Today in class…students worked with a partner on the On Your Own Task.  The task required students to write 2-step equations to compare the monthly payments of various items – TV, refrigerator, laptop, and car – and determine what you can afford based on the facts given in the scenarios.

Unit 2b Test Retakes will be offered on Wednesday, 11/8, from 8:00 to 8:50am, and on Thursday, 11/9, from 4:30 to 5:20pm.  Students interested in retaking the Unit 2b Test need to:

  1. Complete the Unit 2b Reflection – available in class – and get it signed by a parent.
  2. Complete the two Quizziz on my blog – see below.
  3. Make an appointment for the test date of their choice.

    

Homework:  None.

Upcoming Events:  

  1. Unit 2b Test Retakes on Wednesday, 11/8, at 8am or Thursday, 11/9, at 4:30pm.
  2. Unit 2c Test over Inequalities on Wednesday, 11/15 – tentatively.

The Math 7 retest process is being adjusted for the 2nd Quarter as follows:

  1. To be eligible to retake a test, the student must complete the remediation assignment.  This assignment may include a student reflection component that requires signatures by both the student and the parent.
  2. The retest will be offered at least once before school (from 8:00am to 8:50am) and at least once after school (from 4:30 to 5:20pm) within a 5 day period once the original test is returned to students.  Special accommodations for other retest times will be made on a case-by-case basis.  A student who needs to take the retest during class time is responsible for making up any work that is missed during that period.
  3. Other summative projects and performance tasks are excluded from the retest process.  These projects and performance tasks are completed in class with teacher assistance available for questions and help.
