### Always, Sometimes, or Never? Resources for Math Class

After successfully using Always, Sometimes, or Never? to help my students gain a better conceptual understanding of the measures of central tendency (link to blog post), I began to wonder what other math topics I could use the Always, Sometimes, or Never? structure with.

I spent part of an evening googling for resources.  I thought I should share my findings with you guys as well.  Have you used Always, Sometimes, or Never? to review other concepts?  Please leave a comment!

Algebraic Properties

Angles

Area and Perimeter

Equations

Evaluating Expressions

Fractions

Geometry

Linear Equations and Inequalities

Maxima/Minima

Measures of Central Tendency

Miscellaneous

Negatives

Number Sense

Parallel and Perpendicular Lines

Points, Lines, and Planes

Rational and Irrational Numbers

Similarity

Transformations

Trig

1. Thank you for all of these awesome links! I will definitely be bookmarking this page.
I have an always, sometimes, never on quadrilaterals here: https://crazymathteacherlady.wordpress.com/2013/11/20/always-sometimes-never/

Tracy Zager also has a collection of always, sometimes, never on her book's awesome companion site here (scroll to the bottom):

2. I have always, never, and sometimes with graphs of Quadratic Functions. It really makes students think beyond a choice of A, B, C and D

3. I love always,sometimes, never!
I used a resource I found on TES and changed it into a Desmos activity for arithmetic sequences here: https://teacher.desmos.com/activitybuilder/custom/58c5f0da348d1905ef658496

1. Thanks for sharing, Becky!

4. A/S/N with systems of equations.... If two equations have the same slope, the system has no solution. If two equations have the same slope and y-intercept, the system has many solutions. If two equations have the same y-intercept, there is one solution.... etc.
