TimestampEmail AddressWhat period do you have math with me?How did it go?If you don't mind, I'd appreciate hearing what you liked or did not like about using the cards to call on people in class.I try to make my class a place students feel safe. Did you feel comfortable contributing to the classroom conversation? (Did you feel okay speaking out loud in class when called on?) Do you think I did a good job of valuing your thought process more than whether or not you got the 'right' answer?Would you mind elaborating on your previous responses? Was there anything I could have done differently to make you feel more comfortable sharing your thinking?Did this class help you become more confident in your ability to be successful in math? I'm not asking whether you know more information now than you did at the beginning of the year (I hope that is true). I'm also not asking about whether you got a "good" grade in my class. I want to know how you 'feel' about your math abilities.How was the pacing of the class?How well do you feel Mr. Busch understands what math you do or do not know?I used several of different methods to try to get a handle on what you did or did not know: observation of in-class work, classroom discussions, exit tickets in Alg 1, etc. Are there methods you would like me to use more? Are the methods you would like me to use less?Would you like to make a comment about any of the above, this would be a great time to do it.Do you have any comments on things that worked well?Are there specific areas in which I can improve as a teacher?Formulas: Class and PacingFormulas: Class and Confidence

5/16/2018 9:02:261st period - GeometryIt went well.I liked that there was no way to show favoritism, and everyone had to have the answer in case they got called on, instead of just one person knowing the answer every time, and everyone else just letting them answer.Yeah, I was okay with it.Yes, I thought you really wanted my first draft thinking not just the 'correct' answer.I think that it was great. Even if we got it wrong, you still helped.Yes, I am more confident as a math student.Just about right.I feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.I think that more of the complex problems that require us to think a lot would be good.I liked the class. I think that sometimes I did badly on tests, even though I understood the material.I liked that doing the work actually mattered, and it was not just "did you get the right answer".No, not really. This has been one of the best math classes I have ever taken, and one of the best classes overall this year. Thank you so much.GRGM

5/16/2018 9:03:134th period - GeometryIt went well.It made everyone ready to be called up, because it is randomYeah, I was okay with it.Yes, I thought you really wanted my first draft thinking not just the 'correct' answer.Well, sometimes, it would feel weird when you came up and gave the wrong answer, but otherwise it was fine.Yes, I am more confident as a math student.Just about right.I feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.I think the way you are doing it now, is fineI don't have any commentsreviewing the homework the next dayNo, all around you were a great teacherGRGM

5/16/2018 9:04:121st period - GeometryIt went well.Yeah, I was okay with it.Yes, I thought you really wanted my first draft thinking not just the 'correct' answer.Yes, I am more confident as a math student.Just about right.I feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.I thought that in class work and discussions were the most helpful. I liked having students present the answers and how we had open discussions in class.I can't think of anything specific.GRGM
5
5/16/2018 9:04:181st period - GeometryIt went well.I thought that the cards were a helpful way to make people talk, and at the same time sometimes I got called on from the cards but didn't know the answer. Yeah, I was okay with it.Yes, I thought you really wanted my first draft thinking not just the 'correct' answer.You did a good job making class participation comfortable. Yes, I am more confident as a math student.Just about right.I feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.I liked how you used multiple methods to determine what I understood, because sometimes on my tests I understood things, but just was in a really bad headspace and didn't do well. Your class was really fun and I learned a lot. No. GRGM

5/16/2018 9:04:241st period - GeometryIt went well.Put an option for the how did it go for in the middle please. I liked the class but didn't like the complete the square thing.Yeah, I was okay with it.Yes, I thought you really wanted my first draft thinking not just the 'correct' answer.It was nice because even if I got something wrong on a practice as long as I understood it it was okYes, I am more confident as a math student.Just about right.I do not feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.I think all of the methods are fine just a bit less notes and more time for working on practicenopeAlmost everythingNoGRGM

5/16/2018 9:04:501st period - GeometryI didn't like it.If you didn't know the answer, you were sort of just put on the spot.Yeah, I was okay with it.No, I felt like you only wanted me to say the 'right' thing.People should raise their hands for answers and sometimes I'm not done with the problem and I get called.I'm probably about the same as previous years.Just about right.I feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.I don't knownoI feel that the review in class work days were helpful.I don't knowGRGS

5/16/2018 9:05:291st period - GeometryIt went well.Sometimes, it seemed like they didn't get mixed up that well. It was also kind of stressful if you didn't know the answerYeah, I was okay with it.Yes, I thought you really wanted my first draft thinking not just the 'correct' answer.Yes, I am more confident as a math student.Just about right.I feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.I think you did a good job of evaluatingI liked the cards a lot, and there was usually a good amount of homeworkSometimes, the homework was overwhelming, and sometimes it was about 3 problems. It was kind of hard to know how much time to budget for homework, but it doesn't need to be changedGRGM

