There is a video of this in graphing videos that could move the discussion along.

In Google drive under Alg 1 200

Put links to relevant practice sections on class web site as year goes on?

Easy Version

Expressions

Exponents

Put them in one to one folder in education folder on my documents. Good ones for slope and exponents. also here:http://function-of-time.blogspot.com/2009/12/row-games-galore.html rational expressions onehttp://kalamitykat.com/2010/10/02/row-game-simplify-rational-expressions/

Teacher puts up a problem. Everyone works on it - students may work with anyone else in the room that they want to until everyone is done. A random student is chosen who puts their work under the document camera and explains what they did. If they are correct, the class gets a point. For every one/two/three (depends on how generous I'm feeling) points the class earns, a homework problem is removed from that night's assignment. When presenting this activity, I make it very clear that if a student has the wrong solution, it's an issue for the class, not for that student - the class wins or loses as a group. Therefore, everyone has the responsibility of making sure they check what they have with others and get help if they are confused and everyone has the responsibility of checking in with others to make sure that no one is sitting alone and confused. Kids seem to take the idea of group responsibility very seriously when we do this. Maybe it's a middle school thing, but kids are running around the class, talking with each other, arguing about whether their answer is correct or not, and reaching out to kids they see sitting by themselves. The group responsibility piece also makes kids that would rather just sit on the sidelines or be quietly confused work harder and engage more fully since they don't want to let their peers down. When I first tried this, I worried that kids would feel the pressure in a bad way, but instead, it seems to result in an increase in support and encouragement, which makes me feel all warm and fuzzy.

Old maid, pair up cards and don't get left with the spider. Any problems can be used, problem and answer form pairs
