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.
All math students should know the square numbers through 400. Focus on one or a few each day. The goal is to know all of these by the end of the semester. Here they are, plus a few extra:
Homework for this week:
Foundations in Math – 1) We started working on a few pages in our book. Finish those pages. Between last week and this week, homework is pages 51-57. 2) Use your flashcards daily. Pick out 15-20 cards to work on. Set aside the ones that are easy and work on the rest for a few minutes. The next day, start with the ones that weren’t easy and add a few more. Again, set aside the cards that are easy and work on the ones that aren’t instant. 3) Page 50 of your book is about fraction terminology. Make a poster or other colorful, crafty object that includes the information on page 50.
Math for the Middle Grades – 1) Finish lessons 60-62. 2) Complete Homework 18.
Math 76 – 1) Lessons 61-67, and 2) Test 10.
Algebra 1/2 – 1) Lessons 71-75, and 2) Test 14.
Algebra 1 – 1) Lessons 75-79, and 2) Test 14.
Algebra 2 – 1) Lessons 76-79 the odds that are not from lessons 76-79, and
2) Test 14. [Note: In the textbook, immediately under each problem number is a tiny number in parentheses. That number indicates which lesson that type of problem was taught in. Complete only the odd-numbered problems that do not have 76, 77, 78, or 79 below them.]
Personal Finance – 1) Complete chapter 2 and “Before You Begin” for chapter 3.
2) Start using a budget: Each of you will be writing and living on a budget this semester. You have two choices: 1) budget on paper, or 2) use goodbudget. Goodbudget is an online budget tool available at their website, goodbudget.com, and as an app for iOs and Android.
Last week you wrote down, or recorded in Goodbudget, every bit of money you got and every bit you spent. This week, set up categories of spending, decide how much of your income is going into each category, and every time you spend record the expense in its category.
Some students do not have their own money. I highly recommend either running a fictional budget, or assisting in managing the family budget.
3) Activities will be in your email today (1/18).
