    Since it the summer time, I am not teaching at this moment but I am using this class to help me plan for the coming year.

    The concept I would be introducing is slope.

    Unconsciously incompetent: I know its rise over run when see it on a graph.

    Consciously incompetent: I know there is another way to find slope with points and that you need to use x values and y values but can’t put it together.

    Unconsciously competent: I know that you subtract the y values to get the rise and the x values to get the run. I wonder how this gets the slope and used in the equation.

    consciously competent: i know that when finding the differences of the x and y coordinates that they can be divided to find the slope which is the same thing as counting the rise and run of line on a graph.

    Just writing this out has helped me understand how to look for students understanding of the concept. Thanks
