Learning from yesterday's test, I'll have students start by writing down the acrostic on this sheet:
guide. I've decided to include a quick review of using variables as well. So since the focus is use of variables and good strategy, I've chosen to keep the content somewhat simpler.
We'll review the acronym, write the acrostic, complete some problems together, and then I'll let students work with friends or alone to complete the rest of the problems. At the end there are a number of equations that students may use to write their own problems. They always enjoy that part of the process.
I think this will be a good review for students, one that will likely take one or two lessons. Let's see.
