We have just started quadratic expressions and equations in Algebra. The algebra students will take a regular unit test on March 1st while the math students take their benchmark. The Algebra benchmark will be March 29th while the rest of the students are taking STAAR math. This will enable us to cover most of the Algebra curriculum before the benchmark. The Algebra EOC exam will be given on May 3rd.
Please encourage your child to attend tutoring when necessary.
Honor students are reading a novella called The Wave. It is about a social experiment a teacher conducted with his class in the 60's that went terribly wrong. Once we finish it, we will conduct our own experiment where we see how quickly a small group of people can affect change on a large group of people. Get ready for some waves!
This week we are finishing up Unit #6: The Early Republic. Our next unit will cover the The Age of Jackson; this unit covers The Second Great Awakening, The Trial of Tears, the Industrial Revolution, the Declaration of Sentiments, etc. This unit has a great deal of drama in it!
Tutoring is available the following times:
Wednesday - Thursday Mornings (7:30-8:05)
**If students need an alternate time, they need to email me to figure out a time that would work the best.**
