Lessons-Part 1:  from front board (...see image below)


  1. Went over homework examples
  2. Discussed "Creating Circle Graphs exercise" - viewed results of selected groups.
  3. Looked at examples of different Circle Graphs from which to interpret data, as a review for tomorrow's quiz.

‚ÄčTurned-in:    Circle graph -Practice problem 1

Homework:   Study for tomorrow's quizzes

Notes:   There will be Learning Target quizzes on Friday (Jan 20) on LT #4.3 (Frequency tables and Histograms) and #4.4 (Circle graphs)  [Note: Because we are so close to the end of the quarter, there might not be re-take opportunities for these LT quizzes. Students should be ready to do their best the FIRST time.]


  • Students who received a score of 70% or below on Learning Target quizzes may re-take them to improve their score and to receive a passing grade showing that they understand the learning target. The cut-offs for re-takes are:
    • LT #3.3 - [simple & compound interest] - students who received a score of 6.5 or less (out of possible 9 pts.)
    • LT #4.1 - [mean, meadian, mode, range] - students who received a score of 6 or less (out of possible 9 pts.)
    • LT #4.2 - [simple & compound interest] - students who received a score of 7 or less (out of possible 10 pts.)

In order to do a re-take, students need to KEEP their old quiz, and BRING it in, with the correct answers (with explanations) on a SEPARATE FORM on the items they missed. [RETAKE FORMS AVAILABLE IN MR. USEM'S ROOM, or are available as a downloadable PDF document on his WEBPAGE] This will qualify them "ready to re-take" the quiz. Re-takes are to be done outside of regular class time, and can be done before-school, after-school, during recess, or during study-hall in Advisories on Thursdays. Students should make arrangements with Mr. Usem to do the re-takes. Students will have at least 2 weeks from when the quizzes are handed back to complete the re-take.

  • (Deadline for LT #3.3 is: TODAY, Thursday, Jan 19)
  • (Deadline for LT #4.1 & 4.2 is: Thursday, Jan 26)
