## Evaluating Expressions Sorting Cards Activity

One of the first things that caught my eye when flipping through CPM’s Core Connections Algebra book was a team sort to assign students to groups (or study teams).  In the past, I’ve assigned students to groups in a couple of ways.  Usually, I just let my classes choose their own seats.  The problem with …

## Boxplot and Histogram Card Sort Activity

My stats students were struggling with boxplots. So, I decided to take a break from making boxplots to letting them look at boxplots that were already made. A quick google search led me to a card sort linked to by @druinok. The link is now broken, so I have uploaded the file below. I always feel …

## IQR vs Standard Deviation Card Sort Activity

My stats students had just finished up learning to find IQR by hand and by calculator and standard deviation by hand (I know – I’m evil!) and by calculator.  It was now time to discuss when each is more appropriate to report.   I quickly decided to make a card sort for my students to …

## Categorical vs Quantitative Variables Card Sort Activity

I created a categorical vs quantitative variables card sort that I would like to share with you. This year, I’m teaching statistics for the second time.  The last time I taught it, I had a class set of textbooks that were waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay over my students’ heads.  I even struggled with understanding how they presented some …

## Factoring vs Distributing Card Sort Activity

I created this factoring vs distributing card sort activity to show my Algebra 2 students that factoring isn’t something to be afraid of. By the time they get to Algebra 2, the distributive property is something they should hopefully be able to do in their sleep.   So, I wanted them to see that factoring …

## Parent Functions Card Sort Activity

I created this parent functions card sort activity for my Algebra 2 students. This activity is intended to give students practice matching equations, graphs, and tables. It also introduces them to the concept of a “window” on the graphing calculator. I actually ended up giving this to students on their very first day of using …

## Coterminal Angles Card Sort Activity

I created this coterminal angles card sort activity for my trigonometry students to complete and glue in their interactive notebooks. Students have to sort the angle cards into groups that are coterminal with one another. Then, they must take a blank square and write an additional angle that was coterminal with the other angles in …

## Independent vs Dependent Variables Card Sort Activity

Today I want to share a independent vs dependent variables card sort I created for my Algebra 1 classes to glue in their interactive notebooks. Last year, some of my students really struggled with the difference between dependent and independent variables.  So, this year, I set out to teach this topic better.  I’m pretty sure …

## Linear vs Nonlinear Card Sort Activity from TPT

I downloaded this Linear vs Nonlinear Card Sort Activity from Middle School Math Aplenty on Teachers Pay Teachers. I used our lesson over linear vs non-linear graphs as graphing calculator practice for my Algebra 2 students.  Students rearranged each equation to get y by itself and entered it in their graphing calculator. After getting their …
