During the summer before my students begin my IB Math SL (formerly "math methods") course, I have them complete a sequence of six summer worksheets. When the semester begins, I tell them that on the third day class, they will have a summative assessment, which gives them a day or two to come in and ask questions about anything they didn't understand. I find this approach works well for setting the tone for my class.
This quiz has two versions, and they cover a sampling of the types of questions on my series of six summer worksheets.
This quiz is intended to be written on directly.
Please download the pdf preview file first, so you can see exactly what's included; the product file is a word document, which you may personalize for your students.
For instance, you may want to change my name, “Mr. Jonnard,” to that of a teacher more familiar to your students.
