BREAKING NEWS ABOUT MATH!!!!!!!!

1)  KHAN UPDATE:  Due to the increasing frustrations of the students and the differing amounts of assignments, I have decided to adjust the grading policy for Khan.  It is no longer due for a double test grade on April 1st.  It will now serve as an extra credit opportunity.  For every 20% a student completes, he/she will receive a 100 quiz grade.  For example, if a student completes 54%, he/she will receive two 100 quiz grades.  If he/she goes up 6%, he/she will earn another 100% quiz grade.  In all, the students can potentially earn five 100 quiz grades.  If a student only finishes 15% of his/her assignments, the grade will simply be left blank and his/her average will not be affected.

2)  ALEKS.com must be complete by May 1st.  The completion percentage will turn into a test grade for the 4th quarter.

3)  We are going to try center rotations in class so I can give the kids for one on one attention.  Stay tuned to see how it goes.

4)  We are going to start a program called Fantastic Five.  Students will begin each class by completing 5 math problems.  Each Friday, we will take a quiz on the topics covered throughout the week.
