REFLECTION #1: Math--Unit 8 Math Test (with Open Response)

What did you learn from this assignment?

In unit 8 I learned how to add, subtract, multiply, and divide fractions and mixed numbers. I also had to apply the skill of renaming and reducing fractions. Part A was summative because we have learned this and had opportunities to show our learning before the test. Part B is formative because we are still learning these skills.

The open response problem required me to think critically and explain my thinking. The problem asked me to apply the skills in a multi-step problem. I also had to solve the problem in more than one way. The main focus of the open response is explaining and showing my work.

What are you proud of on this assignment?

I am proud of my open response that I got it correct because I thought I wouldn’t be able to do it. I was able to explain it too.

Reflecting back on your work, what could you improve?

I would explain things better. I would pay more attention on the word problems and on the number problems sometimes too.

My goal for the remainder of the year is to ...

Pay more attention on the word problems by reading them more than 2 times (i already read it 2 times).
