Students in Mrs. Rutherford's math classes reviewed for the upcoming Math STAAR exam with the help of the Turning Points Student clickers. Students were able to read the question, solve it and then send in their answers through the clickers. Mrs. Rutherford then showed the results of how the class did and explained which answer was right and why. This gave students a chance to seek clarification on math skills they did not understand and showed Mrs. Rutherford what concepts the students needed more help with.
