problem situation and a pool. Students are given information about the specification about a pool and must come up with the piecewise function, create a table, and graph the information. This is a great way to represent the information in multiple modes and demonstrate a real world example of the importance of piecewise functions. This assignment could be done as a class for instruction or indpendently as a grade or practice. We have completed this lesson in our own classes with great success!
X and Y Intercept Matching Activity

X and Y Intercept Matching Activity

(0)
This matching activity is designed to be practice for students in finding the x- and y-intercepts of a graph and from an equation. Students will have to use critical thinking skills in order to match the three sets. Finding intercepts is a difficult task for students to attain. This practice will help students see the relation between an ordered pair, equation of a line and a graphed line.

A linear function take on the classic game of clue! Can you solve the clues to determine the suspect, accomplice, room and weapon? Students will work through 4 clues: Your students will use knowledge of finding intercepts, word problems in slope-intercept form, word problems in standard form and graphing linear functions. Students will record their answers on their clue sheet to reveal the final solution. Students are given a cipher to turn their number answers into letters. Cut out both circles and spin the numbers to match the appropriate letter. Students are also provided a score sheet, just like the game, so they can mark off their final answer. Have them turn in their answers and work to see if they've found all the right information!

Students will be required to convert radians to degrees or degrees to radians. Students will start at any poster they want, solve the question and look for the answer around the room. If done correctly, students will end up back at the same poster. This is a great practice and review as it promotes self-checking and understanding of the content. We have only had success with scavenger hunts in our classroom.
