We took Test #11: Exponents in class today.
3rd PeriodAverage score: 72%. The Good: Students correctly answered 70% of questions about product/power/quotient rules of exponents, 72% of questions about zero/negative exponents, and 79% of questions translating numbers between standard and scientific notation. We will not be reviewing these skills in class.The Bad: Students correctly answered 63% of questions simplifying exponential expressions, 65% of questions on dividing with scientific notation, and 67% of questions on multiplying with scientific notation. We will be reviewing this material in the next unit. Check out the Unit 11 page for more details.The Ugly: None! All skills had an average of 60% or higher.4th PeriodAverage score: 63%. The Good: Students correctly answered 81% of questions translating between standard and scientific notation, 75% of questions about multiplying with scientific notation, and 70% of questions about dividing with scientific notation.The Bad: Students corrected answered 67% of questions about product/power/quotient rules of exponents and 64% of questions about zero and negative exponents. We will be reviewing this material in the next unit. Check out the Unit 11 page for more details.The Ugly: Students correctly answered 57% of questions about simplifying exponential expressions. We will be reviewing this material in the next unit. Check out the Unit 11 page for more details.## Tuesday, April 23, 2013
To prepare for Wednesday's test, we played Jeopardy in class today. Congrats to the winners!
Period 3: Chase, Ryan, Cody, and Jonny Period 4: Daniel, Bronwyn, Glenn, Austin, and Haley ## Monday, April 22, 2013
Today we worked on the practice test for Wednesday's exam on unit 10. The test has 30 questions (12 multiple choice, 18 open response). There will be 5 questions per skill (product/power/quotient rules of exponents, zero/negative exponents, simplify exponential expressions, write numbers in scientific and standard notation, multiply with scientific notation, divide with scientific notation).
