Tuesday, August 23, 2011

We began with this opener (pdf). We also talked about the pre-assessment you were supposed to complete last night.

Today's lesson (pdf) investigated the use of proportions and percents with TNT, the stock market, and forensic science.

Your homework for tonight is:
  1. Prepare for the Solving Proportions and Percents Assessment tomorrow. There are a variety of ways to do that including, but not limited to: review the online pre-assessment; review your notebook and/or the openers and lessons posted on the blog; review the video, work some practice problems in your textbook or that you find online. You can, of course, also get help from me, another math teacher, a teacher in the Study Center, a peer tutor in the Study Center, or a parent, sibling or friend. Do whatever works best for you, but make sure you're prepared. The expectation is that you should all be able to do very well on this assessment on Wednesday.

  2. If you haven't yet, create your blog and your first post as outlined yesterday. This is due by first period on Friday.

  3. If there's anything you haven't completed that you should have (watching the video and doing the self-check problems, the pre-assessment on the Moodle, other assignments you have missing), please complete those ASAP.
