STAR Review

When we get back to school next week, we have a week of classes, and then we have the STAR tests. Instead of trying to jam in a few more concepts, we're just going to review what we've already learned, in game form. I've got "Who wants to be a millionaire?", "Tic Tac Toe Battle Royale", and "Big-L Bingo" ready to go, as well as a triage lesson (when you look at a problem, should you Guess it? Try it? Kill it?) I hope that this will yield an overall positive result. And when the test is complete, my students won't have to see another multiple choice question for the rest of the year.

Quick update

I haven't had much energy lately to post, but I've still been updating my account. We ended unit 5 with polynomial division and we are starting unit 6 (quadratics) with completing the square. We are having our midterm before break this Friday. Over break, I'll post in more detail about some of the recent lessons. For now, feel free to download stuff from the box widget on my blog. As always, feedback on what you find there is much appreciated.
