Pre-Algebra: Students were supposed to come to class prepared by already looking over pages 183-184. We did take time to go through the Explore It! problem on page 183 and Example 1 on page 184. We did the Try It! on page 184 together. Example 2 took some time and required more work space than provided. The Try It! that followed Example 2 was also difficult. Example 3 and the following Try It! was pretty simple. We ended the hour on page 186. Students are encourage to try #4, 5, and 6 before class on Monday.
U.S. History: Students were given time in class to read and annotate a Newsela article about the relationship between French fur traders and Native Americans. Monday we will begin to discuss the French and Indian War. The article is due tonight.
