Today we went over the first final review packet. We worked on the 2nd final review packet. It is due on Monday. Our Math final exam will be on Thursday morning, May 24th.

posted on: May 17, 2007

For the next 10 days, students will be working on a project to make a bridge out of toothpicks. Students will be placed in groups of 5 people. Each person will choose a job to do for their construction company. The majority of the work will be completed in class. Once in a while, you may have to finish up whatever was not done in class.

HW:

During this project, I recommend that students spend time reviewing each chapter in the book in order to prepare for the EOCT and the final exam. The chapter reviews in the book are a good resource. I will have one more EOCT practice for you to work on during this time also.

Note: EOCT will be on May 9th and 10th. We will put our bridge project on hold during this time.

Today we discussed how geometry is different from algebra. We did activities to remind us that geometry uses more written words than mathematical equations. We also began reviewing the algebra topics we will be using this year. We worked on solving equations for y. Please note that the algebra topics we review will be used throughout the year and it is very important that you understand them. We will have an Algebra Review Test on Wednesday, August 23rd.

**Homework:** ws #1; have parents e-mail me to let me know they have read my Syllabus and Classroom Procedures.
