*To help prepare students for their math final, I have given them a practice packet with many questions. They should be working on this a little bit each night. We will also work on this in class so that students can ask me questions. Khan Academy is available for additional practice. I am after school for extra help on June 5, 6, 13, and 15 as well.
Lastly, math grades are posted to SchoolBrains (let me know if you can't log in) and I am happy to clarify questions regarding grades. A recent grade involved a "Popcorn" project. This project called for students to work in groups to develop a business plan to sell popcorn at an amusement park. The project involved rates, proportions, percentages, etc. Many had a lot of fun with it!
As always, let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