5/16/2018 9:05:381st period - GeometryIt went well.I really liked the randomness of the cards. It forced everyone to be ready to participate. Keep doing it!Yeah, I was okay with it.Yes, I thought you really wanted my first draft thinking not just the 'correct' answer.You are a very open person, allowing for a very free-thinking class. You saying "lets elaborate" rather than you are wrong made me feel better about myself even though that my answers were completely wrong. Structuring the questions in steps of "drafts" helped us go through the process, and understand the concept better.I'm probably about the same as previous years.Too fast.I feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.I really like the fun real-world scenario problems. It helped me think about what applications this concept had in the world.The pacing of the class was very fast for me, and I am not a fan of that. Having enough time to get the concept really helps me, and I think due to the pacing, I didn't learn enough...I liked the system of notes, and the system of Concept, quiz(maybe), more notes, then test... it is very effective to stager the learning in order to help refine and understand the concept. I would say just to be more aware of time. We as a class have a habit of going past the bell, and due to this, I have been late to my classes several times...
[My note: this student was habitually late leaving class]

5/16/2018 9:06:081st period - GeometryIt went well.I think is was okay since it gave everybody an opportunity to participate, but sometimes it was stressful because you never knew when you would be called on and sometimes I didn't know the answer. Yeah, I was okay with it.Yes, I thought you really wanted my first draft thinking not just the 'correct' answer.I thought it was good that we had to walk through our thinking process because whenever someone did that and I didn't get the right answer, I was able to understand it.Yes, I am more confident as a math student.Just about right.I feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.I thought it was good since you knew what we were capable of and you didn't push us way too much. You still pushed us to do more, but not too much that it was over the top. Sometimes the class was a little fast, but overall it was at a good pace and I was able to keep up.I thought the questions on the homework and the reviews we do before tests was really helpful. Also, I like talking with my table group before we talk as a whole class. I don't knowGRGM
11
5/16/2018 9:06:311st period - GeometryIt went well.I think it was a good way to make sure that students are engaged and understand the concepts. It also started conversation when sometimes no one had anything to say.Yeah, I was okay with it.Yes, I thought you really wanted my first draft thinking not just the 'correct' answer.I think that you did a great job of maintaining a good mix of supporting students in understanding concepts and still leading us in the right directionYes, I am more confident as a math student.Just about right.I feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.I think that in observation of class work, you would be able to get a good understanding of how students are doing in your class. The slideshow presentation of giving notes worked well, and I liked the worksheets that stimulated deeper thinking of concepts we already know.No, I think that you are doing a great job in supporting students in the mathematics abilities.GRGM
12
5/16/2018 9:06:541st period - GeometryIt went well.I liked it because not only the smart people were answering the questions and others got to work it out. Yeah, I was okay with it.Yes, I thought you really wanted my first draft thinking not just the 'correct' answer.I thought you did a very good job at making sure people learned and understood what was going on and didn't just need the right answer. Yes, I am more confident as a math student.Just about right.I feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.I liked the methods you used and I thought they were very helpful in bettering my learning abilities. I really liked your class and I enjoyed taking it and learning more and understanding more and becoming a stronger student. The checking homework worked well to see the mistakes and understand the mistakes that were made. No, I think you did a good job teaching us and I really enjoyed your math class. GRGM
13
5/16/2018 9:07:271st period - GeometryIt went well.Cards are good for calling on people equally instead of the same people getting called on again or some people never getting called on. I didn't like how I was sometimes called and didn't know the answer which was embarrassing. Yeah, I was okay with it.Yes, I thought you really wanted my first draft thinking not just the 'correct' answer.Not getting called up to the board. Yes, I am more confident as a math student.Too fast.I feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.I would like to see in-class work a little more. I felt like the class went to fast because sometimes we would only spend 6-7 days on a unit and then there would be a test. I know that is the books fault, but it would have been great if we slowed down a little. No.Not that I can think of. GFGM
14
5/16/2018 9:07:291st period - GeometryIt went well.I liked how it made me more engaged with the conversation. I didn't like how I was called on for questions I couldn't answer.Yeah, I was okay with it.Yes, I thought you really wanted my first draft thinking not just the 'correct' answer.The classroom is a safe place, even if I get the wrong answer.Yes, I am more confident as a math student.Just about right.I feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.I don't like exit tickets.My overall experience with this class was pretty great.NoNoGRGM
15
5/16/2018 9:07:491st period - GeometryIt went well.It was fine but I felt a lot of pressure to answer questions that I didn't know the answer to.Yeah, I was okay with it.Yes, I thought you really wanted my first draft thinking not just the 'correct' answer.I usually feel open to sharing my thinking, but the cards put more pressure on me.I'm probably about the same as previous years.Too fast.I feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.maybe for each note section do a short activity. Just activities I feel like I don't know the concept well enough, but I like the "real life" aspect and just notes teaches me theorems and concepts well, but activities could be helpful.Proofs are confusing because of all the theorems to memorize. spend more time on those?I always feel supported in this class. You are my favorite teacher :)noGFGS
16
5/16/2018 9:08:291st period - GeometryIt went well.I liked the fact that everyone could contribute to the discussion and it wasn't always people who raised their hands.Yeah, I was okay with it.Yes, I thought you really wanted my first draft thinking not just the 'correct' answer.Not really. I really liked the idea of building on to someone's thinking even if the solution wasn't necessarily correct. That also made going up easier because there wasn't as much pressure to have a correct answer or a perfect solution method.Yes, I am more confident as a math student.Just about right.I feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.I really liked the methods used, and I felt that there was an understanding of what we knew or didn't know.Could we do more challenge problems like the track problem or the soup can problem?I really liked the combination of notes, homework, and challenge problems. I feel like I really understood the material with that system.No, I really liked your teaching style, and I learned a lot.GRGM
17
5/16/2018 9:09:301st period - GeometryIt went well.Yeah, I was okay with it.Yes, I thought you really wanted my first draft thinking not just the 'correct' answer.I'm probably about the same as previous years.Just about right.I feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.I liked doing a lot of in-class work and classroom discussions as it helped me understand the topics well. I think you should do more in-class stuff.In-class work time worked very well, as the students could ask the teacher questions.None that I can think of.GRGS
18
5/16/2018 9:15:191st period - GeometryIt went well.Helped include everyone.Yeah, I was okay with it.Yes, I thought you really wanted my first draft thinking not just the 'correct' answer.noI'm probably about the same as previous years.Just about right.I feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.I think most of those methods worked fine. A little less homework. I did well on most of the tests and still did very little homework solely because I believed that it was busy work. However, even though I understood the topics and did well on most tests, the homework checks wrecked my grade. This provides a false representation on how well I understand certain topics. N/AMaybe give students a little more flexibility in extensions and stuff. I do competitive club soccer, drums, and mountain biking. I also have a lot of injuries with my legs that are manageable, but only with PT. I go to physical therapy about once or twice a week and usually have morning appointments. This means that I miss class at least once and upwards of two times a week. With that in mind, I have a lot of commitments that I must attend after school every day as well. However, I sustained great difficulty in completing homework and occasionally had difficulty contacting you in a way that would help me makeup class time and homework without having to stay up until 1 in the morning to finish work, which I eventually stopped doing and therefore my grade dropped considerably. I like you as a teacher but this definitely put a huge damper on my enjoyment for this class and eventually made me dread it. GRGS

