• From February 1st through April 12th, I engaged the students in four activities based on the results I discovered from their pretests. The first activity the students participated in involved the students measuring the diameter and circumference of multiple objects and relating the circumference, diameter, and pi to each other. As the semester moved on, my mentor teacher asked me to relate my activities to the material being covered in the classroom at the same time, and the second activity I had the students take part in required them to complete a worksheet involving finding the volume of various triangular prisms. A few weeks after Spring Break, I was able to have the students take part in the third activity, which involved the students playing a probability game called “Leprechaun Luck,” and a week later, I had the students complete their final activity which was a probability worksheet to reinforce their knowledge of the probability of an

Based on the post-test, I feel that the two activities that made the most impact were “Leprechaun Luck” and the probability worksheet. The students enjoyed these two activities and retained the material on the post-test. With “Leprechaun Luck,” the activity allowed students to use their competitive natures to help them learn the concepts and determine the probability of certain occurrences to win the game. The students were able to use their knowledge of the probability of certain occurrences happening on the post-test because they learned this in the form of a competitive and hands-on game. The following week, I gave the students a worksheet that required their knowledge of the concept of probability to complete the activity. This activity built upon their prior knowledge of probability and on the concept that was explained during “Leprechaun

## Pt1420 Unit 8 Assignment

716 Words | 3 PagesTo complete this assignment, I first went online to search for fifth-grade fraction activities, with a focus on multiplication. After reviewing numerous potential activities I eventually landed on Fraction Flip-It, which is a game that allows students to create their own fractions depending on where they place the cards drawn. This was a large draw because the game could be played any number of times without students solving the same equation over and over. Once I had settled on the activity and how it would be set up, I began building a lesson around it. I wanted to make sure students had the necessary knowledge to succeed, which is why I included the pre-assessment Plicker quiz.

## Luck Is Not Chance Analysis

124 Words | 1 PagesWhen we ask the question, “How much of our own fate do we actually control?” , all participants have answered differently based on their own personal beliefs. With all these possible answers ranging from zero percent to one-hundred percent of our own fate we actually control what is the real answer? In Luck is not Chance by Emily Dickson, she clearly says it is by hard work, while in the Sports Gene by David Epstein he says it is not always hard work, by using an example of a genetic ability to high jump with little experience. Even though the Sport Gene is a good example of having natural talent, I still think it is based on how hard you work rather than genetic luck.

## Essay Comparing The Rocking Horse Winner And The Lottery

1109 Words | 5 PagesIn life we will be faced with things that are wrong but continue to go on whether out of tradition or just plain cowardness of anyone willing to speak up and make a change. We may also face hardships within our lives in one way or another that present us with a challenge, the question is will we be willing to try and make things better or will we be willing to stand by and make no change for the better. If not for those in the past willing to stand up and make a change to confront things that are wrong in the world it would be a totally different place than it is today. “The lottery” by Shirley Jackson and “The Rocking Horse Winner” by D.H Lawrence show luck is not always devoid of tragedy and those who are lucky are not always winners. The actions in both these stories taken by the main cast of characters both end in tragic ironies each differing in tone.

## Usma Cadet Reflection

498 Words | 2 PagesIt was my negligence as a teacher to not assess my students and determine ways to best teach them. While I had expected the children to practice diligently to understand the material, they did not demonstrate an eagerness to learn. However, I had not recognized that those children just had other priorities in mind like having fun as should be expected in young children. As a result, I decided to make teaching an interactive experience by playing educational games or providing prizes as an incentive for participation. Because of this, the children demonstrated greater willingness to partake in the lesson and expressed joy and satisfaction in their learning experience.
