Reflection: Student Feedback Using Numbers to Predict the Future - Section 2: Group Activity: Weighted Averages

 

This lesson is one of my favorites. Students appreciate this lesson because they always have questions about it, they begin making real world connections to their grades and attempt to predict their final grades given varying assignment and quiz outcomes. This takes more than one lesson to solidify I often have to remind students throughout the year when discussing grades. The best visual representation that helps explain this concepts are pie chart examples. This reiterates the value of the weights and help students grapple with calculations.
