Weekly Class Summary: Nov. 25-26

SOLs Covered:  SOL 7.14 & 8.15 Algebraic Concepts
Math Dictionary Sections:  19 Algebraic Concepts
Upcoming Assessments:  Review Quiz Part 1 (Wed. 12/4); Inequalities Quiz Part 2 (Fri. 12/6)

This week's WCS will be short and sweet to match this shortened holiday week.  The two days were devoted to the quiz on two-step and multi-step equations.  I've graded all the quizzes already completed by students and I've not been very happy with the results.  I'm not sure whether it's the short week with the anticipation for the break and holiday or if it's the material, but either way we'll have an intense review on Monday when we return.  We'll go over the quiz and students will make their corrections, only this time they'll have my help doing their Error Analysis similar to how we did the EA together for the very first assessment.  Students who finished early, had their choice of Thanksgiving math activities to complete; any students who complete any of these activities over the break and return them next week will receive Lambie Points for them.

There we go folks!  The shortest WCS since I started writing them!  Don't forget to complete the Edmodo assignment!  I hope everyone has a safe and happy Thanksgiving and enjoys the break!  See you all when we return next week!
