Q4: Week 1  – 4/25 – 4/29

                                                                                                                                                                                       Jump toTuesday,   Wednesday,  Thursday,  Friday                                                                                                          ______________________________________________________________

4/25 – Monday – B Day – 2, 3b/4 Lab

Main focus –                                                                                                                                                         
                                                  

    a) To Continue with Part 2 of the Practice test 3.

 

Period 2, 3/4: 

1. Lets see how much we have been reviewing as a class:

PRACTICE TEST 7 – Part one – Multiple Choice – (Completed before the Spring Break in Class).

Let’s see:       In this Part 1, the class averaged 23 questions correct :  50 – 23 =  27 incorrect answers.

27 incorrect answers  x  23 students taking the practice test 7 part one =  621 total incorrect answers for ALL students.

11.5 hours watched / 621 incorrect answers0.0185 hours per question if reviewed if EVERYONE reviewed their work!!

           0.0185 x 60 minutes = 1.1 minutes per question reviewed = NOT getting it done!!!

PRACTICE TEST 5 – Part one – Multiple Choice – (Assigned during Spring Break in Class).

This Test you had all week plus a day to complete.  ONLY 9 out of 23 students completed the test

30.56 correct: 50 – 30.56 = 19.44 incorrect =  19.44 x 9 = 175 question incorrect

3.1 hours watched / 175 questions incorrect0.0177 hours per question reviewed 

60 minute x 0.0177 = 1.06 minute per question reviewed = NOT GETTING IT DONE!!

 

PRACTICE TEST 5 – Part 2 – FRQ – (Assigned during Spring Break in Class).

This of course was even worse!!!

2. Practice test 3 continues from the Thursday before the break:
  10 points = question 1
  10 points = question 2
  10 points = question 3
    4 points = question 4
    4 points = question 5
    4 points = question 6
    4 points = question 7
    46 points Total                                                                                                                                                                                                          
90 minutes / 46 points  = 1.95 minutes per part 2 question thus
10 point question ≈ 20 minutes 
  4 point question ≈   8 minutes

4/25 – Monday Homework: –                                                                                                                                                                  

1.   Complete the FRQ that I give out today. It is due tomorrow in class, no exceptions.

It will count as a test towards the 3rd quarter

If anyone plagiarizes, then a zero will go into power school. 

Unfortunately I have to be punitive at this point to get as many people completing and reviewing questions because many are not doing so on their own.
