Thank you for sharing this. I used it in my one semester calculus class as a summative assessment. It worked out great for my students.

This was a great tool for my kiddos who were struggling. We used a highlighter to count over from the directrix to the next point and then create it's reflection. The visual was great.

Worked very well for my Precalc class, in which we just started talking about Riemann sums and definite integrals.

Amy, I missed this comment in November... it's great to meet another calculus teacher... and thanks for the catch on the negative sign on #9. Look forward to collaborating in the future :D

Buyer

I'm always on the lookout for additional assessment questions for my calculus class. I love how this test included the solutions as well.

Lisa Jones (TpT Seller)

Great! I wish I had time to include solutions on everything. One of these days... :D

Lisa Jones (TpT Seller)

Layla, I definitely thought that I responded to you months ago. Sorry for the delay and thank you for the feedback!

Lisa Jones (TpT Seller)

Great!! Glad that I could help! I try to write all of my stuff in larger prints so that teachers w/ smartboards or something like them can easily take a screen shot an upload pages or parts of pages for instruction. Even though they look like "worksheets" I usually do a problem, or part of a problem, them ask students to do the next one or two, and have the answers prepared on the file so students can check their work immediately after they've completed it. Checking their level of understanding throughout the lesson.

Scipi (TpT Seller)

Hooray! Another math teacher. I currently teach remedial math to college students at a community college. I'm so glad to find quality products I can use!

June 13, 2012

Lisa Jones (TpT Seller)

Thanks so much! It's going to take me a while to think of my work as a "product" - have never even imagined what it might be "worth" in terms of money or selling it before. I'm definitely with you though, I'm always looking for items that I can use in the classroom. I've bought so many booklets and things over the years at conferences because I found one or two things that I would use. TpT is a refreshing alternative!!

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:

Lisa Jones (TpT Seller)

Yes, I copied it quickly and goofed. It's definitely supposed to be negative. Sorry about that!

Amy Ballou (TpT Seller) re: Calculus Derivatives Test

Is there any way to edit this file (ever so slightly)??

Lisa Jones (TpT Seller)

I don't think so when it's in pdf - but I'm not absolutely sure.

I'm sorry that it didn't meet your needs.

Scipi (TpT Seller) re: Form A Graphing, Continuity, and Limits with Rational Functions

I saw your store on the home page of Teachers Pay Teachers; so, I thought I would look at your freebie. I left you a rating. Well done! And thanks so much for remembering to make an answer key. Since you are new to the TPT world, here are a few suggestions that might help you to better market your products.

Create a cover page for each of your products which can then be used as an attractive thumbnail to entice buyers. You might also add a second page which is a directions or suggestions page for the teacher. (How do use this? When? Etc.) List several ways you use this product in your classroom. Never assume that a buyer knows how, why, or when to use your product.

Use the footer to put the copyright symbol, your name and date of creation on EVERY page. Items, especially free ones, have been "stolen" from TPT and posted on other sites to be sold. You have to protect all of your creations. Also number your pages. Finally, unless you want your products revised (I do for my tests) save everything in a PDF format as it is harder to change.

I think it is important that we see what others are doing; so, feel free to look at any or all of my freebies listed below for ideas.

Wow!! Thanks so much for all of the helpful information! I really appreciate your welcoming response to my work and look forward to following you as well. Any constructive criticisms would also be greatly appreciated. I do truly believe the great teachers are always learning. I don't consider myself great because I'm always finding more to learn. My beloved high school math teacher and mentor used to always say that she would continue to teach as long as she was learning. So true!

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've been teaching mathematics for 20+ years. I currently teach Algebra 2 and Calculus, but I have taught Algebra I, Geometry, Math Analysis and Trigonometry (PreCalc) throughout my career.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I try to incorporate practices supported by cognitive science, specifically cognitive load theory. Most of my activities are designed to promote student engagement during guided instruction. I believe that guided instruction is often misunderstood and characterized as purely lecture. Actively engaging students in concept attainment throughout each lesson is my goal. An article of personal interest is Why Minimal Guidance During Instruction Does Not Work: An Analysis of the Failure of Constructivist, Discovery, Problem-Based, Experiential, and Inquiry-Based Teaching. Evidence in support of guided instruction is explained in the context of human cognitive architecture, expertâ€“novice differences, and cognitive load.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

B.S. Classical Applied Mathematics, 7-12 Certification in Mathematics, MEd w/ 30 additional hours, Adjunct Certification in Mathematics.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I have two children and one grandchild. Prior to teaching, I worked as a research assistant on a project designed to familiarize high school mathematics teachers with applications of mathematics. I worked briefly as a mathematics instruction specialist until I decided to go back to the classroom. I enjoyed working with teachers emensely but really missed working with students on a daily basis. I've participated in a wide variety of PD throughout my career, but I cannot say enough in support of the Professional Learning Community (PLC) model. Our district's PLCs engage in content rich lesson development throughout the year. I love working with colleagues to develop lessons and identify best practices.
