Emergency Rooms Card Sort Activity for Categorical and Quantitative Variables

Looking for a fun way to assess student understanding on categorical and quantitative variables? Check out this card sort activity I created for my statistics classes involving data that could be collected in an emergency room. I was very intrigued when I ran across a categorical vs quantitative variables problem set in Rossman and Chance’s …

Dotplot Matching – A Desmos Card Sort Activity for Statistics

I’m super excited today to share a dotplot matching activity I recently created for my statistics class. This summer when I realized I was actually going to get to teach statistics again after a multi-year hiatus, I got super excited and started doing lots of research. One of the books that came across my path …

Mmm Exponent Task and Card Sort Activity

This lovely exponent task is from Mathematics for the College Boards by Rich Barnett (Copyright 1967 AMSCO). Because each problem in the matching task involves the variable m and the numbers 2 and 3, the task really gets to the bottom of whether students understand the role played by exponents and coefficients. This is the same …

Vertex Form of a Quadratic Card Sort Activity

I decided that a card sort was the perfect method to introduce my Algebra 2 students to the vertex form of a quadratic. My sweet husband even offered to create the card sort for me. He’s currently in grad school, and I think he misses creating classroom activities. Students are given cards featuring six graphs …

Equivalent Fractions Card Sort Activity

Today I’m sharing an equivalent fractions card sort activity I recently created. My Math Concepts students are currently working through a self-paced review of all things fractions. One key skill for my students to wrap their minds around is the idea of equivalent fractions. Proof this skill is important: I still have students in my …

Discrete vs Continuous Functions Foldable

I am really pleased with how this discrete vs continuous functions foldable turned out! I really like how it combines a card sort within a foldable. Students were given six cards. Each card had ONE of the following filled in: situation, variables, or sketch of graph. As a class, we filled in the missing information …

Function vs Not a Function Card Sort Activity

This function vs not a function card sort activity is the perfect way to assess whether or not students can apply the definition of a function to determine whether a relation is or is not a function. This card sort activity provides students practice classifying graphs, tables (both horizontal and vertical tables), ordered pairs, and …

Solving Equations with Variables on Both Sides Sorting Activity

Since my non-standard operations sorting card activity was such a hit with my Algebra 1 students, I decided to use the same practice structure to make an activity for my students to get extra practice with solving equations with variables on both sides. I created a deck of 12 cards. Each card contained an equation …

Substances vs Mixtures Sorting Activity

We’re making slow but sure progress in chemistry. A few weeks ago, it came time to learn to classify matter. While looking through my reference textbooks for ideas, I ran across an idea in the teacher’s edition of Prentice Hall Chemistry to demonstrate to students how to identify substances vs mixtures. . Here’s the idea …
