Week of 11/29/2011

I can't believe we have already entered the holiday season! I know this is a busy time of year for everyone and I try to keep homework over breaks to a minimum.
Coming up this week in algebra, we will be finishing Chapter 7. Students were given Chapter 7 Problem Packets on the Tuesday before break. Those will be due the day of the Chapter 7 test, tenatively set for Tuesday, December 6th. After we wrap up Chapter 7, we will begin reviewing for the semester final, which will be given on Tuesday, December 13th and Wednesday, December 14th. This final covers Chapters 1-7 and will be used to help with placement in high school. I will share more information regarding this test in a later blog post.
In math, we will continue in Chapter 6: Solving Equations. We will be building each day on what we have previously learned. It is more important than ever that students are doing homework so they do not fall behind. If you see any zeros in the gradebook, that howework should be made up ASAP to ensure that students understand material before a quiz or test.
I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving.