5/16/2018 9:15:451st period - GeometryIt went well.I think that it is good because it has everybody contribute
Yeah, I was okay with it.Yes, I thought you really wanted my first draft thinking not just the 'correct' answer.I don't really like talking in class, but it is the way it kinda has to be. Also, I really liked how you gave us points for knowing the answer despite maybe getting a wrong answer. Yes, I am more confident as a math student.Too slow.I feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.You could probably reduce the observation of in-class work. I think that there is too much homework to cement it in my brain. I think that I don't needed all of that to understand it well. I think that the probability unit went too fast though, but maybe it's just because I missed two days.I think that the concepts and the grading went really well. I also liked what happened in class. No, I think that you are a pretty great teacher :)GSGM

5/16/2018 9:32:421st period - GeometryIt went well.I felt that the card idea worked well, because different people were called on, and everyone always had to be prepared in case they were called, so it encouraged people to actually do the work. I think that overall it was helpful, and I can't really think of a large negative regarding this method. Yeah, I was okay with it.Yes, I thought you really wanted my first draft thinking not just the 'correct' answer.In regards to the second question, I felt that you did this very well. Not only does accepting all answered make people feel better if they didn't have the right answer, it lets that person clearly understand what they did wrong, because their classmates find out what is the problem with their answer. In regards to the first question, you are always friendly and happy to help us, but you also guide us to understand what the right answer is, and why, when we do not get it correct the first time. Yes, I am more confident as a math student.Just about right.I feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.I think that I did like the classroom discussions; they allowed us to all figure out problems as a group, and make us learn the information better, because we are figuring it out and dissecting it, rather than just being taught and told it.
Also, methods like binder-checks allow you to understand how our homework is going, and also giving us some extra time to do homework if we are not able to that night. Also, binder checks are very effective because if you are absent, then you have time to do work you were gone for and are not freaking out because there is no time and you are too busy.
I think that the pace of class is very good, and you do a very good job of teaching so that we comprehend, remember, and understand the information so that we do well on a test and don't have to do a large amount of additional studying, which helps to keep the pace feeling right. I also think that you do understand the math I know, as all of these methods show you how I am doing in regards to homework, tests, and in-class work. I think that overall the class went well; I felt that I understood the information well, and you and you're methods worked very well to teach us all. I think that it was a very successful year. One suggestion I do have is that I think you should make your slideshows more clear for when substitutes come in to teach us. Mrs. Lapp had a lot of trouble teaching us, because you often skip over slides, or don't take much time with a select few of the slides, while she didn't know that, and tried to go over every slide. Also, when you give us a presentation, there is a lot of info that is not on the slideshow, which Mrs. Lapp was not able to understand or teach us without searching through the text book. So, maybe just try to make your slideshows more clear for substitutes. GRGM

