Each day, students complete a warm-up that usually consists of spiraling the previous day's material, in addition to older material.  Warm-up problems also sometimes extend lessons that students have encountered before to more unfamiliar contexts.

The homework file is a resource that generally includes 5-7 problems that consist of problems related to this lesson, as well as spiraled review.  I also give the kids the answers to the problems. 


Sometimes, the HW file is a take-home assessment.
