Math with Ms. Winstead »

February 18-21, 2014

Welcome to another new week!  It seems like they come around in a hurry when we spend half of them snowed out!  But, I hope that you at least got out to play in it a little bit.  I mentioned that my family and I love the Olympics, so this was the snowman my sister and I built in our backyard…


Anyway, I’m hoping that we can actually stay on track this week and not have to push any more topics back!  Below are our schedules for the week.

In Honors Algebra II, we’ll be wrapping up our unit on linear equations and testing on Friday.  Your students turned in their first projects yesterday, and they are BEAUTIFUL!  If you have a chance to drop by the school in the near future, I’m planning to hang their posters outside my door, so stop by and see them!

In Academic Algebra II, we’re also wrapping up our unit on absolute value equations and inequalities this week, and today will be our last day learning something new.  We’ll review tomorrow and test Thursday.  Then, we’ll move into solving systems of equations, which is usually a favorite for students because it’s like a big puzzle!

In Common Core 1B, we’re also finishing up our unit on exponential functions this week!  They’ve done a great job taking in this new topic, and I know it wasn’t an easy one to start with.  We will also review on Thursday and test on Friday before moving into our new unit on Quadratics next Monday.

As a reminder, tomorrow (Wednesday) will be the last day for students to retake any of their tests or quizzes from the most recent unit.  If your student would like to retest, please make sure he or she is up to date on all homework before coming in!  The best time to retest is during Ram Refresh on Wednesday or after school today (Tuesday).

Also, don’t forget the RHS Curriculum Fair is next Tuesday, the 25th, at 5:30 PM.  This will be a great opportunity for you to see what comes next for your child in every subject, not just math.  Plus, I would love to meet you and answer any questions you have!

Here’s to a great week!
