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 about two weeks ago. 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.
New flashcard sets have been added to the Quizlet class.
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.
- Remaining pages in section 1.
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 18, 19, and 20. 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 7. Look in the homework section (“H”) in your binder and find the sheet or sheets marked “7”. Do not score Homework. Hand it in unscored.
Math 76 – Lessons 21, 22, 26, Investigation 1, and Test 3. 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. For the investigation, we completed some of it in class. Finish the remaining questions in the “Surveys” section. The “Extensions” are optional.
Bring some colored pencils, highlighters, or light colored markers to class next week. We’ll be playing with fractions.
Algebra 1/2 – Lesson 26 and previously due lessons and tests. We completed the practice and odds in class. Students should score and correct errors. Students were also reminded of lessons and tests that were previously due but not turned in. If you need to know what assignments you are missing, please email me.
Algebra 1 – Lessons 26-30. We did the practice problems in class. Complete the odd-numbered problems in the problem set for each lesson.
Algebra 2 – Lessons 26-29. We did the practice problems in class. Complete the odd-numbered problems in the problem set for each lesson. For lesson 30, read the lesson and complete the practice problems. Skip the odds.
Geometry – LifePac 4, part 3, “Inequalities”. Take on one proof, work through it as many times as needed to master that proof. Then start another proof. If you can finish all the proofs, that’s great. However, if proofs are a struggle, it is more important to really learn a few proofs.
Work in LifePac 7, starting on page five and ending with the top part of page 18. Upcoming constructions are based on the constructions we’ve worked on. We will continue with construction for many more weeks. Bring your compass, protractor, ruler, and sharp pencils to class every week! Be sure to complete any index cards for theorems, definitions, postulates, etc. introduced this week.
