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 Station Activities for Texas Geometry 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 thirty sets of activities across twelve topics: Points and Lines; Congruent Triangles; Relationships in Triangles; Proportions and Similarity; Right Triangles and Trigonometry; Quadrilaterals; Transformations; Coordinate Proof; Circles; Area; Surface Area; and Volume and Three-D Figures. 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.
30 sets of activities, each with 4 separate stations
10-15 minutes per station followed by a debrief discussion
