Day 44: Slip and Slide

Song of the Day: Livin’ on a Prayer sung by Bon Jovi

Thanks to the video game, Guitar Hero, all my students know this song.

Algebra 2: We are factoring quadratics in Algebra 2. I like to teach something called slip-n-slide for quadratics with a not equal to 1. Other teachers prefer to use the guess and check method. I’ve been teaching for many years and have taught factoring with several different methods. I hope the kids remember to factor out the GCF. Most of these methods fail if that is not done first.

This profession of ours is pretty grueling at times. I depend on so many of my twitter pals to keep my refreshed and challenged. Thank you for helping me get better. “We’ve got each other and that’s a lot”.
