By: Sue Bober, Schaumburg High School, Schaumburg, IL
Item #: AP7364
With the Problem Solving on the Wildlife Refuge - A Unit Factoring Super Value Activity Kit, students develop problem-solving techniques as they use wildlife ratio cards to determine how many animals of a particular species are on a refuge.
Students will have no fear as they enter the wildlife “unit-factoring” refuge! Students often forget to include units when solving problems or recording measurements, yet numbers without units are often meaningless. Take the confusion out of dimensional analysis or factor labeling with this engaging activity. Students develop the habit of using proper problem-solving techniques as they use specially-designed wildlife ratio cards to solve a set of puzzles and determine how many animals of a particular species are on the refuge. Six different puzzles present challenges of varying levels. Includes complete instructions with reproducible student handouts, and valuable Teacher Notes.
Super Value Kit is complete for 15 student groups and all materials are completely reusable—a super value!
Materials Included in Kit: Wildlife puzzle cards (set/6), 15 Wildlife ratio cards (set/8), 15
