We began with the Scientific Notation Assessment (key, pdf).

Today's lesson (pdf) explored more applications of exponential growth.You might talk with your parents about PERA/Social Security/Medicare, budgets, and exponential growth. You might also ask them the moon question and see what their guess is.

Your homework for next Wednesday is:
  1. Check the portal for the results of your assessment, fill out your student checklist with your results, and make a plan for retake (if necessary), including making an appointment.

  2. Make sure your notebook is organized including your notes from class each day (openers, lessons), the notes you take when you watch the videos, the worked out on.line pre-assessment problems, and the assessments that have been handed back. You should also be filling out your skills checklist with the scores you receive on those assessments to track your progress.

  3. Here's another Power of 10 video you might like called Cosmic Voyage

  4. And yet another, the opening scene from the movie Contact
