Weekly Class Summary: Sept. 23-27

SOLs Covered:  7.1 & 8.5 Squares & Square Roots, 7.1 & 8.3 Integers; 7.16 & 8.15 Properties of Real Numbers
Math Dictionary Sections:  Review Sections 1-6
Upcoming Assessments:  MSM2 Test 1 (Complete Mon. 9/30); PEMDAS & Substitution Quiz (TBA)

I'm starting to feel a little under-the-weather (hopefully just allergies!), so this WCS will be short and sweet.  Students took the properties quiz on Monday with some finishing on Tuesday, which was returned to them on Tuesday or Wednesday depending on when they finished.  They can still complete their Error Analysis for this, though many students have already taken advantage of this opportunity (I'm so proud!).  The rest of the week was spent reviewing for our first test, covering squares/square roots, integers, and properties.  As previously mentioned, time was cut a bit short due to pictures on Thursday (along with our monthly half-day Wednesday), so we spent a bit of time reviewing Friday before students started the test.  Most students will need time to finish their test on Monday, which I think is pretty good as I can tell they are spending more time really thinking through the problems and using the strategies we've covered in class so far this year.

Well, there it is--the shortest WCS ever I do believe.  Since it is so short, if anyone has questions about anything, feel free to leave a comment (it won't show up until approved as I monitor them), message me through Edmodo, or email either the "old school" way or through Edline.
