Exam Reminders and Cancellations due to Inclement Weather
I began the class today by taking up any questions the students had from the homework I assigned on Fri Jan 16 which were the worksheets titled “Adding & Subtracting Polynomials Worksheet” and “Using Distributive Property Worksheet” (see the Jan 16 blog posting for further details). After taking up these worksheets, I then told the students we would be starting review for the final exam. I first went over a specific breakdown of the exam. I then put questions on the board and had them try them at their desks. Once the students had a chance to write something down, I then called students up to the board to put up their answers. We then took up the questions as a class. We did this for the remainder of the period. I told the students we would continue this activity for the next 3 days (exam review ends on Thur Jan 22). On Jan 14 I assigned a package titled “MFM1P Exam Review #1” which I gave the students after they wrote booklet 1 of EQAO. I told the students that they are to do this package for homework tonight, if they haven’t already, and that I would take it up at the start of class tomorrow. I also assigned another exam review for the students that are finished the first review titled “MFM1P Exam Review #2”. I will take up the questions from this review package at the start of class on Wed Jan 20. Students can email me directly if they have any questions about either reviews (email@example.com).
