Q2 Week 7 Standards, assessment & resources

Standards:

MGSE8.G.6 Explain a proof of the Pythagorean Theorem and its converse.

MGSE8.G.7
Apply the Pythagorean Theorem to determine unknown side lengths in right triangles in real-world and mathematical problems in two and three dimensions.

Retest Opportunities:

Thursday [email protected] 8:15 Room 818 with Ms. Tumbleston’s room

Thursday 11-16 @ 4:15 – 5:20 Room 817 Mrs. Bullock’s room

Friday 11-17 @ 8:15 – Room 819 /Mrs. Hill’s room

Change to retest policy effective Quarter 2:

 1)      To be eligible to retake a summative assessment, 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 summative 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 summative assessment 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 summative retest during class time is responsible for making up any work that is missed during that period.

Assessments:

Formative Friday 11-17 – Pythagorean theorem

 Weekly topics:

Monday – 8th Fieldtrip to Dahlonega.

Tuesday –  Finish U2B test & introduction to pythagorean theorem/ Remediation to unit 2B test
