Why CPM?

Wondering why we’re using this new resource instead of a traditional math textbook paired with taking notes and doing example problems every day?  Check out this article and the research cited in it.  As always, I’m happy to discuss any of this with you!


Test Retake Policy

Things to know about retakes:

1. Sign up by the deadline.  If you sign up, you are expected to show up.  If you do not show up, you will be ineligible for the next test retake.

2. Be on time for the test.  Out of respect for people taking the test, the door will be closed and locked at 2:25 pm.  Be sure you’re in the room before then!

3. Have HW done – the assignment will be taken from the blog; if you don’t have it done AND CHECKED, your retake score will not count and you will not be eligible for the next retake opportunity.  The homework must be in the CPM section of your binder, with the problems in numerical order.  I will look in your binder during the test; if I can’t easily find the assignment, it will not be accepted.

5. The retake is on the same chapter, but not necessarily on the exact same problems as the original chapter test.  There were lots of topics covered in Chapter 1, not all of which showed up on the Chapter 1 test.  Just because it wasn’t on the Chapter 1 test doesn’t mean it won’t be on the Chapter 1 retake.

6. The retake score will be entered in the gradebook.  Grades demonstrate learning – either positive or negative learning – and will be reflective thereof.

Please let me know if you have any questions or anything is unclear!  Happy studying!

Today, we checked the homework and started discussing summation notation.  HW is 2-38 through 2-45.

Test retake is Wednesday.  Sign up ends today.  See next post for info about test retakes.

October 6, 2017

Today we finished our discussion of transforming piecewise functions, and moved on to becoming familiar with periodic functions.  HW: 2-22 through 2-30.

Announcements: Test retake next Wednesday after school.  In order to retake the Chapter 1 Test, you must sign up, be on time, and have all of the Chapter 1 homework completed and checked.

October 5, 2017

Today, we checked last night’s homework and started on lesson 2.1.2 – translating piecewise functions.  Problems 2-15 to 2-18 were the work in class.  No homework tonight.  We’ll finish 2.1.2 tomorrow by discussing periodic functions.

October 4, 2017

Today, we went over the Chapter 1 Test, the scoring scale, the retake policy, and the content.  In addition, we reflected on the experience and brainstormed ways to improve for the upcoming chapters.  In addition, we began to develop an understanding of continuity of functions.

Tutoring this week on Wednesday (no Thursday because I have a meeting) or by appointment (send me an email).

October 3, 2017

Today, we started Chapter 2!  We introduced piecewise functions, what the equations look like, and how to graph them on a graphing calculator.  Tomorrow, students will get their Chapter 1 tests back, we’ll reflect on the chapter, and we’ll talk about retake policies.

HW: None tonight.  5th hour, NO HOMEWORK!  I forgot to erase it.

Announcements: Chapter 1 test MAKEUP is TODAY AFTER SCHOOL!  If you missed the test, you need to be there!

October 2, 2017

Tomorrow, we’re going to start Chapter 2, and on Wednesday we’ll go over the Chapter 1 test (after the makeup Tuesday) and continue in our pursuit of Chapter 2 learning.

With the sub today, you reviewed graphing lines and parabolas from the equations.  If you weren’t there, review it on your own!
