Well, since I'm preparing to start my first year of teaching, I decided that I really needed to finish posting the last few projects I did during my student teaching. During my last week of student teaching, my cooperating teacher asked me to come up with a creative way to review some of the 8th grade math standards. A lot of my students had been struggling with the concept of proportions. With lots of practice, they had been improving, but many students still weren't comfortable with solving proportions. I wanted to show students that proportions were definitely applicable to their lives. So, I created this road trip project. It actually turned into a 3part project because the students were enjoying it so much. Day 1 Day 2 Each student chose 5 cities to travel to on their road trip. Using a ruler, they drew out their route on a US map. Then, using the map scale, students determined the length of their road trip in miles. Day 2 was spent using gas mileage and fuel costs for various vehicles to determine which vehicle students would take on their road trip. On Day 3, we calculated food costs, hotel costs, and rental car costs. By the end of the 3day project, students were much, much, much more comfortable working with ratios and proportions. It was an amazing experience to see the light bulbs go off with so many of my students. Download files here.

Today in Algebra 2 Honors, my students practiced factoring. Yesterday, their homework was to look through their notes and textbook to find the three hardest factoring problems they could find. I told them they could work with friends and bring the same problems, as long as they could tell me why they thought the problem was difficult. My students thought I was joking at first. One boy said, “This is like the easiest homework ever!” and a girl glared at him and hissed, “shut. up. now.”. Super funny. Their bellwork today was to list the “hard problems” on the board. Some of the problems they chose were from their Factoring with Symbols worksheet. Once all the problems were on the board, we worked the problems together. I had a few reasons for doing this: I wanted the students to practice articulating why they didn’t understand something. As a class, we talked about why a problem “looked scary”, then broke it apart together. I kept stressing patterns. I wanted them to get used to seeing challenging problems, and actually working through them. This is a tiny baby step I’m taking to try to teach perseverance in problem solving. My students were much more focused because I was working “their” problems. A few of them were impressed that I could factor the problems on command. Come on guys, it’s my 4th year teaching the same course using the same textbook. I practically have those problems memorized. When we finished working the “hard problems”, I had my kids do a set of matching cards with a partner. They were supposed to match a polynomial with the factored polynomial. I also gave them dry erase markers so that they could use their desks as scratch paper. They LOVE writing on their desks. I like to copy the problems in a different color from the solutions when I make matching cards. It's easier for the kids to start working when they know what they're supposed to match. If you’d like to use these cards in your classroom, you can download them for free from my Teachers Pay Teachers store, just click on the picture below!

I call warmups "Bellwork". I heard it once and thought it was cute. Bellwork  work you do when the bell rings. I am very strict about my beginning of class routine. My kids come in, check their homework, and start their bellwork. I'm "so mean" that I even expect them to start working before the bell rings (or so I've been told). Once their bellwork is finished, I'm usually ready to start class. It's a personal pet peeve when kids are noisy at the beginning of class. I also need to take attendance and check their homework. 90% of the time, this is what you will see: Kids walk in and pick up the key for the previous night's homework. They check their homework while I walk around and check it for completion. Then, the kids put their homework key away and get their notebook out of the cabinet. Then, they work on their bellwork and put away their notebook when they're finished. Since they start before the bell rings, they are totally done with this within the first 57 minutes of class. Sometimes, I plan for the bellwork to take a little longer so that I can give them review time. Other times, I make it very short so that we can get started as soon as possible. This works for me. It makes the beginning of every class smooth. It gives me a mental "reset" if the previous class period was stressful. Bellwork. I'm a huge fan. What does your beginning of class routine look like?
