We have spent a lot of time solving equations in Investigation 3. On Monday we will finish problem 3.5 and review before we take our quiz on Thursday (Wednesday is the Social Studies test). We will also start the last Investigation in this book this week.

Monday: Finish Problem 3.5
    Homework: Please note - these problems will help prepare students for the quiz
                        pg. 59 #12, pg.60 #22 and pg. 62 #24 a-c only due Wednesday

Tuesday: Review and questions over Investigation 3

Wednesday: Begin Problem 4.1
    Homework: Measure a set of stairs in your home (or at a friend's house if you don't have stairs). We will use this data in class on Friday. Please refer to page 71 of your book to see what the "rise" and "run" of the stair looks like.

Thursday: Investigation 3 Quiz

Friday: Continue Problem 4.1
    Homework: pg. 79 #8-12 due Monday

Looking Ahead: When we finish Investigation 4 we will have our first unit test. I will hand out a study guide approximately one week before the test. The study guide will be due the day of the test and will count for approximately 10% of the test grade. Students have been able to correct homework for 100% credit and quizzes for 50% credit (the points they missed). There are no corrections on tests. Please help make sure your child is prepared for the test and that they get any questions answered well before test day. We will have review days in class and I will set up 1 or 2 review sessions before or after school to help students prepare for the test.

Please let me know if you have any questions. Have a great week.
