These revised editions of the Mathematics Station Activities for Common Core State Standards include updated and improved sets of station-based activities to provide students with opportunities to practice and apply the mathematical skills and concepts they are learning. Each of our Station Activity books has been revised to tighten alignment and better reflect current interpretations of CCSS content and practices, based on implementation experience.
The research is in: students make sense of mathematical problems best when they work in small groups, with hands-on experiences that echo real-world situations. Using Algebra II Station Activities for Common Core State Standards students learn to apply advanced algebra concepts, employ problem-solving strategies, communicate with one another, and reason through to the answers while working together.
This book contains multiple sets of activities addressing topics such as Number and Quantity, Algebra, Functions, Geometry and Statisitcs and Probability taught in Algebra II courses. The activities consist of four different stations where students work in small groups, moving from station to station once their activities are complete.
According to Jill Rosenblum, Walch Education’s Vice President of Education, “Station-based activities give students multiple opportunities to develop their understanding. At the same time, they give teachers the chance to circulate, do informal assessments, and provide individual or small-group instruction as needed."
- Multiple sets of activities, each with 4 separate stations
- 10-15 minutes per station followed by a debrief discussion
- Correlated to the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics, complementing any math program
- Use readily available materials and manipulatives (not included)
Includes teacher support with discussion guides (prompts to encourage reflection and synthesis of ideas, suggested appropriate responses, and a listing of common errors and misconceptions identified in current research), answer keys, and material lists.
