Hot Potatoes!

I’ve been using Hot Potatoes from Half-Baked Software to create whiteboard activities for my students. We are currently learning about trigonometric properties and identities (proofs) in Pre Calculus, and students need to memorize these properties. To help with this, we practice using Hot Potatoes drag-and-drop quizzes or electronic flash cards on our Hitachi Starboard. Here are two examples:

Trig Properties Matching Activity is a great class activity for the electronic whiteboard

Trig Properties Flashcards allow students to quiz themselves on the computer

My quizzes are hosted on our school server so that students can access them from home as well as school, but you could simply run them from your harddrive. You can also upload and host 5 quizzes at a time for free directly through the Hot Potatoes software. If you’ve never used Hot Potatoes, check it out – it’s awesome and FREE.
