A colleague of my reminded me earlier this year that it is ok to hand write your worksheets, rather than typing everything. I had previously digitally created all my worksheets and thought it rather inconceivable to handwrite any of them. This adherence to Adobe Illustrator made creating good geometry worksheets particularly time-consuming. So I got out my protractor and got to work creating some geometry worksheets. And to my surprise – it was a lot more fun to create them. Something about the tactile nature of using the projector and pen makes these worksheets more enjoyable to make. Here one I made when my students were learning how to read geometry diagrams.
This worksheet would have taken a long time to digitally create, and it would not have been very fun to make. Doing it by hand was fun, easy, and didn’t take much time.
