It’s OK To Make Worksheets By Hand

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.
