Today we finished taking the Unit 5 test.  Students can make test corrections and retake the test later in the week.  Thursday will more than likely be the first day retakes are offered in the morning.

We started Unit 6 on Statistics today by watching part of a video and recording MSG notes.  HW:  Find the Mean for 10 problems.  Watch the first 5 minutes or so of the video we watched in class (stop when he starts discussing median).

Today we did a Scavenger Hunt to review Unit 5 concepts.  Study for the test tomorrow by reading through your MSG notes, looking at problems in your textbook, reviewing the attached power point,  and completing the QUIZIZZ review using code: 324424.  The chapters in the textbook are 8 and 9.  You can access the online text by clicking on the link at the top of my blog.

I have attached the problems from the Scavenger Hunt with the correct answers beside the problem if you want to review some you didn’t get to complete.  Unit 5 Review (Scavenger hunt) with answers-1irm176

Hope everyone enjoyed a little break from school, but we were busy today learning about volume of rectangular prisms. Review your MSG notes  before you complete the handout for homework.  Always show substitution of the measures and included units in your answer.  Students need to have a 4 function basic calculator.  One can be purchased at the school store for $2.00.  I have been reminding students of this for the past month.

We will have the UNIT 5 Geometry test on Friday. Be reading through your notes and looking at example problems. The warm up this week has a review of area and composite area problems.
