Reflection: Intervention and Extension Zero to Hero - Section 3: Wrap It Up


These exit tickets help me identify areas of strength and areas that will need support for each student as shown in these definitions.  Student A seems to have a pretty good grasp of zeros, although he needs to work on his mathematical vocabulary a bit.  For example, his definition would have been stronger if he'd mentioned the graph of a function rather than just saying "graph".  The definition given by Student B is a lot more vague so I'll need to check in with her to make sure she understands that not every point with a zero necessarily is a "zero", for example (0,3).  She also makes no mention of functions, so it's difficult to tell if she's made the connection between zeros on the graph and solutions for x when a function is set to equal zero.
