Sarah S's class
To do for each section:
The outline: I will start by assigning readings and assessments.
Some of these assignments you won't have trouble with, and others you
will. Please start each subsection by doing a quick-read of the
assigned readings, and then trying all of the homework (formative
assessment) problems. Then, figure out what topics the problems
you can't figure out have in common, and send me an e-mail asking about
those problems. I'll get back to you within a couple of days with
answers, and then you should finish the assessment items. Submit
the formative assessments first. You should get feedback on them
within two days, at which time you can do the summative (quiz-type)
Unit 1: 3D geometry and measurement
Unit 2: Fractions, ratios, etc.
Ratios and similar figures
Adding and subtracting fractions
Multiplying and dividing fractions
Unit 3: Probability and Statistics
The plan for grading:
There will be formative, open book, assessments, and summative, closed
book/notes assessments for each sub topic.
Formative weighted 25% of the grade, summative assessments 75% of
the grade. There will be no long term tests unless it looks like
you could be getting better than a B.
