This Compound Inequalities Question Stack is a great self-checking activity to give your algebra students some much-needed practice with solving and graphing compound inequalities on a number line. I originally created this activity to use with my Algebra 1 students. If you are thinking to yourself that “Sarah hasn’t taught Algebra 1 in years,” you …

# Question Stacks

I decided to create a special place on my blog to share my make your own question stack template. Previously, I have shared this template inside certain question stack posts, but it has never been particularly easy to find. Question Stacks are one of my favorite practice structures to use with students because they can …

I created this order of operations question stack activity to give my Algebra 1 students extra practice applying the order of operations to some rather involved expressions. These order of operations questions are specially designed to expose students to various grouping symbols including parentheses, brackets, absolute value bars, radicals, and fraction bars. I created a …

On Sunday, I shared a question stack I made to review the distributive property using printable business cards. Today, I want to share a different version. I created this question stack for my Algebra 1 classes to review evaluating expressions. If you’ve ready my blog for awhile and can keep track of my hundreds of …

In a previous post about creating cards for a speed dating activity, I mentioned that I had started using printable business cards for my speed dating cards instead of printing them on card stock and laminating them. I’ve also been doing the same thing for question stacks. Last year, I purchased a bunch of Avery …

I’m currently in the process of making more question stacks for my Algebra 1 classes. Every year, students are a bit confused when I introduce the practice structure. Often, they are talking or daydreaming when I am giving the crucial instructions, and they end up wasting a lot of time. This year, I’ve decided to …

I wasn’t quite sure what to blog about today, so I started looking through my drafts folder in Blogger. I ran across this post on a question stack I created for factoring trinomials during Algebra 1’s unit on polynomials. I first blogged about this activity in November of 2015. Here’s the link to my original …

I created this question stack activity to give my students some much-needed practice with rationalizing the denominator. Question stacks are one of my favorite practice structures. Students are given a double-sided deck of ten cards. One side of the card features a question. The other side features the answer to a DIFFERENT question. Students …

My Algebra 1 students are currently working their way through our unit on polynomials. We have new math standards in Oklahoma this year which has required me to change things up a bit. In the past, my students needed to know how to add, subtract, multiply, and factor polynomials. The new standards STILL have them …

I created this operations with radicals question stack activity for my trigonometry class. I’ve been on a question stack making roll lately. Okay, maybe making two question stacks in the space of two days isn’t a roll, but it kinda feels like one! After making an evaluating expressions question stack for my Algebra 1 …
