I too am writing my first blog post so that I can also be a part of #made4math Mondays. Up to this point, I have only used this blog as a place to have a live chat with my students to review for tests. I have been racking my brain for something brilliant and creative but I came up with nothing new. So I decided to make some card sorts. I love card sorts. They are great skill builders. My biggest problem is that I never remember what card sorts I have made before and I can never find them. I would love it if someone had a good idea for organizing them. But I digress. Let me first show you what I made.
Using a program called TARSIA (you can download it here). I created a card sort for Precalculus for evaluating Trig functions exactly with the angles given in radians. This is a pretty tough one but at least I have the whole thing made, on card stock, in baggies.
As you can sort of see, I printed it on five different colors of card stock. Then I cut them up and put them into baggies. Here is what the puzzle looks like when it is done.
Then I end up with baggies that then need to figure out a creative way to store.
