11/20 Classwork & Homework
Friday, November 20, 2015

 

 WE HAD SHORTENED CLASSES TODAY, DUE TO OUR FIELD TRIP TO THE U of M.

Lessons-Part 1:   None

Classwork:  Began Lesson on Compound Interest -Notes from board only (no text)

Turned-in:   Nothing

Homework:  Make notes regarding the patterns found in the table we created in class today demonstrating "compound interest", and compare and contrast this with what we have learned about how "simple interest" works.

Notes:   

  • Students who received a score of 70% or below on Learning Target quizzes need to 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 #2.6 (Mis-labeled on the actual quiz as #4.5) - students who received a score of 3 or less (out of possible 5 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] 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 B.E.S.T. class. Students should make arrangements with Mr. Usem to do the re-takes. Students will have 2 weeks from when the quizzes are handed back to complete the re-take.

  • (Deadline for LT#2.6 is: Tuesday, Nov 24)

- students can come and work with Mr. Usem a variety of times each day, if they need extra help. Available times are posted in the classroom, as well as on Mr. Usem's webpage
