Day 71: Today was another quiz day. There is sooo much grading to do at once when you choose to quiz all classes on the same day each week.
Day 72: Today in geometry, we reviewed lines in slope-intercept form using ExploreLearning's Gizmo. This is in preparation for working with the equations of parallel and perpendicular lines while reviewing for our midterm.
Day 73: Today in algebra 2, we played +Desmos 's Match my Parabola. This activity is a great way to practice using intercept/factored form in particular.Today in #GeometryChat we reviewed slope-intercept form of line with @ExploreLearning #teach180 pic.twitter.com/bdt6B9ltJF— Jennifer Abel (@abel_jennifer) December 16, 2016
Day 74: Today in geometry we reviewed using point-slope form of a line. We are reviewing for our midterm and are preparing to work with parallel and perpendicular lines.

Day 75: Today in algebra 2 we practiced using inverse variation as an introduction to rational equations. We used this color by number activity to be a little more fun than just a worksheet.

Day 76: Today was our last day of class before winter break. It was our usual quiz day (every fifth day of class).
Day 78: Today in geometry we practiced using the triangle midsegment theorem with this matching activity.
Today in #geometrychat we practiced using triangle midsegments with a matching activity #teach180 need to make this into a @Desmos card sort pic.twitter.com/SkG4JPNy27— Jennifer Abel (@abel_jennifer) January 3, 2017
Day 79: Today in algebra 2, we used Meg Craig's Exponent Practice worksheet. My kids love these because they can check their work with the solution box as they go.
Today in #alg2chat we used @mathymeg07's exponent practice. My kids love her self-checking assignments. #teach180 https://t.co/jAKTnNUfXj pic.twitter.com/dFj7OJ3W1A— Jennifer Abel (@abel_jennifer) January 4, 2017
Day 80: Today in geometry we practiced using similarity in right triangles with ExploreLearning's Gizmo. This is always a very challenging lesson for students, but the ease of manipulating the triangles within the Gizmo makes it a little easier for students to visualize and grasp.
Today in #geometrychat we practiced using similarity in right triangles with @ExploreLearning. Always a tough lesson. #teach180 pic.twitter.com/GxWRH2mlPy— Jennifer Abel (@abel_jennifer) January 5, 2017
I hope you found a resource here that you could adapt to fit your classroom. Please let me know if you try one of my activities. It's also never too late to join #teach180!