5/16/2018 9:49:442nd period - GeometryIt went well.I liked the cards because everyone answered questions instead of just 1 person.Yeah, I was okay with it.Yes, I thought you really wanted my first draft thinking not just the 'correct' answer.I enjoyed asking questions instead of worrying about being judged.Yes, I am more confident as a math student.Too fast.I feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.No, it was fineNoI learned a lot more than I did last year.No.GFGM
22
5/16/2018 9:50:362nd period - GeometryIt went well.It meant that every student got called on and it kept you from being able to single out specific students. Yeah, I was okay with it.Yes, I thought you really wanted my first draft thinking not just the 'correct' answer.No. I felt very comfortable sharing my thinking in class. Yes, I am more confident as a math student.Just about right.I feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.I really liked the classroom discussions and wish we did those more often. Also, the tangents that you'd go off on were interesting even if they weren't about math. I like the way you grade home works and tests because it should be more about if someone understands how to do it then if someone gets the right answer. Not that I can think of. I really enjoyed this class. GRGM
23
5/16/2018 9:51:262nd period - GeometryIt went well.Yeah, I was okay with it.Yes, I thought you really wanted my first draft thinking not just the 'correct' answer.If I'm honest, this year wasn't good for me. I'm less confident in my abilities as a math student.Just about right.I feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.No, I believe that all the methods were great.I enjoyed the in class work problems that challenged your thinking.NoGRGL
24
5/16/2018 9:51:312nd period - GeometryIt went well.I like the fact that it included everyone's opinions but sometimes I got called on with the cards when I wasn't ready to answer.Yeah, I was okay with it.Yes, I thought you really wanted my first draft thinking not just the 'correct' answer.um not really.Yes, I am more confident as a math student.Just about right.I feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.Classroom discussions don't really show how good some people are at math. Some people might be good at math but they don't want to speak out and they might be shy.Nope ;)The in class worksheets and big problems worked well because they were challenging and you got to work with other people.Not reallyGRGM
25
5/16/2018 9:52:232nd period - GeometryIt went well.cards were good because they had everyone talkYeah, I was okay with it.Yes, I thought you really wanted my first draft thinking not just the 'correct' answer.It was good we could start to answer questions even if we didn't know the answer.Yes, I am more confident as a math student.Just about right.I feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.Classroom discussions are goodokThe problems like the track problem and the gas tank problem were much more enjoyable than homework from the textbooknoGRGM
26
5/16/2018 9:53:152nd period - GeometryIt went well.Sometimes people didn't know the answer to the question, so it made them uncomfortable. However, this system encourages everyone to talk. It has its pros and cons. Yeah, I was okay with it.Yes, I thought you really wanted my first draft thinking not just the 'correct' answer.You made me pretty comfortable. There was not much more that you could do.Yes, I am more confident as a math student.Just about right.I feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.I think it would be better if there was an entrance exam in the start of the year that tested you on your geometry abilities. It shouldn't be like the BVSD test or PARCC. For the second question I was more in the middle. Also, for the first question I would say that this class could go a bit faster in some areas, but a bit slower in some others Overall, it should go faster though.I think that binder checks are a good system of homework. You could be more engaging with each student, but that is pretty hard to do. You are a pretty good teacher right now. GRGM
27
5/16/2018 9:53:162nd period - GeometryIt went well.I think the system worked wellYeah, I was okay with it.Yes, I thought you really wanted my first draft thinking not just the 'correct' answer.No, I think that even if I got the question wrong, I still felt like I learned something.I'm probably about the same as previous years.Too fast.I feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.More classroom discussionsI think if the pacing of the class was a little slower, the class would be better because of it.The card system worked wellI think for some quizzes and tests, the number of points taken off for one question was too muchGFGS
28
5/16/2018 9:53:292nd period - GeometryIt went well.I don't care which one you useYeah, I was okay with it.Yes, I thought you really wanted my first draft thinking not just the 'correct' answer.I'm probably about the same as previous years.Just about right.I feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.I don't care what methods are usedPacing of notes was perfectnot reallyGRGS
29
5/16/2018 9:53:342nd period - GeometryIt went well.I liked it because it gave everyone a chance to speak, and nobody dominated the conversation.Yeah, I was okay with it.Yes, I thought you really wanted my first draft thinking not just the 'correct' answer.I like contributing to the conversation in class, and I like speaking, so that wasn't really an issue. Also, I like how you valued the first draft thinking. I think that was really effective.Yes, I am more confident as a math student.Just about right.I feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.I thought that was good. I was learning a lot of new things in your class, but there was nothing that I needed to know that you did not teach me.Maybe a bit of review of Algebra 1 would be great to set up for Algebra II Trig next year.I liked the notes format. That really worked well for me. I also liked how you did the extension problems sometimes in class. That really stretched my thinking and made me understand the real-world application of what we were learning.Maybe make homework checks more common, so that students who struggle to do their work on time have to stay more on top of it and they have more guidance. Otherwise, I really liked your class.GRGM
30
5/16/2018 9:53:532nd period - GeometryI didn't like it.A lot of the time I knew the answers to the questions, and I wasn't chosen to answer. But it was really awkward when I was called on and I didn't know the answer. I felt embarrassed, but I shouldn't have because it was one question that I didn't know.Yeah, I was okay with it.Yes, I thought you really wanted my first draft thinking not just the 'correct' answer.I really appreciate how you go over every problem on the test and look at our thought processes rather than simply saying it's correct or incorrect based off of the answer because sometimes, I would do everything right, and then make a very basic and stupid mistake. By looking over the entire problem, my grade was probably saved multiple times. I'm probably about the same as previous years.Just about right.I feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.I really liked using whiteboards and doing the challenge problems. I don't know if that applies to this question, but those were really fun, and I was very proud of myself when I got them right. Thank you for a wonderful year! I have learnt so much!I think that most everything worked well for me. No way! You are an awesome teacher. :)GRGS
31
5/16/2018 9:54:012nd period - GeometryI didn't like it.Sometimes I didn't know the answer so it was stressful.Yeah, I was okay with it.Yes, I thought you really wanted my first draft thinking not just the 'correct' answer.You wanted me to explain my answers even if they were wrong so I could contribute to the class discussion.Yes, I am more confident as a math student.Just about right.I feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.I would like less cards to call on people and get their feedback.noI think the notes helped me learn the material very well.Allow food in class.GRGM
32
5/16/2018 9:55:232nd period - GeometryIt went well.It made people answer instead of having their mind wander.Yeah, I was okay with it.Yes, I thought you really wanted my first draft thinking not just the 'correct' answer.No it was just me having trouble sharingYes, I am more confident as a math student.Just about right.I feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.I generally don't like exit tickets (though I didn't get any in this class). In class work is good.The phrase "put your head down" really helped people to stay on focus.Less proofsGRGM
33
5/16/2018 9:55:382nd period - GeometryIt went well.Sometimes I wanted to speak but I wouldn't raise my hand so the cards forced me to answer questions. They help people pay attention. But they can be stressful when I don't understand the material.Yeah, I was okay with it.Yes, I thought you really wanted my first draft thinking not just the 'correct' answer.Sometimes the time to do the question is too short so I will have to do the question as I am answering the question, or it is too long. Well I don't always like showing my work so you sort of forced me to show my work.Yes, I am more confident as a math student.Just about right.I feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.I would like you to use problems during notes more because that helps me understand the information and stick it in my brain because I am actually using it.I liked how you let us work with partners who we can work well with, this helped me understand the material better.

