Finished Mid-Module Test (and students had the opportunity to retake tests)

Algebra:

2-3C Simplifying Expressions

No Homework

Math 8:

Today we did a partner activity called *masterpiece* to help students prepare for their test tomorrow. I would say that this activity was a success but I did notice that there were a few students in each class that did not finish the activity so I wanted give an idea of how to prepare for tomorrow’s test.

On page 140, 141 & 142 of the math book students can find the three practice tests we were working on in class today. On page 144 & 145 they can find the rubric as to how these tests will be graded.

Tomorrow I am also going to give students an opportunity to retake any of the proofs we’ve done so far. Those are found on page 137-139 along with rubrics on pages 143-144. And we’ll have a bit of a question and answer session at the beginning of class tomorrow.

*Note: In class students asked for a test re-take day…that will happen Monday IF they are ready. So studying notes, correcting tests and practice problems would be a good use of time this weekend. *

Math 8:

Lesson 10 Sequences of Rigid Motions

*Note: We will have a re-take day on Tuesday IF the student is ready. So studying notes, correcting tests and practice problems in the math book would be a good use of time this weekend.*

Test Monday over rotations.

I apologize for no posts on Monday and Tuesday; I was out sick.

Algebra:

Today we did a review for the test tomorrow [Pg 102-104 #8, 10 and 12]

I recommended going over notes in the algebra spiral.
