Today students work on 11 multiple choice questions related to the reciprocal trig functions and trig identities where the answer to each problem lets them know where to go for their next “clue” in the scavenger hunt.
Prep: Print the scavenger hunt and post the papers around the room, being sure to mix them up and NOT post them in the same order as they appear in the file. We like to print them on colored cardstock.
Play: Students should work individually or in pairs to work through the sequence of problems as they travel around the room. Students can start at any station and the answer choices will determine where they go next. Have students record the letters of each station in the order that they visit them on the recording sheet. Checking work is incredibly easy! The correct order of stations should spell S-W-I-T-C-H-B-O-A-R-D. Since students can start at any station, their answer might start at a different letter and loop around (example: TCHBOARDSWI would be a correct solution). If students return to a station they already completed before having gotten to all the problems, they will know there is a mistake in their work somewhere.
