SWBAT: • Show what they know about ratios.

Big Idea

What do students understand? What gaps do they have in their understanding? Before the quiz, students play some online games to review.

Do Now

5 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.  Today I have students review expectations for computers, since we will use them for review.  I call on students to share the expectations for retrieving and using laptops.

Online Quiz Review

15 minutes


Before students get their laptops, I preview the websites and the possible games they can play.  I call students to get their laptops.  As students play, I walk around and monitor student progress.

With three minutes left, I tell students to log off and plug their laptops back into the cart.


30 minutes

I give students the Quiz.  Students engage with MP1: Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.  If students do not finish in the allotted time, they set up a time (preferably that day) to come in and complete it.  I use this data to inform my instruction.   If students struggle with a concept, I will spiral it into do nows and homework assignments.  I may also add a few problems on that topic to the next quiz.
