Algebra II Videos and MCAS

April 28, 2013

Dear Parents,

Two topics condensed into one email.

  1. The MCAS Math for 10th grade is two weeks away on May 13/14 (Mon/Tuesday).  In class we've taken a practice test, and completed a unit on Probability and Statistics.  In the next two weeks we'll review the results together.  Please encourage your son or daughter to come X block for extra MCAS practice.  
  2. For Level 5 we are finishing our unit on Logs/Exponentials and we have not had any videos.  After our test I plan to solicit feedback from students via my Google Form on how this unit compares to past units with videos.  Students are adaptable for sure, but what is the optimal learning experience?  In Level 4 we are finishing Rational Functions and there are videos, but I am teaching the material in class and deemphasizing the videos. I will also solicit feedback about this experience.  I am constantly trying to improve from feedback.
Level 4 Rational Functions Test on Tuesday (30th)
Level 5 Logs Test on Monday May 6.  

The end of the year will soon be upon us.  

My best,

Patrick Morrissey

p.s. I plan to make a Google Form to solicit feedback from you too!
