Thanks!

Last summer I wrote to thank you for your work . A yr. later I continue to be a fan & thank for helping me become a better teacher. Your work helps inspire my students and makes me look good. Thx for all you do.

While in Vegas met Lisa Johnson & made certain to tell her I’m a fan of mathycathy. Thx again.

So kind of you to follow up! Thank YOU for making a difference!

Cathy, have you heard whether there has been any progress on correlating Desmos activities with TEKS?

I haven’t heard anything on the TEKS/Desmos front yet! ðŸ™‚

What does your district do with technology to have students only use the desmos testing app on STAAR? (For test security). I would love for my district to use it but need data/info!!

Cathy,

Which version of Algebra I EOC – paper or online – did your students take?

Greetings!

Our students have exclusively taken the paper Algebra 1 EOC thus far.

Best,

Cathy

Hi Cathy,

I just reviewed your nearpod covering (Florida) MAFS.912.A-SSE.1.1.a

Interpret parts of an expression, such as terms, factors, and coefficients.

Thanks!

Pet House Linear Project-how many days did you give your students for this?

BTW, thanks for all your work and insight.

Hi Scott!

Thanks for your question and kind comment! Generally, I’ve given students 5 days for this project. In past school years, the 5 days included 5 math class periods so students could collaborate, and I could showcase their progress by projecting my teacher dashboard. During COVID, I assigned the project on a Thursday, and it was due by the end of class the following Monday – still 5 days overall, but a little less opportunity to collaborate in-person because of social distancing, some students on Zoom and some in-person, etc. I hope that helps!
