While I was home sick on Friday, my students wrote the first part of the cycle 1 test. Today was part II, focusing on similar triangles and trig. Although I am still sick and really did not enjoy working in a building with no heat (it was -6 Celsius outside this morning), it was nice to be back.
After the actual test questions, I threw this at my students:
I want them to start thinking about how to connect different parts of the curriculum and what makes a good question. This will culminate in their summative task at the end of the semester which is generally very open-ended - given a scenario, students must come up with (good) questions and answer them. I will be curious to see what questions they thought of.
