Week of January 16th

Both Classes – Make sure you are bringing your calculator everyday. Phones are not to be used as calculators. You will not be able to use your phone as a calculator on quizzes, tests, or the EOC, so it is important to have a calculator that you are familiar with to use for those types of thing.

Algebra 1 – Quiz Wednesday over 1.1-1.3 (Unit Conversions and Number Systems.) Make sure your keeper is up to date.

Geometry – Quiz Wednesday over 1.1-1.4 (Angle Relationships, Triangles, Transformations)  Make sure your keeper is up to date.

 

Welcome!

Geometry – We begin our Probability Unit. Students should be prepared to quiz on Friday over Monday through Thursday Content. Test for the Unit is 11/11. As our Constructions unit is approaching soon, students will soon need a Compass. Here is a link to a good one: This link is the best compass I’ve found. But any compass you  would find at Staples or in the school supply aisle at Target is fine too.
