This is a non-AP class, so we're moving at a pretty slow pace. And, I'm totally okay with that. A portion of my class is only present 3 days a week due to a college class they are taking on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. Getting them caught up has probably slowed down the pace of the class, but nobody has complained. :) My favorite thing about this class is that there is no end-of-instruction exam. We can explore tangents that come up in class. We can do as many hands-on projects as I want to because there is no test looming in front of us.
For quantitative and categorical variables, I made a card sort for students to complete in their notebooks. It took quite a bit longer for my students to complete than I anticipated. My students really struggled with the airplane related questions because the majority of them have never flown. I guess I shouldn't be surprised. I got on a plane for the first time in March to speak at SXSWedu. Then, I took the longest commercial flight in the world this summer to go from Dallas to Sydney. Airports and I are becoming fast friends.
Students first cut out the definitions and glued them in.
