This week in Algebra we will finish Chapter 5 with a test Tuesday. Students will also turn in their Chapter 5 Problem Solving Packet on Tuesday. Please remember that part C of number 10 is extra credit:) We will begin chapter 6 on Wednesday and should have our first quiz on sections 6.1-6.3 Friday.

In math, we will be continuing our review of fractions this week. This will include an extra credit assignment relating to fractions and a test on Thursday. Also, we will begin preparing for our Trimester Test which will be given on November 10th and covers every thing we have learned so far this school year. Students will receive a review packet this week for this test.

Week of 10/17

This past week was a very busy week with two days off for students and the Explore test. I am looking forward to getting back into the swing of things next week with a full schedule.

In Algebra we will begin Chapter 5, which continues our study of linear functions. By then end of this chapter students should master their knowledge of linear functions. Students should also be prepared for another problem solving packet where they are applying the concepts we are learning in class.

In math we will be finishing up Chapter 3, which is solving equations. Students have been doing a pretty good job so far in class during whiteboard practice with this process. Hopefully I will see some great scores from Friday's (10/14) quiz!!
