- There is no one “right way” to do DDM.
- These handouts are meant as a template. While these handouts might already be perfect for some classes,
**teachers should feel encouraged to make any changes they see fit**to best meet the needs of their students. To facilitate this process, I have included all lessons on this website both in the form of word documents and PDFs. - Teachers are encouraged to work through these handouts before assigning them.
- Ideally, most of class should be devoted to student work time. The goal is that students can work through these problem sets
**without**having a lecture on the topic first. (But of course, teachers should feel encouraged to use the resources from this website in whatever way works best for their classes.) - The problems sets included on this website can be used either for individual or for group work. I usually have my students work in groups of 3-5 during class and then finish their assignments at home (usually working individually).
- The topics covered on these handouts are typical of an Algebra 2 or a Pre-Calculus course.
