Math Homework Change

Beginning this week, I am asking that each student complete an entire lesson in Imagine Math for math homework. An entire lesson includes the pre-assessment, lesson, and quiz. Students who don't have access to Imagine Math at home are able to work on it at school. Imagine Math can be accessed through Launchpad using the credentials found on my website.
