Unit Test - Section 2: Unit 3 Test

After grading the Unit 3 exams, I noticed there were a number of students who did poorly on the exam. I have decided to offer students an extra credit opportunity that focuses on some of the most important standards of unit 3. This way students continue working on the standards until they have mastered them and the extra credit will help improve their grades.

I told students that if they were interested in the extra credit project they needed to come after school. The first step is that students had to go through their test with a different color pen and figure out the correct answers to problems they got wrong. Then, I choose unique values for each student for each extra credit project which prevents students from comparing answers. Students must create a rough draft for each problem and then meet with me again. I look over work and identify any areas students need to work on further. Students must continue to revise their work until it is completely free of errors. Once I approve their rough draft, I give them poster paper and students must create a colorful and neat poster that explains their work. I plan on posting these examples on one of my bulletin boards.

# Unit Test

Lesson 17 of 17

## Objective: SWBAT: • Show what they know on the unit 3 test.

## Big Idea: What have students learned during this unit? What gaps do students have in their understanding? Students take the Unit 3 test.

#### Do Now

*10 min*

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 apply what they have learned during unit 3 to answer questions involving variables. Students are engaging in **MP7: Look for and make use of structure** and **MP8: Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning**.

I ask students to share what they know about each variable. I ask each student to explain *how *he/she knows this. Students may share that “e” can be 1 ½ or -1 ½. Other students may share that “g” must be -2, because (-2) + 3 = 1. Students may share that since “b” is greater than “c”, it should appear to the *right* of “c” on the number line. Since “d” is greater than “c”, but less than “b”, “d” should fall somewhere between “c” and “d” on the number line.

#### Unit 3 Test

*50 min*

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 schoolwork, or work on the Unit 3 Vocabulary word search.

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