This is the first of 6 review sheets that I use with my Algebra 1 class. The sheets are designed to help my students review for the ECA (end of course assessment).
This worksheet is also included in the Algebra ECA Bundle:
The review sheets cover the following topics:
- Solving Linear Equations and Inequalities
- Graphing and Interpreting Linear and Non-Linear Relations
- Systems of Linear Equations and Inequalities
I pass out one sheet (on Fridays) per week for six weeks.
The students work on the sheet outside of class, and I let them begin asking questions on Wednesday. Typically, I do not answer their questions, but I do point them in the right direction. For example, if a student says, "I do not understand #3," I might respond "try using the slope formula and the point-slope formula to answer this question").
We grade the sheet on Friday. I also add some of the questions to a review section on our tests.
I find that this makes an effective review of our core content. Since the students know that the questions will show up (again) on their test, they are encourage to continue reviewing the material after it is graded.
