Homework 2 Similar Figures Worksheets

On By In 1

The students begin the exercise, each student drawing a card.  The question I am most frequently asked is “Do I have to write down the equations?” and I always reply, “Yes!”  This helps immensely when I grade these exercises, so that I can see where students are making their mistakes. I think it is also an important aspect of MP6

While the students are setting up and solving their equations, I circulate throughout the room, picking up the Similar Figures Cards and answering questions as they arise.  By picking up the cards while students work, I am ready for the next round as soon as a round is completed.  As the rounds progress, the students typically become quicker and more adept at solving the problems, so that the time between rounds decreases. I recommend completing at least four rounds. With some students, four rounds is typically sufficient.  After four turns, I sense that everyone is comfortable with the concepts and ready to move on.  With some students, more than four rounds is beneficial (MP8)

In the case of an uneven number of students, one student will be without a partner.  I give that student the matching card and he or she works alone for that round.  I check in periodically to make sure it’s going okay for that student, and this has never presented a problem.

I collect the students' Answer Sheets at the end of the activity.  During the evening I correct the studemts work, and enter a grade for the activity.  This helps to inform my teaching for the next day, cluing me into any problems they might be having as a group or as individuals.  My experience has been, however, that it’s easy grading; very few mistakes are made and the students are ready to move on after this activity.
