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.

Algebra 2 – Our Unit Test over Exponentials and Logarithms is Friday November 18th
Geometry – Probability Unit Test Friday – Thursday’s Review is to be completed for homework, and turned in before the test.
Algebra 2 – We continue our unit on Logarithms and Exponentials.
Algebra 2 – We begin a new unit this week, starting with exponents and logarithms.
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.
Algebra 2 – Quiz on Solving Radicals Monday. Then we will continue with Graphing Radicals
Geometry – Test for the Unit is Thursday the 27th. There will be a Review that will be taken up as a homework grade.
Algebra 2 – We Test Monday over graphing Rational functions, and then begin our unit on Solving and Graphing Rational functions.