Can we do test reviews in class, not with the textbook, but with you.
I really liked the low stress classroom feeling, how we are practicing math, not being tested on it every day.You can unintentionally put people on the spot in a way that may make them afraid to answer other questions.

But mostly, no.

5/16/2018 9:55:432nd period - GeometryIt went well.I think the cards were a good idea since they got everyone involved.Yeah, I was okay with it.Yes, I thought you really wanted my first draft thinking not just the 'correct' answer.Not really, I felt comfortable sharing my ideas and thinking.I'm probably about the same as previous years.Just about right.I feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.These methods worked well from my perspective.Make every question into third person.Mr. Busch has a very good teaching style that was very helpful in the process of me comprehending the math.Not really.GRGS
35
5/16/2018 9:55:492nd period - GeometryIt went well.I liked that everyone had a chance to get called on, but I feel like sometimes students wouldn't know the answer when they were called on or students didn't have a chance to show their knowledge.Yeah, I was okay with it.Yes, I thought you really wanted my first draft thinking not just the 'correct' answer.I felt very comfortable sharing my thinking! I wouldn't change anything.I'm probably about the same as previous years.Just about right.I feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.I would have liked more classrooms discussions and challenge problems, I found those fun. There are no methods I would want you to use less.I thought the class was well paced for me, which was really nice. I know that it might have felt different for other people, but sometimes thats what has to happen.I really enjoyed the challenge problems we did. I also liked how we were always using old lessons to do the current work, which helped reinforce the knowledge that we learned early on in the year. In most classes, I forget what I learned about a topic the day after the test, but not in math.Not always just giving us notes and talking at us- ex. have something in probability where we roll dice and see the results GRGS

5/16/2018 9:56:082nd period - GeometryIt went well.I liked the card option because it gave an opportunity for all people to demonstrate their learning, not only those people who felt comfortable raising their hands.Yeah, I was okay with it.Yes, I thought you really wanted my first draft thinking not just the 'correct' answer.There wasn't anything you could have done to make me feel more comfortable sharing my thinking. I really felt that my first draft thinking was what I was supposed to show, and even if it wasn't correct, it was still valued.Yes, I am more confident as a math student.Just about right.I feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.I feel that the in-class discussions really helped me learn, so I would recommend using these more.I feel that the pacing went varied slightly, but the average pacing was just right.Again, I want to emphasize that the in-class discussions worked really well.Not in the experience that I had.GRGM

5/16/2018 11:34:074th period - GeometryIt went well.Cards were a good method to call on students who wouldn't normally contribute to class. I liked not having to compete at hand-raising.Yeah, I was okay with it.Yes, I thought you really wanted my first draft thinking not just the 'correct' answer.I felt that you as a teacher helped encourage "first-draft thinking", as you referred to it, which helped grow confidence and let us learn.Yes, I am more confident as a math student.Just about right.I feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.Not particularly. Everything seemed alright. Some parts of the class were a bit too slow in pacing, like the similar triangles area, but some were too fast, like probability. These differences in pacing aren't that noticeable and don't affect me too much, but I did notice them. Not any particular thing. I felt the class worked pretty well. Not that I see. In Summit, I feel that you are in the top ranks of teachers. GRGM

