Using Mastery Connect for this test was extremely helpful. So often kids rush through and make careless mistakes, and missing a negative on this test could make or break your score. Therefore, when kids brought up their papers I scanned them and said - you missed 5, go check your work, or you missed 1, go check your work. I didn't tell them which ones they missed, but I gave them an opportunity to analyze their work and look for mistakes, which really supports higher order thinking skills. I am pleased with the results, over 80% of the kids met mastery, which I set at 88%! See attached Item Analysis and Mastery Graph!

# Expressions Test - What have you learned?

Lesson 10 of 10

## Objective: Students will be able to add, subtract, multiply and factor linear expressions.

*62 minutes*

#### Launch

*5 min*

**Opener: **As students enter the room, they will sit down and have 5 minutes to review their notes, discuss with their table, and ask me questions.

**Learning Target: **After completion of the opener, I will address the day’s learning targets to the students. In today’s lesson, the intended targets are, “I can add, subtract, multiply and factor linear expressions.” Students will jot the learning target down in their agendas (our version of a student planner, there is a place to write the learning target for every day).

**Simplifying Expressions Test: **The test consists of 25 multiple choice questions. I will utilize the mastery connect website. As with any test, students will be asked to persevere with problems (**mathematical practice 1**) until they reach a solution, and attention to precision (**mathematical practice 6**) will be very important when combining like terms!
