This lesson is about rotation. Examples of open response questions with answers are included.
All problems are designed to be answered with a graphic organizer I designed called FICA (Formula, Insert, Calculate, Answer) to solve an open response question. Students are to arrange their answer similar to the quadrants of a coordinate grid.
Quadrant I Formula: What is given in the problem? What mathematical rules apply to this problem?
Quadrant II Insert: What numeric values can I insert? How do the mathematical rules apply to this problem?
Quadrant III Calculate: Students will perform the necessary operations and solve the problem.
Quadrant IV Answer: Students will restate the question and give their answer in sentence format.
