SWBAT: • Show what they know on the unit 2 test.

Big Idea

What have students learned during this unit? What gaps do students have in their understanding? Students take the Unit 2 test.

Do Now

7 minutes

See my Do Now in my Strategy folder that explains my beginning of class routines.

Often, I create do nows that have problems that connect to the task that students will be working on that day.  Here I want students to take a few minutes to identify equivalent values.  Students participate in a Think Pair Share with their partner to talk about their matches.  I am looking to see what connections students make and how they justify them.  Do they recognize that 1/20 is equivalent to 5/100 or 5%?  Do they realize that 0.055 is equal to 5.5% and 55/1000?  

Unit 2 Test

53 minutes

I review testing expectations and students move their desks apart.  I pass out the test and students work quietly.  Students are engaging in MP1: Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them as well as MP6:  Attend to precision

When students finish, I ask them to check their work.  Once they have done this they can choose to read quietly, work on other school work, or work on the dot-to-dot puzzles. 

If students do not finish the test, I set up a time (preferably today or the next day) for them to complete their work.
