    Great questions.   I like the warm ups that you are referring to also and I think it will help with the spiraling.  I like what Jon said that by spending 10 minutes in a warm up you are actually gaining a day or two with the linear relations.  I also believe the students will be better at solving equations which will save you time as you consistently come back to it weekly.  Sorry, I do not have real world experience with this yet.  I tried warm ups that were 5 questions and like you spent most of the period going over it.  The idea of 1 per day is intriguing to say the least.

    I only have 40 minutes to teach 5 days a week, but I think these warm ups will save time in the long run.
