Triple whammy

This is the first of three posts I will do today. There has been so much going on, I have not had a chance to upload it all until now! First, I have some pics of my students playing a card matching came in calculus. I have attached a link to one of the matching card sets which I printed out and laminated. Students had to match the equation of a function with its graph,the graph of its 1st and 2nd derivatives, and verbal descriptions of the functions’ graphs. It was a good review activity as we get closer to the (dreaded) AP exam!

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!
