Today was rushed; we had an early release so periods were only 35 minutes + homecoming week = crazy.

In Algebra students had a work day and practiced either two-step or multi-step equations. If you haven’t see how we do homework/practice check it out here.

Geometry worked through Dan’s 3 act Super Stairs. This summer I attended one of Dan’s workshops and he walked the group through this problem.The group seemed to really enjoy it. Here is a quick recap:

**Play the video, teacher ask students to write down the first question that comes to their mind.**
**As students share out, teacher ask who else finds a question interesting.**
**After a while students will ask “How many steps does he take” and “How long will it take him”**
**Teacher asks students to write down guesses**
**Share and record those guesses**
**Teacher asks what info is important; compile a list.**
**Give students info**
**Students work on solving the questions**
**Share solutions, whoever guessed the closest gets one clap**
**Address unanswered questions**

Whenever I do 3-Act math I always forget to go back and address the list of questions we came up with. Today I didn’t do that and it felt much more rounded.

What I did forget to do though was have students title the lesson….
