Welcome to week five! It’s hard to believe we’re coming up on our one-month “anniversary” of the beginning of the school year, but things are moving right along!
This week in Common Core 1A, we are continuing our unit on linear equations and expressions, both one-step and multi-step. For most students, this is a review and they are picking the concepts back up quite nicely. We will plan to have a short review tomorrow and a quiz on solving equations and writing algebraic expressions on Wednesday. Last week, we officially wrapped up our Statistics unit with group project presentations, which count as the students’ first test grade. We are utilizing guided notes in this unit, so students are following along with me as I help them take solid notes that will help them throughout the unit. This information is crucial to their future success in math, so I want to make sure they’ve got it!
In Honors Algebra II, we wrapped up our unit on Sequences and Series last week, and I am extremely proud of how my students did on their test! Over half the class made above an 80, and one third of them made a 94 or above. Needless to say, there are LOTS of stars on my wall this week (ask your student about that)! On Thursday, we dove into our unit on Algebraic Functions, which we will wrap up on Wednesday with a unit test. Because this class is honors, we take on two extra units that academic-level Algebra II classes do not cover, meaning we have to move quickly! Please continue to encourage your students to come after school for help when they need it, and please email me if I need to make special accommodations to help your student after school. That time is crucial, and it has proven to be the difference for most of my students!
Here are our schedules for the week, and be sure to check back for updates!
