This Friday will be our last district Common Assessment. Students received a review packet on 5/30, and we checked answers today. If students need more information, please see the following links for the answer sheet.

Students were given a 4×6 notecard today to use on this test. They may write any information that can help them on Friday. This card must be in class on Friday.

Also, this Friday all students will be taking an Algebra readiness test (30 questions, 30 minutes). This test is the first step in identifying students who are ready for advanced math in the fall. More information after the test will go home with students.

Next week we will begin working on a few statistics activities, with a final project due at the end of the year. More information about this will be shared next week.

Final ISN test will be Monday and Tuesday, June 12 and 13. Students will use their ISN for the test.

This year has really gone fast!! I can’t believe tomorrow is June 1.

All assignments that are allowed to be posted on the blog are there in two places. On the main page and in the Rates and Ratios Resources tab.

For planning purposes, our end of the year ISN test will be on Tuesday, June 13. This will be an online test. Students WILL BE able to use their ISN for the test. Words Worth Knowing will be the main focus, as well as activities that were completed on various pages. If sstudents do not bring their ISN to class on that day they obviously won’t be able to use it!

PLEASE BE SURE THAT THE WORDS WORTH KNOWING SECTION IS UP TO DATE!!
