# Sep. 23-27

You can check out the entire years lesson plans HERE that include daily activities, assessments, notes, & daily homework. I try my best to stick with this plan in the link above but things could change. The agenda on the board with the IC and ELO in the classroom overrules the Lesson Plan page.

HERE are your weekly homework assignments.

Find the correct tab and your 3 digit code and see if you are missing any work because you either didn’t have it in class for some reason or were absent. Either way I need those assignments turned in or they will remain zero’s. If you are ever out sick remember for every day you are out you get one day to make it up when you return.

### Ways to Build on Previous Skills Taught

Review Notes and Practice Daily: Regular review of your notes and practicing skills every day will strengthen your understanding.

Continue Using IXL Arena: Make sure to utilize this resource for extra practice and reinforcement of the concepts.

### Ways to Improve In-Class Performance

Keep Your Math Composition Book Updated: Make sure all notes, examples, and steps to complete problems are organized as we do in class.

Ask for Help Immediately: If a problem arises that you can't solve on your own, see me right away. Don’t wait!

Participate Actively: Always ask questions in class – don’t suffer in silence.

Show and Check Your Work: This is crucial to identifying any mistakes. I recommend setting up a T-chart for each problem: write the problem on the left side and all calculations on the right side. Make sure every step is written down, including small details.

Check if Your Answer is Reasonable: Use estimation to ensure your answer is in the right range.

Use Problem-Solving Strategies on Word Problems: Simplify the problem, look for patterns, make tables or lists, draw diagrams, work backwards, or solve a simpler version of the problem.

### What to Do at Home

Review Notes After Class: Go over your notes daily, highlight confusing areas, and prepare questions.

Start Studying Early: Study a little every day for upcoming exams, and avoid cramming the night before.

Keep a List of Common Errors: Create a "list of errors" note card to track mistakes and review them regularly.

Use a Self-Correction Checklist: Personalize a checklist to help avoid repeating specific errors.

Understand the Principles: Make sure you grasp how to apply the information in different scenarios.

Remember, Mathematics is Cumulative: Retain what you learn because each new concept builds on previous ones.

Practice Without Notes and Books: Once comfortable, try doing homework problems without referring to your notes or textbooks.
