Final exams

Final exams are coming up next week, but students don’t seem to feel any urgency. My students will not be ready for the district’s periodic assessment. Oh well… Now I’m really wishing I could get back those three or four weeks lost at the beginning of the school year.

Overheard from a student today: “Oh! Now I finally understand what slope is. I didn’t get it last year but now I get it.”  That made my day.
