Because it’s the first week of school we’re not jumping into the block schedule until Wednesday.
Today the students were introduced to creating your own graphing stories activity. It was a wonderful activity for my pre-algebra students to show them how math can interpret our world in different ways—using graphs. The activity appears to be a bit of a cognitive leap for some of my standard students. Perhaps the idea is a bit too abstract.
All the classes will have a quick recap on day 3. Maybe delaying it a day will give them the necessary time to process the idea before they’ll create their own.
