I used the Clever Catch in precalculus today as their opener problem - I never thought they would like it as much as they did. The problems were a little easy for them, but it was nice to make them "correctly" say the problem so everyone could understand what they meant. If you haven't used it yet you should, it was fun!!!

I need to go get my poster from the library . . . I'm sure the kids will find it interseting.

that way kids can't cross something out they don't agree with.
best part is, the librarians will have it ready in a day!

Should I use this with my alg 1 and 03 geometry classes? it seems like there are more upper level questions than basic for those kids.

Either would be fine. Some of the question they may not know - I guess just have them throw it again - I'm sure they will not mind that.

That will be okay. I guess we could also use the opposite hand.
