Today was freshman only at my school, which means I had almost all my students. The day was used to give the freshman a feel for high school without all the upperclassmen. Each period was 20 minutes and I used the time to introduce students to estimation 180 and find out a little about them.
Almost every student was on board for the estimation portion. I was really happy with the low entry point this set for students and message; math shouldn’t be intimidating. Great first day!
