So the "this is so easy Mrs. Snell! We learned this in 7th grade" slope and slope intercept quiz didn't go exactly as they or I planned. The class average was a 60% for all 5 classes.
This teacher was not happy.
It was a Monday quiz after our Friday scare below, so in theory some of the kids may not have seen me for almost a week. If they con't see me it's like math magically disappears..... and then poof it's there to ruin their lives again.
So this week instead of moving on to Point Slope we are going back over Slope and Slope Intercept again with just a dash of Parallel and Perpendicular lines.
They have to understand slope and equations to leave Algebra 1 - no ifs, ands or buts about it.
So these were the updated notes we added for the upcoming quiz. All of these ideas come from Sarah Hagan's - Math Equals Love Blog.
