We then spent some time reviewing the first four topics on the Math Skills Assessment and each group presented on a particular skill. Please take a look at the following images and critique them (nicely, thoughtfully, helpfully). (Click on each image to view it larger.)
Group 1: Adding and Subtracting Fractions
Group 2: Adding and Subtracting Mixed Numbers
Group 4: Multiplying and Dividing Mixed Numbers
Group 5: Adding and Subtracting Integers
Group 6: Multiplying and Dividing Integers
Group 7: Order of Operations
What could we do better next time to make a better visual explanation of a math topic? Feel free to leave a comment on this post (use your lpsk12.org login please). You don't have to leave a comment tonight, but I will ask you to leave one as part of tomorrow night's homework, so you might just want to go ahead and do that.
Your homework for tonight is:
- Review for the first four topics on the Math Skills Assessment. You'll be assessed over these skills tomorrow. Don't spend too much time on it, but review any of them you're a little fuzzy on.
- If you haven't completed the assignments from last night, please do so, as they are due by first period tomorrow.
Make sure you try all your logins (computer at school if you have time, definitely google apps, LPS Campus Portal, and the Moodle). Let me know if you have any difficulties - we'll get them figured out.
- Not due until Friday, but leave a comment on this post (using your lpsk12.org login) giving some constructive feedback to one or more of the groups.
