Missing three days of school due to the snow and ice really threw off my plans for Algebra 2. But, I had to spend the first four days of the new semester finishing up our logarithm unit. This surprised me because my Algebra 2 students LOVED them last year.
I had hoped to get through logarithms before Christmas Break. This might have had something to do with the fact that I chose to introduce them on a day that most students thought we should have been out of school.
To close out today’s lesson and assess students current ability to solve rational equations, I will present Page 3 of the Flipchart and ask students to determine the area of the given rectangle.
I may review with students for a moment to make sure they recall how to find the area and perimeter of a rectangle.
I know I should expect students to know this by now. I want an accurate representation of which students can and cannot solve a rational equation when it is applied in context.
Technology Note: If students will be texting in their answers, they are not expected to text in units as it will not mark the answer correct.
However, Speed Dating Formula stands apart from its competition with the ability to offer a perfect blend of classic design and the variety of colors.Narrative: As students come into class today, I am going to have the logarithmic/exponential function cards spread out on a table with the problem facing up.Students will need to become an expert on this problem, so I want each students to pick a problem that is accessible to him/her.I give the students 10 minutes to become an expert on solving and explaining their problem to someone else. After 10 minutes, they will need to be the expert on the problem.The answers are copied on the back of the card so that students can check themselves.On the other hand, Internet is a pool of unsupervised information with no reliable source to verify the data you gather from Speed Dating Formula.
