#Teach180: Days 161-170

This year I've taken on the #teach180 challenge.  The challenge is to post one tweet per day showing a glimpse inside your classroom.  I'm also putting the tweets together in a biweekly blog so that I can share the resources that I'm tweeting about.

Day 161:  Today we had our weekly cumulative quiz.  Only 3 more weeks worth of these :)

Day 162:  Today in geometry, we practiced constructing parallel and perpendicular lines  using ExploreLearning's Gizmo.

Day 163:  Today in algebra 2 we used the mini whiteboards to practice finding the sum of infinite geometric series.

Day 164:  Today in geometry we continued mixing final exam review by using Khan Academy.  We used this activity:  Decompose Figures to Find Volume.

Day 165:  Today in algebra 2 we used EDpuzzle to learn about making truth tables for compound statements.  It was also the first of 6 days of state testing.  We have two days each for literature, biology, and algebra 1.
Day 166:  Today we had another one of our weekly quizzes.
Day 167:  Today in geometry we reviewed reflections using an ExploreLearning Gizmo.  As an extra treat, we had an ice cream social to celebrate the halfway point of state testing.  I hope it rejuvenates kids enough to finish strong.
Day 168:  Today in algebra 2 we practiced making truth tables for compound statements using this worksheet.  In addition to being day 4 of 6 for state testing, we also had our field day today.  It is a spirited day of 'competition' between graduating classes.  I use competition loosely because we have activities for everyone including athletics, carnival type games, coloring, rubiks cube, etc.

Day 169:  Today in geometry we reviewed dilations with this ExploreLearning Gizmo.  We also continued with state testing.  It is our second to last day.

Day 170:  Today in algebra 2 we used EDpuzzle to learn about making truth tables for conditional statements.  It was also our last day of state testing :)  Finally!


That's it for this round of #teach180.  It's never too late to join in the fun!
