I am excited to start a new school year! Welcome to all my 8th graders! We started the class by finding out how much money the United States paid to the athletes that earned medals at the Olympics this year (and how much they collected in taxes).
Here is an overview of our schedule for the week:
Thursday: Introduction to 8th grade math
Homework: Integer worksheet - "Why did the ant run across the cracker box?" Due Monday
Friday: Golf Activity - Learning how to problem solve. Discussion of class procedures and supplies needed for next week.
Please check this blog at least once a week, or better yet, subscribe so you receive and email every time I update the blog. I will post what we will doing that week, including tests and quizzes and homework information.
