13 Today we had our second graphing assessment in the conceptual classes. It was supposed to be yesterday, but it made more sense to do the lab yesterday, so I asked the kids and they said having the assessment on Friday would be OK with them. Each subject area has days we are supposed to use for tests, and science gets Tuesdays and Thursdays. This was a quiz-length assessment, which can be scheduled any day.
Since these are conceptual-level kids, I gave them the formula for slope and y=mx + b on the front board. I will probably do that for as long as they need it. After all, that is something they could easily look up if they needed to know it “in the real world.”
