## Reflection: Checks for Understanding The Luckiest Man in the World: Graphing Exponential and Linear Functions - Section 4: Exit Ticket: The Luckiest Man on Earth (revisited)

I like to have an entry ticket and exit ticket for many of my classes as a classroom routine to check student understanding before and after class.

For the lesson on graphing linear and exponential functions, I focused the entry and exit tickets on comparing and contrasting linear and exponential functions with two different lottery scenarios.

For the first student sample, I was pleased with the level of understanding in the Entry Ticket Sample 1, as well as the Exit Ticket Sample 1. I was especially pleased with the level of complexity demonstrated in the Exit Ticket Written Response Sample 1, as writing about math is a skill that many of my students struggle with and that I focus on improving in the classroom.

The Entry Ticket Sample 2 and the Exit Ticket Sample 2 again demonstrates a solid beginning understanding of the concepts as well as growth from the beginning to the end of the lesson.

Formative assessments with a pre-post design can be powerful tools to not only assess student work, but also can help teachers focus their lesson on the priority concepts and skills to be taught.
