MPM1D1 - Day 87 Last Day of Classes

Today was the last day of the semester. We started the period by going over a couple of questions that much of the class struggled with then they were able to work independently or in small groups to go over what they thought they should study.

A number of students had clearly used the last couple of days off effectively and had some very specific questions to ask. A number of students had a hard time focusing and didn't use the period effectively. I think coming back after an unexpected two day holiday was part of the problem, but perhaps I need think about making some of the review time more structured.

I gave students their marks going into the exam and they had lots of questions about the logistics of the next week or so, this being their first time through the exam process.

I'm looking forward to seeing how the class does on the exam.

  1. Thank you very much for sharing your journey. I will be spiraling grade 9.academic course for the first time and am very grateful for your experience. Curious - have or would you do it again this way? Would love to ask you more questions. How did your students do overall, exam, EQAO and do you know how they are doing in subsequent math courses this year.
