Tuesday, January 3, 2012

We began with this opener (pdf).

We then talked about how first semester went and about adjustments for second semester. We then learned a bit about multiplying with exponents (lesson, pdf).

Your homework for tomorrow is:
  1. If you haven't yet, review the adjustments for second semester and complete this form indicating that you've read and understand them.
  2. Watch and complete the Exponent Properties Involving Products video.

    Recall that there are three main parts to the video: an examples and explanation part, a Guided Practice part, and a Self-Check part.

    Examples and Explanation
    : Just what it sounds like. I explain how to do the problems and work through some examples. You don't need to write anything down (unless you want to), just watch, listen and learn. Pause the video and replay parts if you need to.

    Guided Practice
    : I give you a problem, then ask you a series of questions with about 5 second pauses between questions for you to think about it and answer it for yourself. If you need to, pause the video to give yourself more time. Again, you don't have to write anything down here (although you can and it's often a good idea to)

    Self-Check: I give you a problem, ask you to pause the video, write the problem down in your notebook and solve it, then play the video again to check your work. You may need to pause the video again to view the solution if you need more time. These problems you definitely need to write down in your notebook and then - this part is new - go to the Moodle and enter your answers for the self-check problems on the Moodle.

  3. If you haven't turned them in yet, remember that your final exam corrections are due by Friday (Haley and Pedro, you do not have to do these.)
