REMINDER: WE HAVE AN ASSEMBLY TOMORROW AT THE END OF THE DAY. THIS IS OUR GST (GOOD SAMARITAN TEAM) ASSEMBLY SO THERE IS A REVISED SCHEDULE FOR THE DAY AND CLASS ARE SHORTENED. BELOW IS A COPY OF THE SCHEDULE.
GST (Good Samaritan Team) Revised Day Schedule
I began the class today by letting the students know that they would be having a test most likely on Monday October 6 on Chapter 4 of their textbook (Ratios & Proportions). I will let the students know for sure by Thursday October 2 if they will be having their unit test on Monday.
After talking to the students about their test, I then went into the new lesson for today which was titled “Using Algebra to Solve a Problem”. I went over a number of examples before assigning the homework. I told the students that I would be assigning a few questions from the last section (4.4 Applying Proportional Reasoning) to their homework for tonight because I did not assign any yesterday (this if from section 4.5). But before assigning the homework, I told the students that I wanted to do a short activity with them to make sure they were understanding the concepts. I put a few questions on the board and told the students to try them at their desk. I then went around the room and help the students. I then took pictures with my Ipad of students’ work that I had verified as being correct and then put it up on the digital projector so we could take them up. I then assigned the homework for the students to work on for the remainder of the period (Page 130 #7-10; pages 133 & 134 #1 – 6).
