We have been working every day toward the TACHS Test and we will continue until November second, the day before the test. I am supplying copies of prior tests and reviewing any questions that arise. If a problem that the student’s had never seen before is on the handout, we stop and I review the question on the board. There are a number of prior test we will be addressing to give the class a higher chance of success. I am also distributing two other parts of the test that do not fall under the topic of math. The topics are: Sequence and Analogies. I will distribute that handout on Tuesday. We will review parts of that work as well as the math handout, throughout the week. For homework Tuesday through Thursday, the homework will be to complete two pages of the math handout each night. That work will be reviewed in class. Also, the students are to complete one page of the Sequence and Analogies in the order of the packet, each night as well.
Tuesday: On Tuesday we will begin the topic of Simple Interest. For homework I will supply five problems.
Wednesday: On Wednesday, we will continue the same topic. For homework I will supply a handout.
