Blocks 1 and 2: Today we talked about Chapter 7, Lessons 1 and 3. If you have not been able to come to school, read those lessons when you feel well enough to. HW- p. 579. We will have a test on Chapter 7 (except Lesson 2) on Monday.

Blocks 3, 4, and 5: Today we continued talking about area of parallelograms. You guys are doing a fabulous job with this, but remember to write your formula A=bh for every problem with the substitution underneath and then solve for the missing value. HW- p. 579- (you may skip 6 and 8)
