Today in class my students are taking notes about points, lines, line segments, rays, planes, and angles. The weird part is that I am not sharing this information in a lecture. I wrote out the notes that I wanted the students to have.

I cut apart this page and handed each piece out to the students.

Students were given a blank notes page to be filled in. Each square is numbered and correlates with the pieces with the same numbers.

Students were given class time to go around the room trading squares with classmates. This process continued until all students had completely filled in their papers. Below are some pictures of the kids working.

I like how fun it was and how who we came toghter as a class to work as a team and help each there.

ReplyDeleteMAN IT WAS SO COOL

Awesome idea! I'm a little concerned that a ray is half a line. Since:

ReplyDeleteIf A, B, C are different points on line l, then the rays AC and BC are both half line l. Thus if you subtract AC and BC, then you get nothing, meaning that line AB is a point contradicting that A, B and C were chosen to be different.. ;-)

I'm thinking that a ray cannot be half of a line because you cannot measure a line, a line has no beginning or ending. I think you can say that a ray has an endpoint and then continues on forever in one direction.

ReplyDeleteSo what pieces did each student get? A random set or a full set or what exactly?

ReplyDeleteDo you have these pages somewhere I can print them?

ReplyDeleteI will post the link soon. It is available on TpT
