I have attached a copy of pg. 11 from the book, What Do You Expect? The two problems on this page are the homework due on Monday, November 22nd.

Next week the students will take a practice test in the computer lab on Monday. On Tuesday we will go over the unit test and play bingo. I will not assign homework for the Thanksgiving Break.

Happy Thanksgiving!

This and That

The students took the unit test today. Tomorrow we will be starting out new unit on Probability. I have told the students that we only have a classroom set of this book, so they will need to be more diligent about taking notes during class. If I assign work from the book I will give a copy of the page and they will need to rely on their notes to work the problems. They also have the option of doing their homework in my classroom before or after school to have access to the book.
 As we move into the new unit I have told the students any missing work or corrections from Samples and Populations must be turned in by Friday at 3:45pm. Please check their grades in PowerSchool and have them correct any assignments with less than a 70%.

Feel free to contact me with any questions! Thank you!

New Unit - What Do You Expect?

On Tuesday we are starting a new unit called What Do You Expect?
The following link is a parent guide explaining what we will cover in this unit and how you can help your child with homework.

Please let me know if you have any questions. Probability can be a difficult concept, but our curriculum makes it a lot of fun!

Also, instead of a traditional unit test the students will create a game using probability.
