Our textbook is available online. The website is: http://connectED.mcgraw-hill.com . Each student has a unique username and the password is eagles6. I gave each student a sticker with this information and asked that the sticker be placed in the front of their agenda. I have also asked each student to bookmark the site on their Chromebooks for easy access. In addition to the textbook pages, the site offers self-check quizzes, chapter tests, extra practice worksheets for each lesson, video tutorials, and virtual manipulatives.
Note: This is the first time we have implemented Khan Academy in our classrooms. It will be a learning experience for all. If needed, we will modify and adjust due dates. I am available most mornings at 7 am for assistance.