5/16/2018 11:34:355th period - Advanced Algebra 1It went well.I liked how you alternated between cards and just calling on people; It allowed everyone to speak but gave those who wanted to share slightly more opportunities.Yeah, I was okay with it.Yes, I thought you really wanted my first draft thinking not just the 'correct' answer.I am a very outspoken person and have never had trouble sharing my thoughts, so I am probably not the best test subject, but for what it is worth I felt completely comfortableI'm probably about the same as previous years.Just about right.I feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.My favorite method was using tougher, more complex problems and then having class discussions. I liked that because it made it easy to work together to understand the concept while also helping you asses the class.I liked pretty much everything about the class, I always was excited for fourth period. I always felt safe and like I was learning meaningful things in your class.My one suggestion would be to not assign the first and second problems in the book; they were always pretty easy and redundant.ARAS
48
5/16/2018 11:34:424th period - GeometryI didn't like it.It always seemed to happen that when I knew the answer I didn't get called on, and when I didn't know the answer I DID get called on, so it worked better when I could raise my hand when I knew the answer and not raise my hand when I didn't.Yeah, I was okay with it.Yes, I thought you really wanted my first draft thinking not just the 'correct' answer.Maybe if no one could figure out why someone was getting the wrong answer, then they could do their work up on the board so people could stop them when they saw them doing something incorrectly.Yes, I am more confident as a math student.Just about right.I do not feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.Classroom discussions are good but I feel that only a few people's voices are heard by the teacher during those because not every person is called on.It would be great if after each lesson there could be some time devoted to just going around the room and seeing if anyone has questions because that would probably help a lot of people who have the same questions.A safe classroom environment was very supported and math class was very fun most of the time.Just to make sure that every kid is getting their questions answered.GRGM
49
5/16/2018 11:34:534th period - GeometryIt went well.I liked the performance tasks that we did during Chapter 11, because it relates math to real world problems and applications. It was fun to solve problems that were here for purposes other than learning the concept.Yeah, I was okay with it.Yes, I thought you really wanted my first draft thinking not just the 'correct' answer.I think you did a great job moderating the class. I don't think you would need to change anything based on my experience. Yes, I am more confident as a math student.Too slow.I feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.I enjoyed the performance tasks and real world application problems. The only reason for why I felt the pace was slow was because I've already learned a lot of the things.I think it would be great to do more application problems.I don't think so. The environment of the math class is really interesting and enjoyable.GSGM

5/16/2018 11:34:564th period - GeometryIt went well.I kind of liked it because everyone got to share what they were thinking, and they could choose to pass if they wanted
Yeah, I was okay with it.Yes, I thought you really wanted my first draft thinking not just the 'correct' answer.It was goodI'm probably about the same as previous years.Just about right.I feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.I thought that class discussions were good because it felt like as a class we could tell whether we understood it or not. Office hours was really helpful because if I was confused I could go to office hours and come out understanding it, or at least knowing what I need to do to understand it. I thought the way you added humor to your class made it much more fun than other classes I have taken. I mostly enjoyed it. Maybe there could be certain office hour times that are used to specifically study for the tests.GRGS

5/16/2018 11:35:414th period - GeometryIt went well.I liked it but sometimes I was called when I did not understand the problem. Yeah, I was okay with it.Yes, I thought you really wanted my first draft thinking not just the 'correct' answer.I liked when you valuated out process as well because when I make dumb addition mistakes that had nothing to do with the unit we are in, I could still get credit. Yes, I am more confident as a math student.Just about right.I feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.I was unaware that any of those methods occurred. I feel that if I do not understand something I will ask a question when we are checking our homework. I felt that some parts of the class were too slow while other parts we quickly went over complicated subjects. I really liked the tests and quizzes because if you do the homework and pay attention in class you will almost always get a good grade. I feel that this is how all quizzes/tests should be, but some other classes have tests that are much harder than the homework, which is stressful. Not really. Out of all of my teachers you are one of my favorites and I enjoy your teaching style. GRGM

Yes, I am more confident as a math student.Just about right.I feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.I thought that the class overall was awesome. It felt like it was about 10 minutes, because it seemed as though you were always prepared with a lesson, and new exactly what and when you were going to talk about things. Unit 8 I felt was a little fast, but it was not too bad, because I'm sure it was pretty much just me who didnt really understand it. I thought that the Inclasa activities that were online were super fun. Like the desmos activities, and the Bit.ly activities. The ovrtall feel, and energy in the class seemed cool. I am also very thankful that you did not complain about your personal life, yet still built rapport with us by telling funny stories about your family, and connecting the class back to your hometown. I do really poorly with book work, because it is really hard for me to copy down the question, answer it, and get the page numbers correct. I understand that book work means you have more time to spend with your family, which as a teacher I'm sure you dont get enough of given that you have to grade, and think up the next days plan almost constantly. However, if it is possible for you to add less bookwork, and more packets as homework that would be great!!ARAM

Most of the time it was fine. I propose a lifeline that students can extend to their friends if they are called on and are uncomfortable.Yes, I am more confident as a math student.Just about right.I feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.No, I think class discussions could've had more of an impact however.I enjoyed your class, I found some material hard but fair.You talk about rough draft thinking a lot, but on homework you grade for completion/ accuracy. Sometimes on tests we can get credit for our work but not often. I believe if you were to implement another section split with the 20% hw section for rough draft thinking(in class discussion, work, exploring topics) it would help bolster our thinking processes.

