Wednesday, September 28, 2011

We began with this incredibly-well-thought-out opener (pdf).

Then the lesson (pdf ) was to work through many of the investigations we've performed through the lens of slope-intercept form.

Your homework is:
  1. Tonight: Complete the Slope/Rate of Change Online Pre-Assessment on the Moodle. Do this tonight so, if you have any questions, you can come in during an unscheduled hour tomorrow and get some help (before the assessment on Friday).

  2. Tonight and/or Thursday Night: You might consider doing a few of these problems at Cool Math for practice. Do as few - or as many - as you think you need to make sure you understand how to calculate slope from two points on a line.

    Finish problems 3, 4 and 5 from the lesson (pdf ). Don't worry about #6 (yet, we'll get there). Look over problems 1, 2 and most of 3 (we got to everything except the graph) to help you with 4 and 5 - you can do this. If you need help, please come in on Thursday and get it. Take charge of your own learning.

  3. Thursday Night: Prepare for the Slope/Rate of Change Assessment on Friday. There are a variety of ways to do that including, but not limited to: review the online pre-assessment; review your notebook and/or the openers and lessons posted on the blog; review the video, work some practice problems in your textbook or that you find online. You can, of course, also get help from me, another math teacher, a teacher in the Study Center, a peer tutor in the Study Center, or a parent, sibling or friend. Do whatever works best for you, but make sure you're prepared. The expectation is that you should all be able to do very well on this assessment.
