• # I am updating grades in Power School for 1st-3rd blocks. Phone calls will be made to parents of students who did not pass their math quiz. Students will need to stay afterschool to make up their quiz or take the grade they made. Some students did not finish their quiz, and will need to complete them before a grade can be entered. All completed quiz grades will be reflected in PowerSchool.  4th block grades will be entered into PowerSchool tomorrow. Please feel free to email me if you have any further questions.

• # ABSS Middle College provides FREE online homework help for students in ABSS! Here is the link! This is pretty cool!!! Check it out!

• The quiz on solving one step equations was returned to students Wednesday. Mrs. Clary and I explained the importance of mastering how to solve one step equations as this is the foundation of what we will build upon for the rest of the year. Retest opportunities will be provided Monday and Tuesday. Please study the resources on this website and take advantage of this opportunity. Grades are also updated in Power School. Some students have missing assignments. Students have until the next progress report (2 weeks from now) to complete missing assignments. No late work for the first month of school will be accepted after this time. 10 points will be deducted for late work.

• # This week we will begin solving one step addition equations (Mon.), one step subtraction equations (Tues.), one step multiplication equations (Wed.), and one step division equations (Thurs.). A quiz will be given on Friday. Have a relaxing weekend, rest up, and be ready to dive into solving equations Monday.

• Study the Square Roots and Squares chart. Expectation is to memorize the squares of numbers 1-15.

Heads up....Homework tomorrow will be on estimating non-perfect squares.)

First Quiz will be Thursday and will cover these concepts.

# CCSS Math Standard 8.NS.1

Know that there are numbers that are not rational, and approximate them by rational numbers. Know that numbers that are not rational are called irrational. Understand informally that every number has a decimal expansion; for rational numbers show that the decimal expansion repeats eventually, and convert a decimal expansion which repeats eventually into a rational number

We will be studying the Number System! The link above will take you to online information that goes with our text book. Hope you find this to be a helpful resource.
