60 Seconds to Perfection Club

 

I started a reward club for my student for students this year based partially on the mathematics practice standard 6 – attend to precision.    As you can see from the test analysis sheets we use, students can miss one question and still attain mastery for answering four out of five correctly.  To Encourage attention to detail and rewarding perfect tests I created the 60 Seconds to Perfection Club which includes a very nice certificate of membership and a Minute to Win It challenge.  I like to tell the students, “Your life is about to get interesting, for a very short while (one minute).”
