Would you rather...

One of the teaching strategies I learned from the MATH 180 workshop prior to the start of school this year was giving students a question to answer as they came into class and were settling in. What a great way to get their heads in the game (and out of the hallway drama)! Today's Diigo education links included a website that I think would make a great addition to any math classroom and even other classes like consumer science where students have to make logical decisions about things such as what price is better on two items.
The concept is simple. Give the students two options and then they have to justify their choice. You could easily collect their response via Socrative, which is the "clicker system" that I discussed and demonstrated in this week's "topic of the week", via the short answer response type. The "Would You Rather..." website gives you a new question every day so you don't have to think of them on your own.

As always, let me know what you think and if you start using it!
