Many students voted Math as their favorite subject this year. Great! We'll be using interactive DVD warm ups, video resources that introduce and review key concepts in engaging ways, and colorful, easy-to-use textbooks with comprehensive and easy-to-use online software support for at-home practice. I love the real-world links, and how clearly the kids will be able to follow the subject matter and pre-test, check for knowledge as they go along, as well as cummulatively assess their learning at every stage. You can count on weekly math quizzes throughout the year on Fridays, and quiz "Math Repairs" will almost always be the norm before a final grade is given. Monday's "Math Repairs" let me and the students see the difference between simple calculation errors and conceptual mistakes that require reteaching.
