This week we will start our EOC review stations. There will be three stations this week that students will rotate through. On Thursday, we will check and grade the station work and take a 10-12 question Review Test.
Station topics this week include: exponent properties, quadratic properties, and exponential functions.
Thursday: Grade and Test
This week is a busy week of testing for the class. Freshmen Algebra 1 students will have two big tests: the English 1 EOC on Tuesday, and the Algebra 1 mock EOC Benchmark on Friday. The Algebra 1 Benchmark is modeled to match the conditions of the actual EOC, such as classroom assignments, length of test, time limit, etc. The purpose of the Benchmark is to gather data and let students get some practice in actual conditions. I use this data to plan the review lessons prior to the actual EOC exam in May. All I ask from my students is for them to do their best. I stress this to my students (and parents), as there are often negative feelings associated with Benchmarks.
