End of the semester – quarterly assessments are over, but there’s one topic to teach them left, even though it won’t get onto this semester’s grades.
I thought I’d give dan’s advice a try: build the worksheet first. This is what I came up with. It’s a short day – I think after a warmup on exponents, I can turn them loose on this with a minimum of direction.
I think it’ll do well on the discovery aspect. It could probably use some more reinforcement of the concept, though, even though it’s just an intro.
We’ll see how it goes in practice.
