Day 66: Circle Timer

_20131220_174224

College-Prep Physics: Today was a quiz today, so I’m sharing this amazing timer app I used yesterday to facilitate the speed-dating rotations for the mini-poster presentations. It’s called Circle Timer and it’s available for both iOS and Android. You set “work” and “rest” intervals and can string along several sets (of equal or unequal intervals) together. It’s also a great regular timer, just set the rest interval to zero. It has different tones for starting the work time and the rest time. For our presentations yesterday, students had 5 minutes to present (work) and 30 seconds to rotate (rest). I then strung 4 of those sets together and timer did the rest! It even keeps track of the total remaining time for entire string of sets. Super simple to use (just spin the dials). The only draw back is that you can’t save your timers. But it’s so easy to use, it doesn’t take much time to set up what you need.
