Answers to check your work:
In class today we discussed how to fill in gridded response answers on the EOG coming up next week. We also discussed what our testing environment will be like.
Today in class students reviewed proportions from yesterday (and homework last night). We had great class discussion about common errors we all sometimes make, and how to re-think them.
Today in class we reviewed the box and whisker plot quiz. We also worked in small groups to review Ratios and Proportions. We did NOT go over the Probability Unit Test because even though corrections were offered before track out, several students were completing the test late, and did not get the chance to do this. I can't resist the little sad faces, so I am asking every student that did not complete Probability Test corrections to please study those topics again over the weekend, and I will allow corrections during Smart Block on Monday ONLY . They need to be ready for only 30 more minutes of test time.
Homework: Complete the 20 problem review page. Here are the answers to the odd number problems. (We will go over the even answers in class tomorrow.)
