Finish “The Road Less Traveled” for tomorrow

No new HW. Finish assignments from earlier

No new homework. Some students have a math assignment to finish from earlier today.

I will be offering an after school MSP prep class next week and the week after that. April 24 and 25 is for reading practice, May 2 and 5 for math. These classes will be open to anyone who can attend. Parents are welcome as well. Students must be picked up at 4:15, no exceptions. Any students riding with friends must have notes from their parents.

No homework tonight. I figures a math quiz and a practice MSP passage was good enough for the first day back :)

IF your parents say it’s ok, check out the information on the lunar eclipse. DO NOT go outside without your parents’ permission!!! I mean it!!!

No homework over break. HOWEVER… There will be a math quiz on Monday, April 14. First day back. It would be a really great idea if you all work on IXL over break. Just sayin’

The quiz will cover the skills we have learned so far this year. Algebra, decimals, fractions, area, perimeter, circumference, surface area, ratios and some percentages.

The IXL skills that would be good to practice are; B-1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9. All of the K and L skills. N-3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9. All O skills. P-1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10. All T, U, V, W, and X. Geometry Z-22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 30, 31, 35, 37, 41, and 43. Ratios AA-1, 2, 3, 11, 12, and 13.

Alot?!?!? Yep. These are the skills we have been working on so far this year. Pay attention to the explanation if you get a problem wrong. Email Ms. Summers if you don’t remember your password or user name.

Read a good book. Be prepared to work when break is over, we have a TON to do

Math; ratio worksheet. Write ratios at fractions. Simplify. Label

Practice for chapter test tomorrow! Try ALL the problems on the worksheet… we will go over everything before the test. Circles, triangles, rectangles, parallelograms, rectangular prisms, and pyramids!!!

Science tests are mostly graded. A few people still need to complete them before I hand out the corrected tests for student corrections. It will probably be Wednesday. Students may correct on a separate piece of paper, in complete sentences, using their books. Re-submitted tests need to convince me that the student knows what they are talking about for credit.

Friday is the last day of the quarter and is a half day. Grading closes on Friday. No late assignments or corrections will be accepted after that. Tests will be graded as is…

Math; Chapter test is scheduled for Thursday. Please be at school, as this is VERY close to the end of the quarter and there will be no time for make-ups

ALSO; math placement tests for Ridgeline will be taken in the next two weeks. There is one basic skills test and an algebra test for those who are working at high 3s and 4s. Students will be notified if they are eligible to take the algebra placement test.

I am looking forward to seeing all of you conference week!

Math; Compound figure worksheet. 5 problems. Students should use graph paper to help them look at each piece of the shape separately, then add the pieces back together
