Algebra Camp Day One

UNO mac lab

This week, I am helping out with an algebra camp that is being put on by the UNO Curriculum and Instruction department through Dr. Yvelyne Germain-McCarthy.  My students will be taking pictures and writing about what we do each day, and I will post it here.  Today we spent some time getting to know one another.  We began with bingo and discussing expectations.  Then we went to the mac lab and visited hanssoft.com where students can find math games that will help them practice their basic skills in pre-algebra and algebra.  Students also visited louisianapass.org  to take an assessment that will be used to determine algebra readiness.  We finished up with an activity that helped reinforce the need for everyone to work together this week in order for the camp to be successful.  I am looking forward to a great week!
