March 8th, 2011

I sent an overview of unit 7 in the form of a letter by Georgia Tech to the students yesterday.  I told them to show their parents.  It has useful vocabulary, examples of concepts they will be working on, and the standards M7G4 a & b listed.
We are reviewing 3-D solids and making models of cross sections.  We will also be looking at transformations of solids and shadows this week.  All assignments are to be finished in class this week.

  This is finals week.  The students already took their math finals.  They will not have math homework this week, so they can study for other exams.

 *I have an extra credit project that the students can do at home.  I will only give it to students who request it.  I will give them directions to the assignment and the grade will be put on the next 9 weeks.

week of February 28th

We will be working on investigation 3.5 and a short project this week. The unit final review is Thursday and the Final is March 4th.

The project will begin today and will be due at the end of the day on March 2nd. It is an in class assignment. We will also be reviewing in the CRCT coach book this week. We are still in the same standard- M7A2 d.
They take notes on variations this week and watch a short video with examples.

Next week, we will begin working on standards: M7G4 a, b.
These standards will be part of our new unit next week. We don’t use a book for this unit. We use resources on a shared drive and handouts that I receive from the math department head.

February 23rd, 2010

We are currently working on lessons 3.2, 3.3,3.4, and 3.5 this week.  We have a quiz on Friday over investigation 2.  I regret to inform you that the students need to bring their own calculator to school for their math assignments.  The calculators I provide have been abused (batteries taken out, dropped, tossed)  and three cannot be used.  I have never had this happen and I don't have any calculators to replace the missing ones.  Thank you.
