Day 48: Learning/Review Stations

20141105_120059 20141105_120242

It is the day before the Planning Studies unit in AP Statistics and I wanted to have a meaningful yet fun review activity.  I’ve been inspired by various teachers on the internet who use activity stations to get students to experience a topic in many venues.  I had 7 stations set up around the room using plastic stands from the Dollar store (thanks @druinok).  Based on previous years’ exam results and what students were saying this year, I wanted the kids to practice vocabulary (used a crossword puzzle), identifying type of study (card sort), design an experiment (M&M activity), talk through MC, practice mini FRAPPYs, and identify what can be inferred from a study (task card).  I also wanted the stations to be self-check so students could get immediate feedback and self-correct misconceptions, so had bright orange ANS folders for them to access.  I think the students loved it, but the proof is in there performance on their exam.  I’ll keep you posted.  How do you conduct reviews in your class?
