Instead of the students doing a fun math assignment, they can do test retakes. I will have an alternate test for each of the test that we have taken this nine weeks. The students can study to retake a test on the 21. If they need to retake the vocabulary test, they can also retake another test. The vocabulary test should take about 15 minutes.

The words they need to study are:

algebraic expression | Distributive Property | numerical expressions |

Associative Property | equivalent expressions | order of operations |

base | evaluate | perfect square |

coefficient | exponent | powers |

Commutative Property | factor the expression | properties |

constant | Identity Property | term |

define the variable | Identity Property | variable |

# Grade recovery

The students have two assignments they may complete in study island. The first is on one step equations (or unit 4) and the second is one fractions, decimals, and percents ( unit 2). The students do not have to complete both, they can do the assignment that they have the lowest grade. The assignment must be completed by Saturday 12/24. I know this sounds mean having students work on their break. I did not intend for them too but I had issues setting up the assignments. The students user name is there lunch number and the password is griffinms. If you have any issues please e-mail.

The test will be over 1 step equations, integers and combining like terms.

The students are still able to retake test two times for this 9 weeks. They have 2 more weeks to retake the test to bring up their grades.
