This is the complete set of all 20 Pre-Calculus Board Sessions. These twenty sessions will take teacher and student through the entire year of a typical Pre-Calculus course at the high school level . . . giving problems that constantly review and blend topics, challenge,"come out " relatively nicely (No calculator is needed.) . . . AND have solutions with explanations! ( An early aside . . . Though this was NOT their original purpose, any of the twenty sessions included in this package would be perfect for a Blizzard Bag. They're already to go digitally for a net assignment, but can also be run off for the bag. . . . and you've ALREADY got the answers/solutions to the problems once the students return to school ! )
Why “board sessions”? You can only learn to dance by doing it. You can only learn to play football, or soccer by doing it. And you can only learn math by doing it. Unfortunately homework is, all too frequently, something that does not get done. These board sessions enable the student to do problems under your supervision. A major goal is to keep the student from getting bored during class. An active student is a student less likely to get bored. Either getting your students out of their seats and up to the board . . . or doing problems in their seats on white boards, increases active learning. Our board sessions will help prevent a student from “bored dumb.” (These pre-calculus sessions can also be used as homework and review for the student who needs more individual practice and a written explanation . . . or as test questions for you to use (since you can glance at the difficulty involved in our solutions.)
The review/enrichment sheets in our Pre-Calculus Board Sessions series should be quite helpful to many students and teachers. For students, the sessions cover the major topics presented in a typical Pre-Calculus course in a year . . . which happens to be fairly equivalent to what a college student would learn in one quarter of Pre-Calculus work. They range from reviewing Algebra II concepts, through developing the derivative concept. Nevertheless, HOW to do the problems is presented as opposed to just giving the answers to the Board Session problems posed. One caveat, they do NOT delve into more theoretical and involved “Calculator Allowed” work done/necessary in today’s Pre-Calculus course. For the teacher in addition to getting the students out of their seats and to a place where you can: A). note your students’ progress (or lack of it) and B). help each other through rough spots without being accused of copying/cheating on a test - the problems in the board sessions will also be quite helpful for: class openers or closers, quiz bowl practice or quiz bowl questions, math enrichment, teacher-led discussions on getting the answer efficiently, alternative test & quiz questions, and SAT – ACT - Proficiency Test prep.
