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. Thatís why Geometry Station Activities for Common Core State Standards has proven so popular. Students learn to apply geometry concepts, employ problem-solving strategies, communicate with one another, and reason through
to the answers while working together.
This book contains 18 sets of activities focusing on Congruence, Similarity, Right Triangles, Trigonometry, Circles and Expressing Geometric Properties with Equations. 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 Educationís Vice President of Education, ďStation-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."
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.
