Day 1

Just finished a great first day of Geometry.  I used the exercise “Walking in the Rain” with a math talk in the beginning.  After teaching only Algebra for the past number of years, I did not realize the strength of students that made it to Geometry.  The major change I would make to the lesson is to add more to the lesson.  The lesson was decent for a 45 minute period for regular students, but well short for honors.  Students really enjoyed working together and the task naturally fosters explanation.
