Midterm Exam - Section 1: Review

It's always good to give students ownership of their learning when possible. Rather than provide a review sheet for students, another alternative would be to have them create the review sheet for the midterm. I would give each group a topic and have them write a problem. It's important to discuss with students the components of a "good" question. Otherwise students may create a problem that is too simplistic or one that is overly complicated to the point that it may not make sense.

Students would not only have to provide the problem, but also the answer with work and a brief explanation of the steps. They could use their notes, textbooks, or other sources for "inspiration", but they would be instructed that it has to be an original problem.

Students would receive packet of all their problems on one day and then a packet of the solutions the following day.

# Midterm Exam

Lesson 3 of 3

## Objective: SWBAT show their understanding of previous topics.

*90 minutes*

#### Review

*10 min*

Many students do not understand or know how to study for a math exam. They believe that the best way to study is to read through their notes, rather than work on problems similar to past problems.

To give students additional practice problems on the midterm topics, I will give them a 6th Grade Math Midterm Review Sheet prior to the exam. I will explain to students that, first, they should work on the review sheet without using their notes. If there are problems that they uncertain of, they should use their notes to help them.

#### Administering the Exam

*80 min*

Students should be given about 60 to 80 minutes to complete the 6th grade midterm. Although the exam is multiple choice, students should be given scrap paper on which to perform any math work.
