Working For The Weekend
Actually, I'm working on the weekend, and that's something I don't usually do. With new textbooks and new standards for each of the classes I teach, this is the only way I'm going to be able to keep up with my lesson planning.
I just finished a pre-calculus quiz. My goal this year is to have all of my quizzes in digital format, so I can quickly alter them if necessary before printing. Presentation is important, and hand-written quizzes with cut-paste graphs on them aren't as impressive (or as indicative of their importance) as a printed quiz with an embedded graph.
Sure, I'm not going full-hi-tech. I went to an online graphing calculator and took a screen shot of a couple graphs and/or coordinate axes, cropped them, and put them into the MS Word document that eventually became my quiz. I'm pleased with the way it turned out. It looks, for lack of a better term, professional.
