8:20-9:15: A-Block Geometry. Today in class we reviewed for a quiz tomorrow. I created Scavenger Hunt Stations to practice identifying special quadrilaterals, and finding interior and exterior angles of polygons. These are the station cards and worksheet that went along with the activity!
9:20-11:10: Planning! I have both of my plannings in the morning. During this time I finished planning for my algebra 1 class and printed quizzes for the next day. I also have a Delta Math assignment due tomorrow, so I had about 6 students coming in and out asking questions (they had drop) during the last 30 minutes of planning.
11:15-12:00: LUNCH!!! Woohooo! The math department shares an office, so we all ate lunch together 🙂
2:05-3:00: Algebra 1- We are currently working on scatter plots. Today I introduced coefficient correlations and we played Guess the Correlation all together! I also through together a few other examples not from that site. My students then worked through a Linear Regression Demos Activity about Gray Wolves. My students loved giving the math context. When they all finished, we discuss the activity. I then had them play an AWESOME scatter plot polygraph. Fun class!
3:00-3:30 – Helped students.
3:30-4:30- Teacher yoga! I usually don’t do yoga twice in one day, but I was just feeling it today.
4:30-5:15- Finished up some work to prepare for tomorrow.
5:45- Home for the night!
6:00 Made some perogies for dinner (healthy I know) and put on some Parenthood!
Now I am still watching Parenthood while writing this blog post, and I will probably be heading to sleep soon!
