Benchmark Test Wednesday.  Please review and study the list of topics that was posted last Monday.

All classes practiced solving problems with a calculator today.  Students realized that the calculator will not always give the correct answer.  Basic 4 Function calculators do not round, they also do not give answers in fraction form etc.  We practiced several examples in class of when and how the calculator would be helpful.

I provided the Math 6 classes with Review 1 First Semester Benchmark.  I told them that they should practice reading the questions and deciding what operation would be used to solve the problem.  They then could use the calculator to solve, if it was helpful.  We will go over these problems tomorrow.  This review will not be graded.

Math 6- Christmas Coordinate Grid Pictures Students completed one of the coordinate grid pictures and were asked to color it so we can use them for our Holiday party next Friday.  Be careful:  some of the coordinates are negative 1/2 and look like -.5.  The decimal is very hard to see.  Students in choir do NOT have to make this up.

Advanced Math:ADV Multi Step Equations Review  I posted this review yesterday for the choir students.  We will check this before the quiz tomorrow.
