Believe it or not, we DO NOT have any homework again tonight!! So when your sweet son or daughter tells you that they really do not have any math homework tonight, they are right!! But things will change starting tomorrow night (Thursday night!!).
I discussed with my students today that we are at the end of the 1st nine week grading period. Next week will be “Exam Week” here on the Green Team. The math nine weeks exam will be given on Friday, October 7th. Students will be given a study guide for the exam on Monday, October 3rd.
Enjoy your evening of “no homework”!!!!
Much to our sadness, Simmons Middle School called earlier in the day and cancelled our match scheduled for Tuesday, September 27th. The good news is that we will have practice anyway, here in my classroom, A111, immediately after school on the 3rd bell. 6th grade will practice with Mrs. Watford’s 7th grade team!
Parents, pickup will be in front of HMS at 4:30pm.

We will continue our study of algebraic expressions/patterns this week. Students learned last week that an algebraic expression has to have certain components:
#1 – a variable #2 – a constant #3 – an operation symbol. Once we mastered that concept, we began replacing the variable with an actual number. We will continue to explore variables and how to substitute whole numbers for them as we evaluate (solve) algebraic expressions/patterns this week. We will also prepare for a short quiz on numeric, algebraic, and geometric patterns on Thursday, September 15th.
HOMEWORK FOR SEPTEMBER 12-16
Monday, September 12th……………….Lesson 2-1, Practice B all problems
