Graphing Linear Equations Using Slope-Intercept Form Assessment (pdf).

Lesson (pdf).

Your homework for tonight is:
  1. Check the portal for the results of your assessment, fill out your student checklist with your results, and make a plan for retake (if necessary), including making an appointment online. You have to score at least a 4.5 out of 5 to be considered proficient. If you score less than a 4.5, then you'll need to come in and re-assess. (If you score a 4.5, you can also choose to come in and re-assess to try to get the 5 - I highly encourage that, but don't require it). If you score below a 3.5, then it will show in the grade book as "missing" (which counts like a 0) until you come in and re-assess at least one time. (It's really important to master these skills as we go along, which is why I put it as missing to make sure you come in and re-assess.)

  2. Work on your slide(s) for Slope Rida. Remember that your final draft is due no later than before you go to bed Sunday night (and preferably earlier.) Don't forget to share it with me in some way before you go to bed on Sunday night (here's the original assignment).

  3. Prepare for the Writing Linear Equations in Slope-Intercept Form Assessment tomorrow. There are a variety of ways to do that including, but not limited to: review the online pre-assessment; review your notebook and/or the openers and lessons posted on the blog; review the video, work some practice problems in your textbook or that you find online. You can, of course, also get help from me, another math teacher, a teacher in the Study Center, a peer tutor in the Study Center, or a parent, sibling or friend. Do whatever works best for you, but make sure you're prepared. The expectation is that you should all be able to do very well on this assessment tomorrow.


  4. Begin reviewing for the midterm next Wednesday, including completing the Midterm Online Pre-Assessment on the Moodle. There are four parts so that you can break it up into shorter sessions, but you should complete all four parts before Monday so that you can get any questions answered. Each part should take between 5 and 15 minutes and, as always, you can take them multiple times if you didn't do so well the first time (after seeing the worked out solution, try it again). I'd highly recommend not waiting until the last minute and perhaps doing one part per night.
