- Check the portal for the results of your assessment and make a plan for retake (if necessary), including making an appointment online. You have to score at least a 4.5 out of 5 to be considered proficient. If you score less than a 4.5, then you'll need to come in and re-assess. (If you score a 4.5, you can also choose to come in and re-assess to try to get the 5 - I highly encourage that, but don't require it). If you score below a 3.5, then it will show in the grade book as "missing" (which counts like a 0) until you come in and re-assess at least one time. (It's really important to master these skills as we go along, which is why I put it as missing to make sure you come in and re-assess.)
- Complete the Define and Use Zero and Negative Exponents Pre-Assessment on the Moodle. I would recommend perhaps doing this on the weekend before we come back so that you can refresh your memory after a week off.
- Look back at your Exponents Blog Post and revise it if you need to (got it wrong, didn't explain, etc.). Please email me after you've revised it so that I can grade it.
- You can always head over to Braingenie for more practice on anything we've done so far.
- Start studying for the final exam. Seriously.
As I mentioned in class, an excellent way to study for the final is to watch one Algebra video a day starting tomorrow, then every day until just before finals week (yes, that includes next week when you're off, and includes weekends). Obviously you can double-up on some days if you miss a day, but if you're willing to spend 8-10 minutes a day over the next three plus weeks you'll be well-prepared for the final. You don't have to work the problems (unless you want to), just sit back, watch and listen to help you review (you will need to focus, don't try to multi-task while doing this.)
I'll post one video a day on the blog, in the order we did them, starting tomorrow. Look for them. This is completely optional, but highly recommended. Or you can wait, try to cram a couple of hours the night before, and take your chances.
It's up to you.
