Tuesday- This week's Must Do's and Exit Tickets. Students reviewed the homework from the weekend (see last week's post for the answers) and finished the geometry activity from around the room. We discussed the IB MYP grading rubric that will be used on the test on Thursday. Finally, we practiced order of operations (see page 3).
