## Reflection: Quizzes Show What You Know about Expressions, Equations, & Inequalities - Section 3: Quiz

Many students were able to figure out the correct answer for problem 14.  A few students answered (d).  These students believe that 4/3 + 1/3 = 5/6.  These students believe that they need to add the numerator and denominator when you are adding fractions.  I will continue to work with these students to build up their fraction knowledge.

Some students struggled with problem 16.  Some students chose (a) because it worked with the first values in the tables.  Other students choose (b) because when they multiply the y values by 3 they get the x value.  I have included problems that are similar to this problem in additional homework assignments.  I emphasize to students that their equation must match all values in the table.

Many students were able to correctly answer problem 19.  Some students correctly answered problem 19, but their equation in problem 18 did not work.  As feedback, I asked students what they did to answer #19 and then asked them how to show this in an equation involving x and y.  Sometimes it is easier for students to calculate an answer for a specific x-value and then write a matching equation, rather than writing the equation first.

I passed back the quizzes to students with comments and questions.  Students have the option of retaking the quiz (a different version) for a higher grade (up to 90%).  If students want to take the retake, they must first correct all of their mistakes on this quiz and then review with me.
