Math - Week of 10/16/2017

 

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR MATH, PERIODS 6, 7, AND 8

 

TIPS TO BE SUCCESSFUL IN MATH - Have your math module packets, spiral notebook, and all other necessary materials with you every day in class. Taking good notes, completing all the classwork/homework, and staying organized are keys to your success. Review your notes/classwork each day BEFORE you begin your homework. USE your notes while you do your homework when you get stuck on a problem. Use the Go Math online resources like the Student Interactive TE. If you have questions, ask them in class, at lunch, or after school. Take advantage of opportunities to RETAKE tests (when available); this is your chance to learn from your mistakes!

 

TESTS THIS WEEK IN MATH : Module 4 Test (operations with fractions) on Wed/Thurs.

 

RETAKES for Module 1 and Module 2 will be available Monday 10/9, Monday 10/16, Wednesday 10/18, and Wednesday 10/25 after school. See me at lunch or after school to pick up your Retake Ticket (study guide/review). You must complete the review assignment before you retake the test, have your parent sign it, and study for the retake. You may make a study card for these retakes. Bring the completed assignment to me after school the day you retake the module test.
