Flerkus! Day 2:
Ss going to all kinds of tech models, which is cool, but some of them need to draw it out first!
Left behind a few hanging hints as I leave for a few days. Good luck!
1/3 thing almost done in geometry, United We Solve puzzles might be my advisory plan for the rest of the year, trying to represent plotting point in Jonathan Claydon's 3D constructions.
Busy week, trying to get everything done before the weekend and didn't get around to posting until now.
Tuesday: Helping a Foundations student with his probability project.
Wednesday: Test walks in Precal and more of John Rowe's Reversing the Question in Geometry. Got the whole class engaged (see below).
Thursday: Normal Distribution Question Stack from @druinok by way of Sarah Carter. Awesome review/practice for a subject that can get stale for me sometimes.
Friday: Mashup of a couple of Desmos activities to introduce rational function vocab in Precal (thanks Hannah Schuchhardt for the inspiration for the last few slides).
Whew! Almost no schoolwork to do this weekend! Graded tests, set up Monday and Tuesday for next week, wrote tests for next week. Been kind of a blur...
Rediscovered John Rowe's Reversing the Question problems. This provided a 30-minute discussion for these geometry students (very new to trig).
Trying to ameliorate test-stress. Took a couple of breaks, took a walk, students could discuss problems, then back to the test. Feedback was great, but haven't assessed the responses yet...
Using the rubric to punch up our responses. Ss did these in groups to assess their previous answers.
Little bit of a proof explosion today in geometry: here are some basic definitions of quadrilaterals. What properties can you come up with using congruent triangles? Ended with a board proof. Can't write on the f'n board cause of my shoulder! Puppeted some ss through it.
