Ok, I have been MIA the past 3 weeks. We have one full week left and finals start Friday, Half days next week Monday-Wednesday. Then Christmas Vacation! YES!
But here are some activities I have used in the class the past few weeks.
Our current Algebra II unit is Rational Exponents, so I have done a few activities for this unit.
1st, is a transformation matching activity for square and cube root graphs.
The students have to match the graph, equation, and the transformation description. Transformations are a huge part of our old Integrated curriculum here in Georgia. (Currently being phased out with Common Core)
Rational Exponent Transformation Cards
2nd, is a Tarsia activity puzzle.. Students have to cut out the pieces and put them together in a puzzle that forms a Standard Parquet (It's 12 pieces). The questions are on simplifying rational exponents. I guess I will need to do a post on Tarsia for those who don't have it or have used it.
Here is the pdf file for you to print and have your students match up Rational Exponent Tarsia PDF
Those of you that have downloaded and use Tarsia here is the Tarsia file Tarsia File
And finally here is a different version of Tic Tac Toe review game that I love.
1) Choose any row or column and complete the problems on your own paper or on the back of this sheet. Work independently!
2) Once you are convinced that your answers are perfect, record them in the squares, and take them to the teacher to play the game.
3) If you are correct, your square gets a circle. If you are wrong, the square gets an X and you are blocked!
4) If you are blocked, you must start over with another row or column.
5) Keep playing until you “win”!
Here it is it covers the full unit! Tic Tac Toe Review
