- I can find the line of symmetry and vertex of a quadratic function.
Unit 10: Statistics
- I can organize and analyze bivariate data.
My (Brief) Reflection:
- Units 1 and 2 were boring for many of my students this year, but things I perceived my students the previous year to need. Also things I think many students benefited from. I would like to do some sort of pretest to see which students could benefit from what...but that will be complicated...
- I want to integrate statistics into my other units. It gives a setting to apply the other learning that is "real-world" and then I won't save it until the end and end up not being able to do it.
- I need to focus somewhere on "rate of change" a little bit more...maybe since we didn't really do a linear functions unit this year that struggled.
- I would like to take time to compare these to the original learning targets I planned out and decide which I prefer for which units.
So here they are to borrow, steal, or edit! Enjoy :)
