Pre-Algebra: Today we started with Example 2. Students were reminded to pay attention to the concept being demonstrated in the examples. The homework questions always mirror the examples. We moved onto Example 3 and the Try it! Students were asked to try #4 and #5 on page 132 on their own. We went over those answers then looked ahead to the homework questions. The notes and homework hints are on Google Classroom. The homework is pages 133-134 (#7, 9a, 10-14). It is not due until Monday. There is an extra credit graph that was distributed today. Students may turn it in to raise their 1st quarter grade, or they may use it to pad their 2nd quarter grade.
U.S. History: We started class by sharing some of the paragraphs that students wrote about the Columbus Day holiday. There are some future lawmakers in class. The next project was rolled out today. Students will be writing a 5 paragraph essay on the Jamestown Colony. It is due on Wednesday, October 30. The guidelines for the essay are on Google Classroom. Tomorrow is the last day of the quarter. Students are reminded to turn in any missing assignments.
