What difference do we notice between the volume of cylinder formula and volume of cone formula?
Can we prove that three cones can fit into one cylinder?
Why is it important to know what the shape is of my base when finding the volume of a shape?
Is it important to understand that difference between "b" and "B" in formulas when solving for volume, area or surface area of a shape?
What does "volume" mean? So, what do I mean when I want to find the "volume" of something?
To find the volume of a cylinder, I'm given the formula V=Bh. What does the "B" mean?
assessments are a wide variety of in-process evaluations of student comprehension, learning needs, and academic progress during a lesson, unit or course. Formative assessments during instruction also allows room to adjust instruction, if needed.
Butcher Paper Activity
: Provide a table-sized piece of butcher paper for each group, and give each student an individual question to solve on the butcher paper. Teacher circulates while students are working the problem. This allows teachers to see what students know without assistance from their table partner being that they'll have each have different problems.
: Teacher will ask students a question and they'll solve and/or write their thoughts or work/solution to a problem on a whiteboard. While students are completing the question, the teacher will circulate the room to check for understanding.
assessments are given periodically throughout a school year to establish baseline achievement data and measure progress toward a standard or set of academic standards and goals.
: An online interim assessment that aligns with TEKS and includes former STAAR questions. This assessment is used mid-year as a tool/data to see students' mastery levels and/or weaknesses in content areas.
: Texas standardized test given to assess students' knowledge with certain requirements to advance to the next grade level for certain grades.
assessments are to evaluate student learning at the end of an instructional unit by comparing it against some standard or benchmark.
: A long-term compilation of tasks, research, assignments to achieve a particular aim/goal.
: Exams given to assess student knowledge over a period of time or at the end of a semester/school year.
assessments are known as alternative or authentic assessments, which is a form of testing that requires students to perform a task rather than select an answer from a ready-made list.
Design and/or Building a Model/Invention
: Requires creativity, innovation, research, expense sheets, mathematics and science concepts, communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and a presentation/portfolio for possible viewers.
: Where students can express their thoughts, research, knowledge, skills or information through a presentation.
assessment is a form of pre-assessment that allows a teacher to determine students' individual strengths, weaknesses, knowledge, and skills prior to instruction.
: A method of gathering information from students' to see their foundational knowledge of a certain area of content
: A graphic organizer that helps students organize information before, during and after a unit or lesson, by asking what they "know," "want to know," and "learned."
