Think Through Math

We spent our math class working with the online math tutorial program Think Through Math.  My classes had used the program last year, so I spent a few minutes reminding the class about their dashboard

We looked at a lesson and discussed the importance of the Pretest.  I also pointed out the tools that they have available (formulas and vocabulary).  Finally, I made sure they realized that they can have the text read aloud.

The remaining time was given to taking the Placement Test.  I also allowed them the last five minutes of class to design their avatar.  I have to allow this "avatar time" or I will have students doing this during the time I need them working on the lessons and earning certificates.

Next week, I will have each class choose the classroom goal and start working towards some motivators!
