Here's a quick overview of how a Question Stack works:
- Lay out all of the cards with the answers facing up.
- Flip over one card to reveal a question.
- Work that question out.
- Find the answer on another card.
- Flip that card over and lay it on top of the first question card to start a stack of questions and answers.
- Work the new problem that was just revealed.
- Repeat until you run out of cards.
This was very hastily put together because 1) I am a procrastinator and 2) I have first hour planning period. That is NOT a good combination. So, if it bothers you that I copied and pasted some questions and typed others, I apologize. If your kids are super astute and will notice the font differences, you should probably fix this. My kids were so stressed out about rationals that they didn't seem to notice.
I put a Q on the question side of the cards to avoid confusion. I still had one group waste a lot of time trying to solve a problem. They couldn't figure it out. I couldn't figure out why it wouldn't simplify. Finally, I realized that they were looking at the answer side of the card that was already simplified. The rest of the class gave them a whole lot of grief over that!
Here are the questions I used:
And, here are the answers. The cards do not print with the question and answer on the same card when printed double sided. This is by design. The cards should form a sort of loop.
