Tuesday, January 31, 2017

Lessons-Part 1:  From Front Board  (...see image below)

Classwork:    Corrected  Arc-length & Sector-area Practice & Review worksheet  [GREEN]  -discussed varied approaches to solving problems

‚ÄčTurned-in:    nothing

Homework:   Complete Arc-length & Sector-area Practice & Review worksheet  [GREEN] ....if not completed previously   (...available as downloadable and printable PDF document on the 1/26/17 "Classwork & Homework" entry, or in the downloadable worksheets section [top right] of my webpage) 

REMINDER:  At most, homework is designed such that students should spend 30-40 minutes maximum of focused effort on their homework assignments on any night. (*Please note that not all assignments are designed to take 30-40 minutes, that is only the maximum time... most homework assignments should be able to be accomplished in less time.) If an assignment is taking longer than that, students should stop working, and come in with the work, as completed, for class the next day to discuss with the teacher the issues the student may be having that is making it difficult for him/her to complete the assignment

Notes:   Learning target quiz on LT #4.5 (Arc-length & Sector-area of circles) on Thursday (Feb 2)


  • 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 #4.3 - [histograms] 7 or less (out of possible 10 pts.)
    • LT #4.4 - [circle graphs] - students who received a score of 5.5 or less (out of possible 8 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 #4.3 & 4.3 is: Wednesday, Feb 22)
