Real Number System – SOL 8.2: Working in Set #1, fill-in numbers on page 12 that represent and are examples of each subset in the Real Number System. Page 13 is a graded classwork assignment that is set to be completed 9/24. Page 14 was a practice exercise prior to assigning of page 15 for homework on 9/23.
On 9/25 our pre-Algebra students will be participating in a district-wide Course Pre-Assessment. While it will not be entered in the grade book, scores will be used to establish a baseline to monitor growth through the end of the Third Nine Weeks.
On 9/26 and 9/29, students will be taking the online Measures of Academic Progress assessment … again not for grading purposes but for monitoring student growth during the school year.
Homework in Big Ideas text page 467 #3-27 (multiples of 3) and page 468 #32-37.
Use examples from text and notes from class (Set #1 pp 26-30) to help solve.
