I'm keeping things short this week (the munchkin, a.k.a. my niece, wanted to catch a ride with Aunt Kimmie instead of riding the bus today).  I know I say that often and then send a novel, but this time I mean it.

All the classes took the second county spiral review quiz on Monday.  The MSM2 classes had a review week, predominately on the most recent topics (the real number system and algebraic verbal translations) with a hint of term 1 topics.  They did a matching activity on Tuesday and worked on Study Island Wednesday and Thursday.  The deadline for completing the assignment was extended to Saturday for those kids who had technical difficulties and for those who need the extra practice to improve their scores for each topic.  They took a "big" quiz (20-question summative quiz) on Friday.

The 7H students worked on solving multi-step equations this week.  This topic hit them pretty hard since it is definitely more difficult than anything they've covered before.  I had them make a "quick notes" card with the steps for solving equations along with my tips for keeping everything straight when working.  We did a lot of problems together this week, but the kids have the process down for the most part.  We still need to cover a few more of the Algebra I (a few of the high school level AI standards are included in the 7H course) questions on Monday before we switch over to inequalities, but the kids took the quiz on Friday.
