I posted last night about using Formative for graphing practice using the show your work tool. I just wanted to share what we created fro some of our remediation students. It is only three questions that we used as a warm up to determine who needed additional help and who could move on. I thought it might be useful to some. Let me know if you have any other ideas to share when it comes to graphing and interactivity.

Hi,

Looks very nice! I have one suggestion: I would consider adding the questions on top if the whiteboards or include them as pictures, this would alleviate the short term memory problems some kids might have.

Best regards,

Great idea! I did not even think of that. I will be sure to do that next time.

Great array of different slopes and intercepts. The ability for students to annotate and draw on graphs is so cool!

I do have a suggestion though. What about adding some thinking questions at the top/middle or bottom of the formative? Questions such asâ€¦ â€śHow many x and y-intercepts do the graphs above have? Why is this true?â€ť â€śWhat makes the graph go up the right vs. up to the left?â€ť â€śHow does the slope-intercept form of a graph allow us to graph a linear equation easily?â€ť

Answering with words allows students to process a little more deeply than just â€śdoing the math requiredâ€ť. They become owners of the knowledge vs. machines that can just do the work. (well, that is at least what I say to my students )
