Math Lesson – "Absolute Value Footloose" Students and teachers love Footloose! Students enjoy the movement while they are reviewing concepts; teachers enjoy the high level of student engagement and the quick/easy preparation. Absolute Value Footloose includes a set of 30 question cards, requiring students to identify absolute value, compare and order absolute values and integers, and apply absolute value to real-life situations.
My students love doing card sorts like this! This would be such a great way to review absolute value inequalities!!! This Absolute Value Inequalities card sort activity requires students to solve absolute value inequalities and match them to the correct solution and number line. This activity includes 16 absolute value inequalities, solutions, and number lines. Students will cut out the solutions & number lines and match them to the correct absolute value inequality on the student response
I plan to use these quick check sheets during our absolute value unit. I'll give each student a sheet (as a warm up) and shine an absolute value graph on the board. Students then have to find the vertex, intercepts, domain, range and maybe even the function. This will help cut down on how many warmups I need to make!
