We are doing 20 questions correct for home work this week. Also the the students can recover from another zero or lower grade they have in prodigy by completing 40 more correct questions. I do understand that 40 is twice as much as the original assignment of 20 but if they would have done the 20 the first time they would not have to worry about the 40.

# Nov 4

This week we will have a quiz over exponents and their rules. Then we will start scientific notation. I am hoping to complete scientific notation in a week. We will also not have school On Tuesday. After scientific notation we will move to equations. Please don’t forget your student needs to complete 20 prodigy questions a week. I am also offering an opportunity for students to recover from zeros they may have for not completing the first 2 prodigy assignments for this nine weeks.

# Grade recovery for Prodigy

The students will be given a chance this week and next week to recover the zeroes they have for prodigy. They will still have 20 problems to complete for the week, but they can do an additional 40 problems to recover one zero. Next week they will be given an additional chance to make up zeros.

# Exponents

This week and next week we will be working on the laws of exponents. Any work the students do not complete in class they will be allowed to take home and finish for homework.

# Prodigy

Last week most of the students did not do prodigy and received a zero. Each week the students are to get 20 problems correct to receive a 100 for homework.

# Sept 9 – 13

This week the plan is to start on transformation. We will start the beginning of the week on rotational.

The students will take notes on rotation and graph figures and rotate them on a coordinate plain. then we will move to reflection.

and program autonomous robots using LEGO MINDSTORMS. Starts the first week of

September. See you soon!

# Aug 19- 23

This week we will be taking the MI test. Then we will continue with solving for missing angles of a triangle and exterior angle theorem. We will have a quiz at the end of the week.

# Aug 12 – 16

This is our second week of school. In my math class we will be working on one-step equation, 2 step equation, and multi-step equation. We will have a quiz this week over multi-step equations.
