Students have to write in a log every time they do not turn in their homework on time and explain themselves. This helps teachers keep track of how many times the same student does not do his/her homework, makes students think about why they did not do their homework, and establishes accountability.

Five For Friday - Test Prep and Angry Birds

An educational blog

I have done a project similar to this. It adds more rigor if students create their own equations and develop their own design. I usually have them create a certain number of each type of line, have them identify slope, y-intercept, etc. to cover more of what I am teaching on the concept.

How can you Measure Student Engagement?

Have you ever wondered if your students are engaged in their learning? I have often wondered this and wondered how I could measure it. So, some colleagues and I have come up with what is called the "ENGAGEMENT WHEEL." It is a way to reflect on an hour of your day that you have taught and try to give it an ENGAGEMENT score. The higher the score the more engaged your class was. The engagement wheel measures what your students are doing. The engagement wheel score is most accurate when looking…

For those lucky enough to have a smart board...All Things Algebra: Exponent Rules Koosh!

Exponent Rules Koosh!

Now that my students know product, power and quotient rule, I introduced them to the negative exponent rule today. It went over really well. I have them follow the exact rules above to simplify everything, then move any variable with a negative exponent to the denominator at the end of the problem. Once I was confident that they had that concept down, it was game time!! I made this Koosh Ball game about 4 years ago and play it every year. The kids LOVE it. I pulled two desks to the front and…
