This post is really just me planning out the rest of my school year.

I realized today that there are 13 class days left for each of my A and B days before final exams, with field trips, assemblies, and half days sprinkled in. I just finished units in all of my classes because of some sheer luck (or bad luck since I now have tests to grade in each class). Here’s what I still need to teach, along with reviewing for final exams:

Algebra I | Algebra II | College Algebra | Calculus |

(loses 1 day to an assembly)
Add/Subtract/Multiply Polynomials Factoring Solve quadratics by factoring Assessment Pythagorean Theorem/ Distance Formula Midpoint Theorem Assessment |
(half of students gone 1 day for ACT)
Law of Sines Law of Cosines Assessment Fundamental Counting Principle Probability of multiple events Conditional Probability Permutations/Combinations |
(loses 1 day to an assembly)
Intro Sequences/ Series Arithmetic Series Geometric Series Binomial Theorem Permutations/Combinations Intro to Probability (really? why?) Assessment |
(most of students gone on field trip for 2 days)
Slope Fields Euler’s Method Separable Differential Equations Assessment Integrals as Net Change Area Between Curves Volume by Cross Section Volume by Disk/ Washer/ Shell Method Assessment |

So really more like 11-12 days. My calculus class will be hurting the most, but it’s also non-AP so I don’t really have to get through it all. But I’d like to since I’ll be teaching AP next year…and I guess I don’t need to get through all of the other stuff either…this is just what the person before me had on his unit plans but he also did not have a lot of this stuff on his assessments (no factoring, solving quadratics by factoring, law of sines/cosines, permutations/combinations, binomial theorem, slope fields, calc volumes) so I don’t know if it was ever actually covered.

Now to get to planning everything. Fun Fun Fun. Luckily I have the #MTBoS to look through.

Je ne sais pas comment il n’y a que 13 jours de classe.
