Math News Letter: October 2019

Our year has gotten off to a good start.  The students are settling into a routine that is working.


As some of you know I teach 8th PreAlgebra, Algebra, Geometry, and Algebra 2 as Flipped Classes. That is, I have prepared the lecture on Video, placed it in our Google Classroom, and expect the students to have watched the video before they come to class. When they come to class they are expected to have a seat and begin working on the assignment. My time during class is spent walking around the room answering questions as the students complete the assignment. I have analyzed data from the past six years and found that based on tests scores student perform better in a Flipped Classroom.


That is the ideal situation. Some days it seems some of the students have not watched the video before the come to class. When this happens, I will lecture for those students who have not watched the video. I will answer all questions from those students who have watched and are working on the assignment, at the time they have a question. For those students who have the opportunity to listen to the lecture, they generally do not complete their assignment during class and therefore have work to complete outside of the classroom. At times even students who have watched the video will have assignments to be completed outside of the classroom.


As always, please contact me if you have any questions.
