Hello Students and Parents! This will be my last post. I want to wish all of my students much success in high school and beyond. It has truly been a pleasure working with each and every one of you this year. You ALL can be successful in Math...just keep working hard...SHOW your work...DO your homework...ASK questions. Be safe this summer...rest...relax...and have fun!
Attention all BAG students: Remember to bring a calculator and your geometry formula sheet to the final on Thursday morning.
Today the students worked on and checked their math review packets in preparation for Thursday morning's final. I also collected textbooks today. If you did not turn in your textbook today, be sure to bring it to me during homeroom tomorrow morning. Good Luck on all of your finals this week!
Bridge building continues at a good pace as the groups work to finish their bridges by the end of class tomorrow. We will break bridges either on Wednesday or Thursday depending on when we can have access to the weights. I did a book check today. A lost textbook form was sent home with any student who cannot find their textbook. The replacement fee is $43.98. I will collect the textbooks either this Thursday or next Monday. We will also begin reviewing for the final exam this week. The final will be Thursday, May 24th in the morning.
The bridges are looking absolutely amazing!! I am impressed by the cooperative efforts of the groups working together to construct the strongest bridge possible while staying within the building code. We will continue to build on Monday and Tuesday with the breaking of the bridges to take place on Wednesday. Please bring your textbooks to class on Monday as I will be checking to make sure that you have your book. I will NOT be collecting them at this time, because we will need them to review for the final exam to be held on Thursday morning, May 24th. If you cannot produce your textbook for me on Monday, I will be sending home a lost textbook form on this day. Have a great week-end!!
Bridge building is going very well! We will be breaking bridges a week from today. The students have gained an appreciation for how much planning goes into a construction project!
We are well under way with the Bridge Building projects. The groups are working well together and have spent the last 2 days planning and budgeting for their bridges. Please remember to bring in cardboard, Forster brand round/square toothpicks and a small bottle of Aleene's original tacky glue if that is one of your responsibilities. Every class is up to date in IParent except for 7th period. If I do not get those grades entered today, I will do so on Monday. Also, I have not yet entered quiz corrections on the Polynomials quiz for any of the classes. Have a Great Week-end!
Today we checked the homework from pages 430 and 435. We then completed 10-4 Study Guide in class (Graphing Linear Equations). The homework is to complete Workbook Practice 10-4 (all). There will be a quiz tomorrow and a study session before school at 8:20 am.
