Proportional Reasoning Retest - REWIND and Try Again! - Section 2: Explore

MUCH better :) After grading the second round of tests, I am left with only 12 students that are not at my level of proficiency (80%). Some common mistakes on the retest were simplifying incorrectly, or using division instead of multiplication when using a unit rate to make a prediction. (For example, if Marie's unit rate is 4 miles per hour, how far can she run in 3 hours, a lot of kids did 4 times 1/3 instead of times 3).

For the students that are still not proficient with the material, I plan to pull them in during our focus time in the mornings to provide them more individualized instruction. I will allow them to retest again, (and again!) until they are able to show me that they have mastered the concept.

# Proportional Reasoning Retest - REWIND and Try Again!

Lesson 14 of 14

## Objective: Students will represent proportional relationships via graphs, tables, equations, and words.

*60 minutes*

#### Opener

*10 min*

**Opener: **As students enter the room they will immediately pick up and begin working on the opener –Instructional Strategy - Process for openers. This method of working and going over the opener lends itself to allow students to construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others, which is **mathematical practice 3**.

**Learning Target: **After completion of the opener, I will address the day’s learning targets to the students. In today’s lesson, the intended target is, “I can represent proportional relationships via graphs, tables, equations and words. I can calculate unit rates and use them to solve problems.” 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).

**Retest: **Retest Explore Video This test utilizes **mathematical practices 1, 4, and 6.** Students are perservering with problems on their own until they can reach a solution, and they are showing their knowledge in a variety of ways - graphs, equations, tables, and words. Additionally, students must pay close attention to precision when showing their work - remember to put y over x, and simplifying fractions correctly.

#### Summary

*5 min*

**Note to Teacher: **As a wrap up to the retest, I am curious to see how students are feeling this time. Was it easier? Did they like fill in versus multiple choice? This note gives students a chance to reflect :)
