Wednesday, August 17, 2011

Today we began with this opener (pdf) reviewing the topics on the Math Skills Assessment.

Then we actually took the math skills assessment and talked about checking the results and making appointments to re-assess if necessary (see below).

Then we talked about re-assessing and how important it was to stay on top of things. We also talked about commenting on our class blog (see below).

Your homework for Friday (remember, no class tomorrow) is:
  1. Check the portal for the results of your assessment, fill out your student checklist with your results, and make a plan for retake (if necessary), including making an appointment. Many of you have unscheduled hours on Thursday (tomorrow) - please make an appointment and come in tomorrow if you need to re-assess (or get help and then re-assess). You can also come in during part of your lunch if necessary as the re-assessment over each skill should take 5 minutes or less (still leaving you time to eat).

  2. Go to yesterday's post and take a look at the pictures of the explanations you guys developed on the whiteboards. After looking at the pictures and reflecting on the explanations that went along with them, please leave a comment on that post about at least one way you think we could improve next time we're trying to create a visual explanation for our classmates. Be specific, refer to individual pictures if appropriate, be respectful, and try not to repeat what others have already said (that's an incentive to comment early!). (As a reminder, login with your Google Apps account - if you have any trouble, please let me know.)
