In this presentation I will discuss how I implimented SBG in my own classroom as a tool to evaluate student understanding of fundamental skills, as a way to flex the variable of time in student learning, and as a way to expose my data-driven teaching decisions to my students. I will also have visuals of what it looks like in my classroom and how my participation in PCMI last year changed my system for the better this past school year.   DIGITS! Peter Sell I use a game I call DIGITS. It's like mastermind. Students make guesses and get feedback in terms of how many digits are correct and how many are in the right place. Students use the results and deduce the correct number. I would need to make copies of a handout for participants and I would need a smart board, whiteboard, or chalkboard.         The Googled Classroom   I will show how I use google docs, forms, spreadsheets, and surveys in my classroom in a variety of ways such as:    mathematical journalling    differentiation    exit slips    diagnostics    collaboration    seating    and more!   The Laws of Sines and Cosines: Exeter's Approach Philip Mallinson I will show a brief sequence of problems that illustrate Exeter's approach to the laws of sines and cosines.           Two-Dice Toss Monica Tienda This dice activity helps students: (a) gain experiential knowledge of the results of tossing two dice. (b) encourages students to develop a growing understanding of probability. (c) makes data collection fun AND meets middle school CCSM standards. (d) all of the above.