I feel like I learned a lot and am appreciative of your effortsI liked the more casual feel, you made jokes yet talked seriously. I felt it was a great balance and I looked forward to coming to math for the first time in a whileI don't think so. I was really appreciative of you sending people out who were disruptive and keeping everyones be interests in mind.

Yeah, I was okay with it.No, I felt like you only wanted me to say the 'right' thing.I think you did an ok job at valuing my thoughts. There was some times when you valued it a lot, but there were other times when i felt like you didn't care at all. Also the reason I said yes for the first question was because there were times that I did feel fine with answering but there were other times when I had no clue what the answer was and I didn't want to speak. I dont think that the cards helped, it just made not want to go to math for fear that I would get called on. Yes, I am more confident as a math student.Too fast.I do not feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.I think more exit tickets would be better, an exit ticket after every lesson which would force me to work on the stuff we learned not just think about it. I think that it would be better if we turned in the homework the day it was due. Over the course of the year I would turn in my binder but I wouldn't know that stuff had gotten ripped out in my bag so I would get lots of points off. It would be better to just turn the homework in the day it was due.making notes for points. It makes people need to take notes.Your elaborations, some were kind of confusing.

If we did learn it last year, then I wasn't paying attention. I learned things at a good pace to the point where I could understand what I was being taught.

I thought you did very wellYes, I am more confident as a math student.Just about right.I feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.I think that there should be more classroom discussion and a little more exit ticketsI felt that the organization of the units were great.Check homework more to motivate to do homework. For example checking for completion the first time then the quality of the work in binder checks. ARAM

5/16/2018 12:59:325th period - Advanced Algebra 1It went well.I think the cards did keep everyone involved. However, sometimes I was called to answer a question that I didn't know which I disliked. Yeah, I was okay with it.Yes, I thought you really wanted my first draft thinking not just the 'correct' answer.You honored everyone's way of thinking which I think is important to do. Getting partial credit was great on assignments because I got credit for understanding the concept which is more important than getting the correct answer.Yes, I am more confident as a math student.Just about right.I feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.The balance of all the methods was very effective. Maybe more exit tickets?The binder checks worked very well. It was nice to turn everything in at once so that I could look back at previous assignments to help me with my homework. I also loved getting credit for taking notes! The style of notes was organized and I learned a lot from them. Also, it was so helpful that you put notes, and answer keys on schoology.Nope.ARAM

5/16/2018 13:00:015th period - Advanced Algebra 1I didn't like it.I didn't like it because after speaking once at the beginning of the class I had to be silent and didn't get to answer questions (that I was the only person who knew the answer to) for the remainder of the day.Yeah, I was okay with it.Yes, I thought you really wanted my first draft thinking not just the 'correct' answer.For both of the previous questions it was difficult for me to gauge because I had no trouble speaking in class due to the fact that I knew the material. Also, my answers rarely had to be reviewed because the were correct over 90% of the time.I'm probably about the same as previous years.Too slow.I do not feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.Honestly I just feel like I didn't learn anything in this class until maybe one unit in April/May, I feel as though Mr. Busch didn't seem to understand that I knew the material before it was taught.As I said, the class pace was much to slow.Binder checks at the end of each unit.Much less textbook work and much more packets and fun activities.ASAS

5/16/2018 13:00:045th period - Advanced Algebra 1It went well.I didn't like how often I was called on when I did not know the answer and how I wasn't called on when I did know the answer but it wasn't to bad.Yeah, I was okay with it.Yes, I thought you really wanted my first draft thinking not just the 'correct' answer.I don't like speaking in front of the class anywhere but it was ok. I liked how the correct answer wasn't always important and how we could revise our work.Yes, I am more confident as a math student.Just about right.I feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.Sometimes I didn't like the cardsorts we did because we did them too often sometimes but I like doing different activities and they were still fun. Sometimes we went a little to fast but for the most part it was good.I liked having test and quiz review.None :)ARAM
76
5/16/2018 13:03:005th period - Advanced Algebra 1I didn't like it.I feel like if some people didn't have the answer and they were called on it was embarrassing and they felt like they didn't want to contribute in fear of not knowing the answerYeah, I was okay with it.Yes, I thought you really wanted my first draft thinking not just the 'correct' answer.no it was alrightI'm probably about the same as previous years.Too fast.I do not feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.I don't knowI don't knowI think we went to fast and I had trouble keeping upAFAS

5/16/2018 13:40:576th period - Advanced Algebra 1It went well.I liked that it made sure everyone was paying attention but I didn't like how sometimes you got called on when you weren't ready.Yeah, I was okay with it.Yes, I thought you really wanted my first draft thinking not just the 'correct' answer.I'm probably about the same as previous years.Just about right.I feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.I would like for you to have ways for people who already know the material to stay engaged in class.I really enjoyed how you didn't judge only on the answer of a question.It doesn't really relate to teaching but if you could try to think a bit less in binaries involving the frequent uses of "sir" and "ma'am" as I know it has made some people uncomfertable. Thank you!ARAS

