    Week 22 (2/10/21)

    Honors

    This week we will continue with the percents unit.  We will be going over how to find discounts, markups, taxes and tips, and what these mean to us in real-life situations. Students will have an assignment assignment at the end of the week based on eating at a restaurant and having to calculate several percentages.

    We will be working on setting up proportions for real life problems after a quick lesson on proportions and what they mean.  Students will have to explain why proportions are important and how they can be used in a situation they may encounter.

    Regents

    We will be wrapping up rates and unit rates, then moving onto proportions.  We will focus on how rates can be used to make important decisions in real life scenarios, and how proportions can also help us as well.

    Week 17 (1/4/2021) Happy New Year!

    I hope break was safe, enjoyable, and restful and I look forward to beginning 2021 with a fresh start!

    Honors

    We will be continuing on with chapter 5: Ratios and Proportions.  For Monday and Wednesday we will be wrapping up rates and unit rates, then moving onto proportions.  We will focus on how rates can be used to make important decisions in real life scenarios, and how proportions can also help us as well.  Homework will be out of the text book on Monday and Wednesday (5.1 exercises, pg 167-168) and there will be an end of week assignment.

    Regents

    We will start chapter 5 this week and completely focus on rates, unit rates in the form of graphs, tables and verbal descriptions.  Students will be using rates to describe and analyze real life scenarios.  Homework will be assignments where they need to show their work and submit a picture, some textbook work, and an end of week assignment.

    All students should continue to monitor google classroom for late/missing work and complete it for credit before the end of the quarter (January 31st).

    Please reach out via email (nicholas.orlando@wcsdny.org) with any questions or concerns.

     

    Week 16 (12/21/2020)

    Honors

    We wrapped up our inequalities unit with an assessment last week Friday. This week we will introduce chapter 5 on rates and ratios so we can hit the ground running when school picks back up on January 4th.  There will be no homework this week as an early holiday gift to students, but they will need to participate in class and submit some work for participation points.  Those assignments will be started as classwork and can be found in google classroom. 

    Regents

    This week we will finish reviewing inequalities and have our unit 3 assessment assigned.  It is due Wednesday at 8am BEFORE remote learning starts that day.  Students must submit their assessment before break. 

     

    All late/missing work is due by Monday at 2pm.  Mid-Quarter Progress Reports for all classes will be available on Wednesday.  Please reach out via email (nicholas.orlando@wcsdny.org) with any questions or concerns.

    Have a fantastic and restful holiday break.  See you January 4th!

     

    Week 15 (12/14/2020)

    Honors

    This week wraps up the inequality unit and takes into Unit 4, which is ratios and proportions.  There will be a review of inequalities, graphing, and word problems, then an introduction into rations and proportions.  There will be an assessment given out on Wednesday after remote instruction for students to complete by Friday.  The mid-quarter progress reports are coming due before the holiday break, so if students are missing any assignments they should be getting those handed in ASAP.  The homework this week will be on word problems/review, an assessment, and an assignment on the introduction of the new unit.

    Regents

    This week we will still be on our inequalities unit.  Students were introduced to multi-step inequalities last week and will be doing more of them along with graphing and then start to learn about word problems with inequalities.  Next week on Monday we will review the unit and then they will have a unit 3 assessment that is due before break. The mid-quarter progress reports are coming due before the holiday break, so if students are missing any assignments they should be getting those handed in ASAP.
