Playdough Partner Activity
Be creative with play dough!
- Students are to use playdough to create their own patterns to demonstrate a linear relation. Example:
- Each student designs 3 separate figures to show the pattern of his or her design.
- Then the partners exchange seats and determine their partner’s pattern.
- Collaboratively, they are to represent the relationship in a table of values and determine an equation for each pattern.
- Playdough adds a 3-dimensional element extending students’ practice beyond traditional paper and pencil method.
- This activity was completed on day three during the linear relations chapter as a review and “check for understanding” of the first two lessons of this unit.
- Interesting observation: some students found it more difficult to come up with their own creative pattern from scratch than when provided the first part of a pattern and asked to continue that pattern (as in the textbook). I wonder if I asked the students to repeat this playdough activity another day, would they feel differently once they had this experience under their belt? I may try that…
I like the math skills which you have mentioned.I can't understand why kids hate math.It's such a interesting subject.If they have any problem in it then they can understand it with help of online tutoring.ReplyDelete

Yes i agree with you, maths is so easy but teaching should be activity based.ReplyDelete
