Wednesday, August 24, 2011

Today we began with our assessment over Solving Proportions and Percents and then created the key (pdf). We discussed how the key would be posted to the blog and that you should check your results and sign up for re-assessment if necessary.

We then spent some time applying proportions to various situations (lesson, pdf).

We then went over any questions you guys had about anything we've done so far in this class - not just the algebra, but how various things work in this class. The expectation is that you now know how everything works and can successfully accomplish things like logging into the Moodle and taking pre-assessments, watching videos and completing self-check problems, etc. If there's anything you're still having difficulty with, please come in and see me so that we can get it figured out.

Your homework for tonight is:
  1. Check the portal for the results of your assessment, fill out your student checklist with your results, and make a plan for re-assessment (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 should take only 5-7 minutes (still leaving you time to eat).

  2. Remind your parents that tonight is Back to School Night. This is their chance to find out if I'm actually as weird as you say I am, so please encourage them to come.

  3. If you notice you are missing anything when you check your assessment grade on the portal, please complete whatever you are missing.

  4. Don't forget your first blog post is due by first period on Friday.
