MPM2D - Day 27: Test, Day 2

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.

    1. Ha! Hopefully it is just temporary. The boiler is being replaced, but no ETA on that yet.

  2. Whew. Still, I'm guessing us weak-kneed Pennsylvanians would stay home a few days.
