Quiz 1 on Thursday 12/8.

Accelerated Wednesday

We took notes on Scientific Notation and reviewed negative and 0 exponents.  Students practiced these concepts by working problems on sheets 8.3 and 8.4, due next class.

TWMM mathxl unit 1 due Friday, December 9.  Quiz 1 December 9.

Algebra Periods 2, 5 Tuesday and Period 6 Wednesday

Students continued practice of nets and surface area by completing units 1.2 and 1.3 of Filling and Wrapping.  Students discover that, for any given volume, the least surface area will always be the box with dimensions closest to a cube.  Mathxl unit 1 due Thursday, 12/8 at 8 am

Algebra Period 6 Tuesday

Students are working in the textbook Filling and Wrapping now.  They have started notes in their notebooks about surface area (including drawing and labeling nets) and volume of rectangular prisms.  We explored unit 1.1  (skip number D3) from the text and then worked ACE problems 2, 3, due next class.

Algebra Periods 2, 5 Monday

Students are working in the textbook Filling and Wrapping now.  They have started notes in their notebooks about surface area (including drawing and labeling nets) and volume of rectangular prisms.  We explored unit 1.1 (skip number D3) from the text and then worked ACE problems 2, 3, due next class.

Accel Monday

We put more notes in our notebooks around operations with exponents, 0 exponents and negative exponents.  Students practiced by completing worksheets 8.1 and 8.2 in class, due Wednesday.

Test revisions should be completed as soon as possible, including revisions for mastery work.
