#### Warm up and Homework Review

I include Warm ups with a **Rubric** as part of my daily routine. My goal is to allow students to work on **Math Practice 3** each day. Grouping students into homogeneous pairs provides an opportunity for appropriately differentiated math conversations. This lesson’s Warm Up- Rational Functions Quiz asks students to analyze a negative exponent problem. This problem came from and amazing website that focuses on collecting and discussing mathematical errors that students produce.

I also use this time to correct and record the previous day's Homework.

#### Rational Functions Quiz

There are two versions of this quiz which I pass out by row or checkerboard. This quiz has a range of quotients of monomials, transfromations, and a modeling problem. As with most topics in Algebra 2, students need to be able to perform the skill and reason with the concepts, so this quiz addresses both.

These quizzes where created with Kuta Software which is one of my favorite math resources.

I offer a variety of Extra Credit puzzles for students who finish early and have no make up work to complete. This includes, but is not limited to; sudoku, mathdoku, logic problems, picture mazes, and pixel puzzles. A couple of my favorites are: Griddlers and Conceptis puzzles.

Both sites offer a number of free puzzles as well as purchasable books. Pixel Puzzles are a particular favorite. The Mathdoku are also great. They can increase a student's numeracy abilities if done regularly.
