Big Idea

Students review for the Unit 2 test by completing stations.

Do Now

5 minutes

See my Do Now video 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 think about what they have learned throughout the unit.  I have students share out with the class.

Review Stations

40 minutes

There are many ways to do stations.  Today I am going to have students choose where they would like to sit.  I set out the copies of the stations throughout the room.  I Post A Key for each station somewhere in the classroom.  I review expectations for the day.

Students are engaging in MP1: Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them as well as MP6:  Attend to precision.  Students can move at their own pace, each time they complete a station, they check in with me.  I quickly scan the work.  If they are on track, I send them to check their answers at the key.  If I see repeated mistakes I circle the problems and have them return to work on them.  Once they have successfully completed a station, they check it off on their To Do List and move on to another station.

At the end of the work time, I hand around several staplers for students to staple their station worksheets together.

Closure and Ticket to Go

15 minutes

 For Closure I ask students to share their thinking about problem 15 on Part 6: Word Problems.  What is going on in the problem?  How did you decide what to do?  How much did it cost for each student?  Then I ask similar questions about problem 16.  I want to see how students are working through word problems and determining how to solve them.  Lastly, I ask them how to figure out #2 on Part 8: Percents.  In this problem they know that 10% of an amount is $2.50 and they have to figure out the original amount.  I ask students what they know and what they are trying to figure out.  I want students to recognize that they can multiply 10% by 10 to get 100% of the money.  I ask a student to use the percent ruler to show me what he/she is thinking.

With about 7-8 minutes left I pass out the Ticket to GoI will use this data to Create Homogeneous Groups in the next lesson (Unit 2 Closure).  For Homework, I tell students that they need to complete the stations that they did not finish.  If some students have not completed a large amount, I will give them an extra day or two to complete the work.  These may be students who need extra help and I may work with them in a small group on these review stations during the next day’s lesson (Unit 2 Closure).
