Week of 3/21/2011

What a busy week this week!! I am definitely looking forward to resting over spring break.

In algebra, we will begin Chapter 11. This chapter is one of the most useful chapters for geometry next year.

In math, we are finishing our chapter on percents (Chapter 7). We will have a test over this chapter on Thursday of this week. Your child should now be able to find discounts and tips without using the calculator on their phone!!

Weekly Update

This week in Algebra we will finish Chapter 10 (Quadratic Functions) with a test on Friday. Students should focus their studying on 10.6, completing the square, as this is where they tend to struggle most!

In math, we will continue to work through Chapter 7, Ratios, Rates and Percents. Part of this week will be spent on tricks for mental math with percents. Hopefully by the end of the week students will be able to estimate tip and sale prices without a calculator!!
