Allison Watts - Math
We have started our Module 1 of math which is Ratios! We will take notes in class, and occasionally have homework depending on how much we get done in class.
Join my Class remind 101 where I will send out updates such as night before tests/quizzes and any important things your students need to know before class the next day!
**I also wanted to put out there that this year we will need Binders for class for them to use for their math notes. This binder will stay in math class and they have the option to take parts of the notes home with them for studying but this will ensure that they will always get their math notes done in class. I will be giving them the whole entire module of notes at one time so that we don't waste class-time passing out notes every day.**
