Analysis of the content and literacy assessment reveals that students do not have a good foundation on decimals and percents. Classroom warm-ups are given the first two days to address these deficiencies. The following worksheets were used:
1. Write decimals from fractions.
2. Change decimals to percents.
3. Solve simple percent problems.
Students have gained an understanding of linear and exponential functions using table of values, recursive, and explicit equations. Now it is time to work more deeply with the graphs and characteristics of linear functions. In the classroom we use the Gizmos application for practicing a performance task and as a formative assessment.
Students complete the performance task and the formative 5 question assessment after completion of the lesson.
