I spent the first day of class asking students how they would like to see the class work for them this semester. I am going to try to have the students pair up each day so they can work together to sovle problems. The grade for the week is going to be based on homework and participation. I also had them write a paper on why colleges are requiring Advanced Algebra now. This helped them to think about the fact that math helps with problem solving skills. They also brought up that society is more competative and colleges are increasing their requirements to get the best students they can.

Sounds like you did a great job of getting them thinking about why they are in Advanced Algebra and what they should be trying to get out of it.

Just wondering how your class expectations turned out? Did you end up having the kids create them?

YOur leaving us hanging by not telling us how your class expectation policies went. Come on, what are you busy or something? Did you ask for feedback on the pairings after the first week? What did they think?
