Homework:  Complete Arithmetic Sequences - Practice #1 worksheet  [ ...available as downloadable PDF document below

  • 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:   Quiz on Function Notation and Arithmetic Sequences on Monday, May 4.


QUIZ -RETAKES:                

  • Students who earned a score of 15 or less on Learning Target quiz #6.2/6.3  -
    • [Re-takes available ONLY thru Friday, May 8]‚Äč
  • Students need to come in outside of class to re-take them.  To re-take a quiz, students should come with their old quiz, and for any problems for which they did not receive full-credit they should have them re-done CORRECTLY on a SEPARATE piece of paper... showing all their work, both what they did wrong initially, and showing how to do it correctly.  This "re-do" of the problems will be their ticket to be able to re-take the LT quiz.
