Weekly Class Summary: Jan. 17-21

SOLs Covered: SOL 6.1 & 7.1 (New 6.2) Fraction & Decimal Relationships; SOL 6.8 & 7.4 (New 6.7) Consumer Applications
Math Dictionary Sections: (7) Decimals & Fractions (Review)
Upcoming Assessments: 2MP Review Quiz (Fri. 1/28/11)

After wrapping up our consumer application unit with a few more fun cartoons, video clips, and infographics, I spent time conferencing one-on-one with students about their grades and the things they needed to do to bring them up before the end of the term.  During the conferences, I tutored students on topics they wanted extra help with and we worked several problems together before the students returned to their desks to work on their own.  When students were not working directly with me, they were given time to work on their make-up work and to retake quizzes (either under the rules of Power of I or using my classroom Liberty Points system).  Students who had completed all work started on our second term review materials.  The second term covered all the materials found in sections 10 through 15 in the Math Dictionary.  We will continue with this during part of next week.
