To celebrate the end of a year, I thought I would do a collection of most-read posts from 2011 (And one from 2010):
Scavenger Hunt: Students partner up and pick a starting point. Then they search for the answer which leads to another problem. Great way to review.
Stations Review and Practice: Students get a card with a couple of problems to work out. After a set time limit, they pass the card and receive another. New card has solutions to the previous one, and a new set of problems. Repeat. Also a great way to review.
Cake Day in Calculus: Use cake to practice volumes of rotation.
The Loop for Logs: A handy trick for switching log form to exponential.
8 weeks, 8 pencils . . . : The end to your pencil-less, pen-less, and eraser-less student woes.
Crazy for Conic Cards (and a follow-up): Cindy Johnson's conic cards changed my life. :)
A Fun Way to Start Class: The truth, I want to do this soooo bad. But I'm not sure I can pull it off.
Logarithm Love: Oh, if every unit went this well . . .
Color Coding: For Sketching Piecewise: This trick helped my students sketch piecewise functions with ease. And they get to color.
Super Speedy Quiztastic Fun: A fun way to practice short mental calculations.
