I offer my outline for Day 1 and would be delighted with feedback!
Day 1 ... Introduction
Day 1.1 Opening Activity: Vocabulary Round UP ... what do you remember from your first year algebra course about quadratics? Students brainstorm a list ... the beginnings of our word wall
- Exeter Math Exploration: Stacking Starbursts
- NSA Unit: Kangaroo Conundrum (Day 1 only)
On Day 2 we are headed to Mathalicious and the Fall of Javert as we continue to explore the characteristics of quadratics.
The on Day 3 we will review multiple representations and transformations (this is an ongoing theme throughout our year ... students are already very familiar with a, h, and k!) I have a set of cards ... each student gets a card, four cards make a set ... so students create foursomes. I still need to flesh out this day ...
Last on Day 4 we will graph inequalities ... not sure yet what this day will look like at all. It may be a Desmos exploration day!
