About the 1.6 Processing category


(Replace this first paragraph with a brief description of your new category. This guidance will appear in the category selection area, so try to keep it below 200 characters. Until you edit this description or create topics, this category won’t appear on the categories page.)

Use the following paragraphs for a longer description, or to establish category guidelines or rules:

  • Why should people use this category? What is it for?

  • How exactly is this different than the other categories we already have?

  • What should topics in this category generally contain?

  • Do we need this category? Can we merge with another category, or subcategory?


In my middle school elective classroom, I projected these sorts on the screen at wrap up portion of the lesson.

Students could see that there are several types of sorts and we talk about efficiency and accuracy.

As they were watching the sorts, they automatically wanted to discuss how the sorts worked so they could replicate them with their cards.
Interesting improvement to a lesson I had success with before.


Thank you for sharing this resource. I wonder if any of the students would have changed their protocol for sorting after watching this.


This is a wonderful resource. Thanks!
