Squats (205#)

5x105, 4x120, 3x135, 2x145, 1x160, 1x170, 1x175, 2x3 @ 135#

Lunges 2x20 @ 10#

Split Squat 3x15 @ 10#

Calf Raises 3x10 @ 135#, 225#, 225#

Bench

5x110, 4x125, 3x135, 2x145, 1x170, 1x180, 1x185, AMAP x 145 (got 15!!)

Incline 85# x 12, 12

Dips (lots) - goal 20 per set: BW x 20, 25#x15, 25#x15+5, 45#x12+8, 45#x12+8, BWx20

Feeling really confident with the weight right now. I was able to get 185# smoothly and meant to do 140# with AMAP and accidentally put 145# on and CRUSHED IT! 15 reps is awesome for me! Looking forward to a solid DL workout next.

### Grades

Grades (Random Thoughts)

8.8.13

- More worried about mastery than playing the points game. Can the student successfully complete a certain mathematics problem? Yes or No. If yes, great, let's move on. If no, then we need to work to strengthen that student's weakness.
- How do I put this into a gradebook which deals strictly with points, percents, etc.? Where is the opportunity to write comments, observations .... feedback, feedback, feedback?
- Core standards, Intermediate standards, Advanced standards
- core - base skills that everyone is expected to be able to solve
- intermediate - more complex than core (i.e. fractions, decimals, etc.)
- advanced - complex, challenging
- Want to try something like the equation below to formulate overall grades for units (again goes to how to show this in my online gradebook) ...

- Creation of the core, intermediate, advanced standards also something I need to address.

### Algebra I - Unit 1

Shelly and I met this week to lay out our "topics" for Algebra I - Unit 1. This unit will get us to the first midterm of the year and should give both of us a better idea of strengths/weaknesses of our students/classes overall.

Unit 1 - Base Skills

Algebraic Expressions

Solve Equations (One Step / Two Step)

Solve Multi-step Equations

Solve Equations involving Distributive Property

Solve Two Sided Equations

Word Problems: Set up & Solve One Step/Two Step Equations

Word Problems: Solve Multi-step Equations

Unit 1 - Base Skills

Algebraic Expressions

Solve Equations (One Step / Two Step)

Solve Multi-step Equations

Solve Equations involving Distributive Property

Solve Two Sided Equations

Word Problems: Set up & Solve One Step/Two Step Equations

Word Problems: Solve Multi-step Equations

Word Problems: Solve Equations involving Distributive Property

Word Problems: Solve Two Sided Equations

There are "Skill Checks" for each topic - checking for mastery - these can be retaken to improve scores. Specifics of retakes and improving understanding still in the works.

We are going to give end of unit assessments - common. We have one created for this Unit.

*We also want to work on strengthening our students' mathematic vocabulary, but are unsure how to best go about doing this.

### LRB365 W30

8.6.13

Squat Day (205#)

5x95, 4x115, 3x135, 2x140, 1x150, 1x160, 1x170, back off 2x3 @135

Lunges 2x20 @ 10#

Split Squat 3x15 @ BW

Calf Raises 3x10 @ 185#

8.7.13

Bench Day (215#)

BP 5x110, 4x125, 3x135, 2x145, 1x160, 1x170, 1x180, AMAP x 135 (x17!)

incline 95# x10, x8

dips - BW x20, 20, light chain x15, 15, heavy chain x 12, 12, BW x20, 20

Crushed it today ... 180# felt solid (almost easy) and the AMAP I could have gotten a couple more if I had a spot ... huge considering when I started out I would be lucky to get 8 @ 135#

8.9.13

DL (320#)

5x135, 4x185, 3x195, 2x215, 1x235, 1x245, 1x265, 3x3 @ 195

SLD 1x12@135#

Shrugs 2x20 @ 135#, 185#

Chins 3x10 @ BW

Curls 2x10 @ 25#

Another really strong workout ... so looking forward to my progress over the entirety of this cycle (5 more weeks to go!!). Attack each day!
