### Subject: Professional Development

How can you measure a student's or even an employees understanding after a lesson or training?

A great way to measure a student's or even an employees understanding after a lesson or training is a scaffolded Exit Ticket. You create a set of 3-4 questions at different levels to see where each person in the group mastered the information and where the gaps are. For example, your first question might be a question that EVERY person could access even your lowest student, the next question would be a little bit harder, and the final question would be designed to see if students could apply the new learning to a different kind of problem or carefully explaining the process to apply the new learning.

### Subject: Pre-Algebra

How can I use visuals to show what a numerical expression could look like visually?

I could use blocks to display the equation 2(4x + 3) **** 3 **** 3 This is showing 2 groups of 4 somethings plus the number 3

### Subject: Basic Math

What is a way other than repeated addition to teach the concept of multiplication?

Multiplication can be seen as "groups of." If I have the problem 3 x 5, I can substitute the words "groups of" for that multiplication sign, and see it as "3 groups of 5."
