Look for fully developed K-14 math investigations, math challenges, and standardized test practice both for SATs and Common Core assessments. The emphasis will always be on maintaining a balance between skills proficiency and developing conceptual understanding in mathematics. There will also be dialogue on key issues in mathematics education. Use Blogger Contact Form at right for personal communication. See top sidebar to subscribe to solutions of Daily Twitter Problems.

I found it interesting that the first student did not realize that he had the equation of the parabola in part (1) itself, rather than re-doing it in part 2. Maybe he did realize it after the fact. However, it is difficult for me to put myself in the students' shoes. With math, most things are easy once you know them.
It looks like that the second student reached for the calculator too soon. Is this generally the case even with your better and more motivated students?
