Warm-Up Right!

Morning warm-up in Mrs. Jordan's room has gone high tech with the use of TurningPoint NXT responsecards. The students start their morning completing a math warm-up on paper which allows them to show their work and use their testing strategies. When they have finished their work they use the responsecards to input their answers at their own pace. Mrs. Jordan is able to see their answers choices as she monitors their results on her computer. After the students submit their answers on the responsecard, they are given their score. If they missed any questions they know they have to see Mrs. Jordan immediately to get assistance with the questions they missed. The students say that it is fun to input their answers and they like being able to see their scores on the spot. Mrs. Jordan likes that she is able to see and address the students that need assistance immediately.
