It was only a two-day school week because of the Thanksgiving break, so this time it really will be a short summary (honest!).  The MSM2 classes began working with two-step equations, which has taken a little bit of adjustment, but the kids seem to be adjusting to it.  We'll continue working on this when we get back from break and then move briefly onto multi-step equations before taking the next quiz.  The 7H class spent the two days taking the algebra unit test.

Once students finished with the required work in both classes, they were able to play on Sumdog.  Most of the kids seem to really love Sumdog, especially now that they know how to compete against each other as well as participate in both district and national competitions.  I encourage students to spend a bit of time over the break on the things they can do to bring up their grades (error analysis for assessments and making-up late/incomplete work), but they can also review by playing on Sumdog and some of their other accounts.

There we go!  Probably the shortest update ever!  I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving and enjoys the break!
