I wrote some conversions on the board for them as they seemed to need a push to get started. Some of my students spent the entire day yesterday writing the literacy test and were wiped out today...
Here is what they came up with:
We did the second warm up quickly by a show of hands. Here was what we looked at:
No hands went up for "always", about half for "sometimes" and none for "never". It was one of those days. We talked about why and that you only need one counter-example to disprove something.
Then it was on to finishing the spaghettini bridges handout. I gave them a few minutes to ensure that they all had an equation to represent their data. They had trouble explaining the numbers in their equation so we discussed it together. I wrote down a few of the equation they found and we went over the meaning of the slope and of the y-intercept and we talked about the need to round values to a whole number.
They continued with the questions on the handout and those who finished started with this handout intended to reinforce what they know about slope and y-intercept. Thanks to my colleague, Michelle, for creating this one.
