Welcome back to school and welcome to 2018! Most people use the phrase “New year, new me”. This is the beginning of the second semester and our plan is to get refocused. We are going to begin this week with a review of our expectations and I am challenging you to find your motivation to do your best. 8th grade is halfway done so let’s get REFOCUSED!
Before the break, we were just getting into Unit 3 with the Pythagorean Theorem. We are going to review this further to make sure that you understand it and then move on next week. Watch the video below to refresh your memory of the Pythagorean Theorem.
Many of you are wondering how you can bring your grade up over break. Here is your chance!!! On Wednesday, you will receive a card with instructions on how to enroll in my class on Khan Academy. Below are the instructions just in case you lose the paper:
go to Khanacademy.org
In the “Add a coach” field enter the class code: STX48WAK
You’re set! Now click “Home” to begin the assignments on the list
In order to receive Extra Credit, you MUST complete all of the assignments on the assignment list. These must be completed by January 1st, 2018. Grades are due on the 3rd so anything completed after the 1st will not make it into the gradebook.
Tuesday, October 10th we will be taking part 1 of Unit 1. Part 1 is all about Parallel Lines and Transversals Vocabulary angle vocabulary, finding the value of missing angles and the triangle sum theorem. The attached PowerPoint will help you study the angle vocabulary and determine whether angles are congruent or supplementary. There are also some links within the presentation that will bring you to Khan Academy to practice some skills.
