Circles (Part 2) Stations Review

Monday, May 23, 2016
Today is the LAST Monday of the school year for me! Some students have totally checked out at this point but MOST have continued to give my class 100%. I am actually very surprised by this because this is the end of my 3rd year of teaching and for the past 2 years, it's been the other way around.

Our last test is tomorrow and I decided to try out something new for our last review. I posted the following 9 stations outside in the hallway and had students work it out on the answer document. The lines on some of the problems are where students showed their work.

A student conversations that I had about this activity:
Student: Mrs, Newell.... did you make this last minute or something?
Me: No, I finished this last week sometime. Why do you ask?
Student: Because, you didn't add any QR codes that we could use Snapchat to scan for help.

Why didn't I think of this?! I will definitely be adding it to the stations next year as "hints", not answers, but clues as to how to set up the problem. For example, on station C, "Angles in a circle add up to equal 360 degrees."

Next year, I do not want to hang the stations up on the walls in the hallways. I want to separate the desks into 9 groups and have students rotate and have visual aids and manipulative's at each station. Yup, now that I wrote that idea out, I will definitely be doing that next year!

Anyone else have students towards the end of the year that hate the "getting-up-out-of-your-seat" activities?

  1. This is great! What types of visual aids/manipulatives would you use? I've never heard of using manipulatives with circle properties!
