Tuesday I was out of the classroom attending the Kentucky Mathematics Leadership Network Training
Tuesday 2/22/11 Target #1 – Factor Pairs Assignment ( I promise this is not busy work, but a resource tool for students to use in upcoming lessons!)
Tuesday 2/22/11 Target #2 – Notes were given over the exponent properties for :Product Rule, Quotient Rule, Negative Exponents, Zero Exponent, Power of a Power, Power of a Product and Power of a Quotient – most students have already covered these topics in Cognitive Tutor Lessons. Assignment wkst #1-38
Wednesday 2/23/11 Students were given the opportunity to self-assess their HW. Notes and discussion was driven by student questions / misconceptions. A few investigative questions were posed to enhance the understanding of the negative exponent and zero exponent rules using calculators.
Assignment 2/23/11 to redo any missed or incomplete problems. Mini Quiz on Thursday for Target #2.