5/16/2018 13:41:135th period - Advanced Algebra 1I didn't like it.When it comes to math, I am pretty hard to please ,but I did not like the binder checks. They were stressful and there was little reward. You should assign less homework and do practice in class. Yeah, I was okay with it.Yes, I thought you really wanted my first draft thinking not just the 'correct' answer.no. you did a good jobIf I'm honest, this year wasn't good for me. I'm less confident in my abilities as a math student.Too fast.I feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.Classroom discussions!noThe notes were goodthere are a fewAFAL

5/16/2018 13:41:256th period - Advanced Algebra 1It went well.I thought that it made me have to talk in class sometimes, which I think was good for me. Yeah, I was okay with it.Yes, I thought you really wanted my first draft thinking not just the 'correct' answer.I felt really comfortable and it was my favorite class. The environment in class was fun, and I also ended up learning a lot. Yes, I am more confident as a math student.Just about right.I feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.I think that the classroom discussions, in-class work, and the exit tickets were good. Your teaching was really helpful and I felt like I understood math better than any year before. Your teaching was really helpful and made me feel more confident about my math skills. I am really grateful for all of your help for me as a student this year. I can't think of anything. ARAM

5/16/2018 13:41:425th period - Advanced Algebra 1It went well.When people would constantly be engaged.Yeah, I was okay with it.No, I felt like you only wanted me to say the 'right' thing.I never felt forced to answer. You always listened to what we where saying and never said someone was wrong.Yes, I am more confident as a math student.Too slow.I do not feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.Exit tickets where good. homework should be less. it was pointless if the material was understandable.nothe testsbinder checks and homework.ASAM

5/16/2018 13:42:506th period - Advanced Algebra 1It went well.Sometimes it was good and other times not so much. Sometimes I knew the answer and didn't get called on but then when I did get called on I did not know the answer. Yeah, I was okay with it.Yes, I thought you really wanted my first draft thinking not just the 'correct' answer.I think that they way you presented learning was very good. I never felt bad when I did not get the right answer because it helped me learn and improve. Yes, I am more confident as a math student.Just about right.I feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.I think that exit tickets are good for you to know how much you know but we never figure out if we got our answer right. I learned so much this year and felt like I actually understood math (which is not usual). Your style of teaching was very helpful to me. No. I think your a great teacher. ARAM

5/16/2018 13:42:556th period - Advanced Algebra 1It went well.I like doing worksheets that we work on in class so that I can get help on something I don't understand, but not having to go to office hours and miss lunch or some after school time. Yeah, I was okay with it.Yes, I thought you really wanted my first draft thinking not just the 'correct' answer.No you did good. Yes, I am more confident as a math student.Just about right.I feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.nope everything was goodnopeYes pretty much everything was good.

5/16/2018 13:43:046th period - Advanced Algebra 1It went well.Because even if they were wrong you still got to see other people's perspectives. Yeah, I was okay with it.Yes, I thought you really wanted my first draft thinking not just the 'correct' answer.No it was fine. Yes, I am more confident as a math student.Too slow.I feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.Classroom discussions could be kind of boring some times. When we did the unit on finding solutions or quadratics, I felt like completing the square and factoring were a waste of time and I would rather just learn the quadratic equation right away. Homework load was fine, study buddies are great, test reviews are REALLY helpful No you are one of my favorite teachers. Good luck!ASAM

5/16/2018 13:44:276th period - Advanced Algebra 1It went well.I think it was good because you got to hear everyone's voices and I liked that it was a really supportive environment so if you messed up it doesn't really matter. Sometimes it was hard when you knew the answer a lot but then your card wouldn't get picked and you really wanted to call out or raise your hand but maybe you couldn'tYeah, I was okay with it.Yes, I thought you really wanted my first draft thinking not just the 'correct' answer.I felt super comfortable messing up and just making a mistake or saying something wrong because I knew that you didn't care if I got the right answer and just wanted to see my thinking. Yes, I am more confident as a math student.Just about right.I feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.I think the methods you used were really good and I felt challenged, but in a good way.

5/16/2018 13:45:476th period - Advanced Algebra 1It went well.I liked how it gave us a chance to learn from our mistakes and see if our answers were correct by sharing out loud. I wish that we got a chance to pass because some days I knew what I was doing and when I got called on and did it correct I was happy but other days when I didn't know what I was doing on the homework I wished I could have passed when my name was called.Yeah, I was okay with it.Yes, I thought you really wanted my first draft thinking not just the 'correct' answer.Allow passes if you don't feel comfortable sharing but everyone has to answer at least once a week so that no one can just not answer if they don't want to.Yes, I am more confident as a math student.Just about right.I feel like Mr. Busch understands what math I know.I liked the exit tickets and then showing the other class's cards so that we can learn from our mistakes.I feel as if some of the units went by a little fast. Also I really really really like it when we do practice tests in class because it gave me a chance to ask Mr. Busch questions.Over all I think that everything was great! I just wish Math Scholars was both semesters because it was so great and it definitely helped me understand more.Nope! I think you did great! :)ARAM
