Wrapping Up our investigations of geometric solids … computing surface area and determining the effects of changing attributes by scale factors. By week’s end, we’ll be reviewing for next week’s test covering three standards (Composite Plane Figures, 3-D Models, and Volume and Surface Area computations of geometric solids).
Math tests are slated for January 21 – 23 on the half day schedule. The end of the semester, Jan 26, is also early dismissal.
Homework (except 7-4) in textbook: page 322 (4,10); page 323 (13-15); page 328 (7-9, 13). We did not get to the notes in 7-4 but students may try to figure things out.
