Classwork:    "Moving Straight Ahead" Problem #1.2 (p.7) 

Turned-in:   nothing

Homework:    Complete "Moving Straight Ahead" Problem #1.2 (p.7)  -Parts A & B should be completed before class Tuesday

Notes:   Students received back many assignments today, including their QUiz on Simple & Compound interest and all "Late Work" submitted through last Friday (Mar 7).  The portal has been updated. incuding all "Late Work". Students may check out the "No Name" folder on my desk for assignments that they think they turned in, but did not receive back today. As usual, students receiving a score of less than 75% on the quiz can re-take the quiz; quiz re-takes should be done ASAP by the end of this week.

Also... during this new unit we will be doing quite a bit of graphing.  I suggest that students purchase a supply of graph-paper (the kind that has light blue, green, or peach colored lines for the grid) for use in their assignments in class and homework. Students might also want to have a small set of colored pencils with them to help with graphing. With these tools I have seen that students will do a much better job in their graphing, will accomplish it more easily, and the graphs will not only look better, but will also be more useful as a learning tool.

Quiz Re-Take policy: Any students who received a score of less than 75% can re-take that quiz. Re-take quizzes are somewhat shorter than the original.Students need to re-do any incorrect items from their quiz on a separate piece of paper, and show that to Mr. Usem (along with the original quiz) in order to be able to take the re-take.  Quiz re-takes are to be taken outside of class time, as arranged with Mr. Usem [Possible times are before/after school, during recess, during BEST (with permission of BEST teacher)
