Some stress is necessary for learning. Too much stress prevents learning. If your student struggling, stressing, or spending too much time on math, please let me know. Maybe some adjustments can be made. Learning math isn’t always pleasant or fun, but it shouldn’t be torment and misery.

**REMEMBER: **All students should email me if they have any questions about the assignment, how to do their homework, or if they are struggling with a particular problem. Be sure to include your name and which class you are in when you email.

Here’s the homework for this week:

**Foundations in Math**

*Most important thing to do this week:* Be sure you have signed up for our class on Quizlet. The link and code were emailed. Let me know if you would like them emailed again. A few students have not yet joined our class on Quizlet. They are missing out on lots of important practice which is most of the homework for this class!

No new videos were added to the Educreations class. Pick one or two to review.

No new flashcard sets have been added to the Quizlet class. Keep practicing the ones that are there. Go for accuracy, then speed.

We’ve finished with addition and subtraction facts. We’ll continue to mentally add and subtract larger numbers as we move into multiplication and division.

In your 3-ring binder, there are some pages to complete. I will note the titles of the lessons I want you to complete. Keep in mind the page numbers have nothing to do with the order of the pages are in your binder.

Complete some lessons in your binder. I don’t have my binder in front of me, so take a look at yours to find tab 2. After tab 2, complete the lessons through the page that has a title something like “Subtraction Strategy One”.

Also, after tab 3, the lessons about multiplication by 2, 4, and 8 may be worked on. We have practiced doubling numbers. Multiplying by 2 is doubling. Multiplying by 4 is doubling, and doubling again. Multiplying by 8 is double, double, double.

Continue memorizing the square numbers through 400. The goal is to know all of these by the end of the semester. Here they are, plus a few extra:

In each lesson, be sure to aim for accuracy, then speed. Read the directions and try to think about the problems as the lesson asks you to. Also, when answering a work problem or story problem be sure to write the expression or equation you solved to find the answer.

**Math for the Middle Grades** – Daily work as listed on the blue sheet in your student’s binder: Complete lessons 24, 25, 26, 27. The lesson about balances is optional. We tried a few of the problems in class, so most students understand the concept, but it can be challenging. Parents, please score your student’s work each day, even if the student has not completed the lesson. Students, correct any errors and email me if you need help.

Homework as listed on the yellow sheet in your student’s binder: Complete homework number 9. Look in the homework section (“H”) in your binder and find the sheet or sheets marked “9”. Do not score Homework. Hand it in unscored.

**Math 76** – Lessons 30-34, and Test 4. We did the practice problems for these lessons in class. Complete the odd-numbered problems in the problems set for each lesson. Score your work as shown in class, and as described in one of your handouts. Score keys were distributed in class.

**Algebra 1/2** – Lesson 32-35. We did the practice problems in class. Complete the odd-numbered problems in the problem set for each lesson. If you haven’t turned in test 6, that’s due also.

**Algebra 1** – Lessons 36-40. We did the practice problems in class. Complete the odd-numbered problems in the problem set for each lesson. If you haven’t turned in test 6, that’s due also.

**Algebra 2** – Lessons 36-40. We did the practice problems in class. Complete the odd-numbered problems in the problem set for each lesson. If you haven’t turned in test 6, that’s due also.

**Geometry** –

Unit 5, sections 1 and 2, just the parts we worked on in class. Complete all non-proof problems. Complete the following proofs: 2.1, 2.13, 2.21, 2.23, 2.24, 2.60. The remaining proofs are optional.

All index cards through Unit 5.

Unit 7, constructions 10, 11.

On 11/1 there will be a short quiz at the beginning of class. Be sure to bring your index cards. You’ll need them for the quiz.
