Math with Ms. Winstead »

Well, that was fun!

Goodness gracious!  How’s that for a one-day school week?  In all seriousness, I’m very grateful that WCPSS is being cautious with our students’ safety, and this has been a great opportunity for us teachers to get better organized for the new semester.  I actually really appreciate the surprise break!

You’re probably wondering how those four days off will affect our calendar, and the answer is, not too badly.  Because only teacher workdays have been taken, we can push our calendar back and still have plenty of time for review before final exams.  However, you should encourage your students to jump back in next week with a ready-to-go attitude, because those quizzes that were scheduled for Tuesday are happening on Monday!  I won’t be introducing any new material that day, so we’ll have plenty of time for review before they take their quizzes, but I highly encourage some extra practice over the weekend to refresh the memory!  Below are some optional documents/practice problems for students so they can feel prepared.

For Honors Algebra II, try p. 50, #23-31.

For Academic Algebra II, try p. 110, #1-4, 12-23.

For Common Core 1B, try Independent Practice with Sequences.

Students are welcome to e-mail me or tweet me (@MsWinstead) with any questions.

And, here are our updated schedules for next week!  Check back in for updates on homework and files you can download.  Remember, if your student is missing a homework assignment or leaves it at school, this is the best place to find it.  If you don’t see something you’re looking for, please e-mail me!  Have a great weekend!
