Reflection: Unit Exams Pre-Assessment Multiplying and Dividing Rational Numbers - Section 1: Teacher Guided Notes


When I say my students are so dependent on the calculators, this may be an understatement.  One thing I learned from the pre-assessment is that the students will need major practice without using the calculator.  It was almost as if I took their right to eat lunch away for the entire year.  There were tears, shut downs, blow outs, and of course the all time favorite " I'm not doing this stupid test."  I took a deep breath, found my inner zen and attempted to empower them the best I could.  Some never attempted, others tried, some guessed, and some took a hard felt attempt.  This is okay.  It is what helps me guide where to go with them during the unit or upcoming lessons.
