November 8th, 2010

We are previewing our new unit in Geometry.  The next two weeks, we'll be working on constructions.  You may peek at the topic with this website:

It is very important that you bring a ruler to class everyday the next two weeks.  We will use it for the straightedge and I will provide the compasses.

*I started out with a class set of rulers and now I only have 16.  The plastic ones break easily, especially when the student starts bending it.  The best rulers are the thick plastic ones that will not break when it is bent.  Any donations of rulers is greatly appreciated!!

Homework:  study vocabulary for test on Friday

November 5th

We reviewed with a jeopardy game with topics such as:  vocabulary, distributive property, relationship, equations, and expressions.  I answered any questions that they had on the review packet.  The final was taken the last half of class.

No Homework this week-end.
