7th Grade Math:  Students are working on Topic 3:  Percents.  They will continue to examine the connections between percents and proportions. They will have a QUIZ on Friday, October 11.

Algebra 2:  Students will finish up Chapter 2:  Linear Relations and Functions.  They are looking at parent graphs and how changes to the parent function produce changes to the graphs of these parent functions.  Please encourage them to review and study their notes each night as this is a tough series of lessons for students to comprehend.  They will have a quiz over this information on Monday and their Chapter 2 Test on Friday.

Algebra 1:  Students will continue working on the second half of Chapter 2 which involves rates, ratios, and proportions. This week, they will examine percent increase, decrease, and error. They will have a TEST over the second half of Chapter 2 on Thursday.
