In deference to my love of card sorts, I thought I’d share one of my favorites for parent functions.
Full disclosure: I did make this during the summer because of all the cutting. It didn’t take me that long to make, but I don’t like making things like this during the school year.
First, I glued graphs of the parent functions onto the inside of a folder and had them laminated. This step is totally unnecessary; I don’t know why I did it, at the time it felt necessary
Then, I cut out all the cards. You can grab the editable file here. Feel free to add or delete extra stuff.
Because I felt fancy when I was making this, each category of card is a different color.
Then, the students can match the information to the different graphs. I have my students do this as their warmup everyday until I feel like they have everything memorized.
