Reflection: Unit Exams Summative Assessment - Section 2: Testing!


I expected that some of my students would struggle with the last two problems because they are "story problems" but only one student was completely lost.  All the others demonstrated a good understanding of using the geometric sum formulas but made arithmetic mistakes and/or misinterpreted the question.  I did not anticipate that only one student would get problem #5 correct.  Apparently we needed to spend more time working with rational numbers as shown in this sample of student work on Problem #5!  This actually follows what my students indicated they were concerned about on yesterday's notecards so I will try to provide more opportunities to work with rationals as we move forward.  This reflection will also serve as reminder when I get to this unit next year!
