Reflection: High Expectations Exponential and Logarithmic Functions Review Day 1 - Section 1: Warm Up and Homework Review

 

I am constantly trying to improve my student’s ability to explain their thinking in writing.  My warm ups are a regular part of this.  I think today’s warm up is so rich because students not only review how to simplify a rational exponent but also compare the expressions' structure to figure which is the largest.  I had a lot of students that just did the problems and then compared them like Warm Up 1. This did give them a review but they didn’t use many higher level thinking skills.  Many students, like Warm Up 2 and Warm Up 3, gave me some amazing thinking (correct and incorrect) without solving at all.  I also had a few that solved them and justified their reasoning like Warm Up 4.  I think this was the best and most advanced method that I would love to see all my students achieve.  To increase the understanding of the class and hopefully improve future responses,  I picked several particularly exemplary students to share out.
