The schedule this week is as follows:
We are gearing up for STAAR! The Algebra 1 STAAR Test is on Monday, May 5th. The end of course exam is on Wednesday, May 21st. Please note that the STAAR covers all the material from the year, with greater emphasis typically on linear equations, systems of equations, and systems of inequalities. The semester exam covers only second semester material, with very little (but some) material from the first semester.
Students will be doing corrections to the released STAAR Exam throughout the week. They should bring their packets to class each and every day. They will also learn and practice advanced calculator skills, so please don’t miss class! Students will be permitted a graphing calculator on both the STAAR and semester final.
The STAAR corrections will be a test grade and are due next Monday, April 28th. and will receive a test grade for these corrections. In addition, small packets of review material will come home each day.
Students will not have homework on Monday but will have homework on Wednesday and Friday.
The Chapter 10 Exams will be returned on Wednesday. Students requiring a retake can take the exam on Tuesday, April 29th after school. Tutorials will be available the latter half of the week (Thursday and possibly Friday). No tutorials are permitted on Monday and Tuesday due to testing on Tuesday and Wednesday. Tutorials will resume Thursday afternoon. Originally, I had scheduled special tutorials all the mornings of next week, but will not have them. Students needing assistance will also be allowed to come in during Team Time to get extra help.
