Application Problems are a great way to begin each of your Module lessons. Application Problems generally review previously taught concepts, build upon prior lesson concepts, or challenge students to explore what they may already know about a concept being introduced throughout that particular lesson.
I've found that the best way to utilize this product is to project the Application Problem at the beginning of each lesson onto the board. Students complete their work on a separate sheet of paper, in their math notebook, on an index card, or in their Module 2 Journals. However, this file can also be printed and copied for individual student use.
Topic A & B Journals provide students with the objective of each lesson, given space to complete the lesson's Application Problem, as well as work through the Concept Development problems for each lesson. I also like to include a copy of the Problem Set for each lesson within the journal. (Problem Sets are available for download on engageny.org)
I've found that the most efficient and effective way to help keep my students on task and organized is to provide each student with a copy of this journal. My students are less likely to lose any of their Module materials when it is in a journal format. Students are also encouraged to keep their journals for each topic throughout the entire Module to reference when completing homework and/or preparing for a Topic Quiz or Module Assessment.
Exit Tickets are a great way for teachers to quickly assess the students' understanding of the concept presented in each lesson.
I've found that the best way to utilize this product is to project the Exit Ticket at the end of each lesson onto the board. Students complete their work on a separate sheet of paper or index card to be handed in. However, this file can also be printed and copied for individual student use.
Application Problems, Student Journals, and Exit Tickets were created to be both teacher and student-friendly!
