Day 15: Takin’ Our Time

One of the things I struggle with is how to give  students enough time to be thoughtful while they complete activities but simultaneously not waste time on idle chatter or off-task behavior.  In comes “Online Stopwatch,” a free service with a big display.


Today, my precalculus “mathletes” had a check-in on the last two sections.  Usually I give about 10 minutes to complete 3 homework questions.  Since there is no clock in the front of the room, this time I introduced “the clock” to help them realize they can complete the skill-based formative assessment in the allotted time…in fact, they were all able to finish in less than the required time.
