Problem of the day
Problem of the Day

In the figure below, point Q is fixed and point P starts at 4

and moves left along the x-axis. As P moves left along the x

axis toward O, the area of POQ changes. Use the information

given to complete the table below to show how the area of

POQ changes as P goes from the position shown to

the origin O.

Essential question enduring understandings
Essential Question/Enduring Understandings

  • What math is in Unit Six?

  • What math is in part five of Unit Four?

  • How does assessment impact what students should know and be able to do?


  • What is assessment?

  • What is the difference between assessment and grading?

Thoughts on grading
Thoughts on Grading

  • The Case against the zero

  • Grading: Are grade an accurate reflection of student learning?

Thoughts on assessment
Thoughts on Assessment

  • Open Ended Items

  • Will this be on the test?


  • For Learning

    • Usually Formative

    • Usually detailed, specific, and descriptive feedback

    • Checks learning to determine what to do next

    • Designed to assist student and teacher

  • Of Learning

    • Usually Summative

    • Usually compares student learning to other students

    • Checks what has been learned to date

    • Doesn’t need to involve student

Both are important!!! We must have a balance!

Assessment for learning
Assessment for Learning

  • Students are involved so a shared language and understanding is developed.

  • Students receive specific, descriptive feedback about the learning, during the learning.

    3. Students collect, organize, and communicate evidence of their learning to others.

4. Teachers adjust instruction in response to ongoing assessment information received from students and selves.

5. A safe learning environment invites further risk taking, mistake making, goal setting, and support for learning.

Unit 6 coordinate geometry
Unit 6 – Coordinate Geometry

  • Pre Requisites:

    • Plotting points in all quadrants

    • Scatter plots

    • Lines and systems of lines, including finding equations of lines, finding slopes of lines, and finding the slope of a line perpendicular to a given line.

    • Pythagorean Theorem

Overview of unit 6
Overview of Unit 6

  • This unit investigates the properties of geometric figures on the coordinate plane. Students develop and use the formulas for the distance between two points, the distance between a point and a line, and the midpoint of segments. Focusing students’ attention on a coordinate grid as a reference for locations and descriptions of geometric figures strengthens their recognitions of algebraic and geometric connections.

Essential question enduring understandings1
Essential Question/Enduring Understandings

  • Algebraic formulas can be used to find measures of distance on the coordinate plane.

  • The coordinate plane allows precise communication about graphical representations.

  • The coordinate plane permits use of algebraic methods to obtain geometric results.
