On Wednesday we finished going over the Course Outline, and then started warming up our math brains with some mental math practice. We used our personal whiteboards and class flashcards, and then did some mad minutes.
On Thursday we did the Math 9 pre-assessment, to find out where each student is at. This will help to make sure that we know where each student is starting from, and we can then place them in the classroom where they can be the most successful. There will be a few students changing classrooms on Monday. We will start into the real Math 9 curriculum on Monday.
At the end of class on Thursday and during Friday's class, we played with some flashcards and used the iPads to get to know some great math resources such as FreeRice.com, Soft Schools Math Games and Khan Academy. These will be great resources for all of Math 9 and the rest of high school as well!
