Upcoming Field Trip
Students were handed out a permission slip for a field trip to the College Basketball Experience. This trip will be for Mavericks students only. A copy of the permission slip and information is below; it is crutial that all permission slips are TURNED IN BY FRIDAY, APRIL 15TH so that reservations can be made.
Math : Today we will start Pythagorean Theorem!! Students will discover what Pythagoras learned about the measurements of right triangles. Ask them to explain to you the measurements of a right triangle! Announcement:Unit 8, Week 2 homework was given Monday and is due Friday. We will also take Unit 8, Quiz 2 on Friday, April 8.
Science : Students are continuing to work on their poster project. Human body posters will be due at the end of class on Friday. I spoke with students and let them know that if they will be absent, they will need to work much harder the following day to make up for the time they missed.
Social Studies- Students learning about the strategy each side tried to use in the war! Who are these generals and leaders making these decisions!
English Language Arts - Today we are taking a quiz over chapters 1-3 of The Outsiders, of which focuses more on analyzing literary elements in the novel rather than just what occurs in the novel. IMPORTANT: Over 95% of students did not complete their homework last night (diaclectal journal). I do always accept late work, but not completing work does bring down grades.
