Class Information

Math Students are going to continue to order rational and irrational numbers, placing them on a number line. The numbers students will order are written in various forms (decimals, square roots, fractions, mixed numbers, etc.). Thus we must understand what numbers mean in different forms to be able to place them on the number line. 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 are continuing their work on the Civil War! Completed work on creating high level questions. Using technology to learn about the people involved in the Civil War.
