Hi all! It's almost unbelievable how things have changed so much in the last week due to the coronavirus epidemic. I hope you all are taking good care. Wash your hands regularly, don't touch your face, if possible, and although we are practicing social distancing, try to enjoy people's company through virtual means and spend time with your family.
The following are optional assignments that you can work on in the next 5 weeks at home. They are assignments you can complete to help build a firmer foundation of things we've learned this year as well as prepare you for next year.
- Go to khanacademy.org. If you do not have an account, you just need to sign up using YOUR SCHOOL's GOOGLE ACCOUNT. Once you do, you will see that you are already enrolled in two courses, 6th and 7th Grade Math. Some of you who are signing up for the first time will have to wait for me to enroll you in the courses (I have to wait for you to sign up first to enroll you. I will be checking it frequently as possible so you may have to wait a little bit). Go at your own pace! You can work on this anytime this summer as well. I recommend doing this 30 minutes a day.
- You can take Course Benchmark #3 on bigideasmath.com (just go through your portal like you're used to). Once you are done, you can see how you did and review any mistakes. I'd recommend revisiting the lessons on the questions you might have missed.
- You can do extra review in the textbook. There are Standards Assessments at the end of each chapter (after the Chapter Test section). Feel free to do these Standards Assessments from Ch.5-9.
If you have any questions, feel free to email me. I will do my best to get back to you. In the meantime, take good care of yourselves. Will miss you all the next 5 weeks.
