To help me remember to post things on my website, I am starting a new segment called “What’s New Wednesdays!” My goal is to post every Wednesday on what topics we are covering in each class and when to look for the next quiz or test.
I’m also instituting “Correction Conversations” with my students. Correction Conversations allows the students to correct their missed problems on their unit tests. Students will rework the problems they have missed on their test. They will then have a private conversation with me to explain what their original mistake was and how they fixed it. The student will then earn 1/2 credit back for each problem corrected correctly.
On a personal note, I would like to say our students are handling this new school year quite well. Things have been very strange with having to spread out, wear masks, disinfect everything after we use it. I have a great group of students! They are all real troupers!
Now for class updates:
Algebra 2 has have just completed the assessment for Unit 1, Equations and Inequalities. Students have the opportunity to have Correction Conversations with me until October 8th to earn points back for their corrections.
Our next unit is Linear Functions and Systems. If we stay on track, we should be having a Quiz on Friday, October 10th.
Algebra 1B We are currently working on our unit, Linear Equations. We will be having a quiz next Tuesday.
Algebra 1A is continuing their introduction to The Real Number System. We have two more sections in this unit and will be planning to take our unit test within the next week.
Advanced Math is flying through factoring polynomials completely. They will be ready to take their unit test next week.
Geometry is having a time with learning all of their vocabulary. We are working on daily vocab quizzes to keep their skills sharp.
Algebra 1 is reminding themselves of the procedures to solving multi-step equations. We have one more section in the unit covering solving inequalities. This means by the end of next week we should be able to complete our study guide and take the unit test the following week.
Hope you’ve enjoyed this update. You know where to find me if you need me.
