Glossary and Vocab Quizzes






The Glossary packet is given to them at the beginning of the year and is expected to be in their notebook. Once every two weeks, we take a vocab quiz that covers the entire glossary (including words they’ve not had yet). They chart their personal total in their notebooks and I chart the class total on the wall. Let’s take a vocab quiz!!!

How To Notebook
Again, at the beginning of the year, I hand out a list of items that they should be able to do by the end of the year. They are to record these “How To’s” in their notebook and refer to them when working on cumulative assignments and reviewing for tests.  See our How To’s!


Revolving Reviews


RRs are short, one page worksheets that are due every Friday over some previous topic. This really saves me review time over the early topics and it forces the kids to remember what they’ve learned. By the time April rolls around, I rarely have to remind a kid to scale a graph!

AP Free Response Questions




I hand out FR packets at the beginning of the year and constantly refer to previous questions about the current topic, including timed writings where they have 12 minutes to write a response and turn it in. During the 2nd semester, they have an AP problem due each Friday instead of a RR. Because of the AP Scale, I do modify the grades. A score of 4 earns 10 points, a 3 earns 9 points, a 2 earns 7 points, a 1 earns 5 points.

Probability Around the World
With a partner, choose a problem to work. When you get an answer, look around the hall until you find that answer on the top of another sheet. Then work the problem on the bottom of that paper. Continue until you have done all 20 problems  Calculators ready?? Let’s go into the hall!


AP Stat Murder Mystery
Who did it? Where was it done? How was it done? These are the burning questions of the day!  Posted around the room are the clues to help you solve this mystery! Eliminate suspects, locations, and weapons and be the first to solve the crime!
