With your mouse, drag data points and their error bars, and watch the best-fit polynomial curve update instantly. You choose the type of fit: linear, quadratic, cubic, or quartic. The reduced chi-square statistic shows you when the fit is good. Or you can try to find the best fit by manually adjusting fit parameters.

Leah Alcala gives her students a warm-up problem at the beginning of every class, which they solve on index cards. She quickly sorts through them, and from the wrong answers chooses her "favorite no." She and her kids then analyze what's right about the solution before delving in to what the writer doesn't understand that led them to answer incorrectly.

Math teacher Jennifer Giudice takes a unique approach to preparing her students for their upcoming assessment. She assigns her students a homework assignment that requires them to develop 2 possible assessment questions. She uses these questions to both determine where different students are at in their understanding of quadratics and also to select questions that help her best assess their level of understanding.Ms. Giudice shares a few of the questions the following day and asks students to consider what they need to do to prepare for each of the questions.
