Been gone for a while but back with new stuff!!

My plan of updating this blog went awry and FAST! But now that I have a "60" day vacation I hope to get back on track as much as possible.

I going to a new school, have a new baby (5 weeks), and I get to teach new classes which I am excited about.

Tonight's topic involves use of menus in class. I am a big believer in giving my students options as long as my goal as the teacher is met. which is proof of the standards being mastered.

This assessment is on solving equations. There are three levels of equations all with different amounts for each problem. Appetizers are 1 dollar, Side Items are 2 dollars, and EntrĂ©es are 5 dollars. The students have to do one of each and spend all 40 dollars. This allows the students to pick the problems they want but also forces them to try 2-step equations as well. Hope you enjoy feel free to leave any comments or questions!
