Math - Wakild
Monday and Tuesday - We started our Algebraic Expressions unit today using this powerpoint (this file also has the week's Must Do's and Exit Tickets). We practiced problems in class and went over the answers. You can find more supplemental help at this Khan video.
Wednesday - After the Must Do, students started working on this independent practice. They were also given this extension.
Thursday - Students were given back their first graded summative. We went over the grading scale and the symbols used to grade. We also talked about how reassessment would work this year. Students should be able to explain this to their parents.
Weekend homework - Students need to correct any problems they missed on the test, as well as complete this handout.
