Have a nice vacation!

Language Arts:

If you have your own copy of – or can buy a copy of – The Giver by Lois Lowry, please bring to school Monday after break.

See Ms. Paul or Mr. Miller if you’ve been absent and need copies of the short stories we’ve been reading between 1/30-2/16. (Thank You Ma’am, Charles, Flowers, The Black Ball and The Lottery)

Math:  

Currently we are working on systems of equations. We are doing classwork this week. Students are working on combining like terms, the distributive property, one and two step equations, proportions and solving and graphing systems of equations.

Function and Graph packets are overdue. They may be passed in for a late grade. They are labeled 6.1, 6.2, 6.3 and 6.4. There is also an assessment.

Please check your grades on infinite campus to see if you are missing any work or have a low ALEKS grade. Grades can be brought up by making revisions or doing extra work. Please see the instructor if you wish to bring up a grade.

Extension students are working on Chapter Three of the high school AMP 9 curriculum. They also have some additional (optional) classwork on multiplying and dividing rational numbers factoring and the FOIL method.
