### Have something to say?

Feel like you have something to say, but you don't have a chance to say it and have it heard? There is a global web magazine that is being started to air the voice of students. An example of an earlier addition can be brought up by clicking on the link below:

Let me know if you would like to be heard

### sub plans feb 23

To play the videos, please unplug the microphone from the computer and turn the volume up on the board.

1)Warm-up: Copy one of the riddle worksheets and pass it out. Students should do one side for their warm-up.

2) Investigation 1.2:
Students will read investigation 1.2 and then do the investigation. They should remember that slope can be found by (y2-y1)/(x2-x1). Caitlin, Claire, Sara, Paige, and Katie can be useful in 8a for helping the class. If needed, they should find the equation of one line on one of then white dry erase boards that can be saved for the next class.

3)Pass out the algebra sheet for the week (it's on the front table and it's one page)
Students should do the multiples of three.

4)Pass out the CSAP packet. It is due tomorrow. I have some originals that are not stapled on top. If you are having troubles reading, those should be better. Mrs. Degi's printer is needing a new cartridge desperately. I have one problem on the blog that you can view if you need to fill time.

The Slavens Math team qualified 5 mathletes for the state championships which is more then any other school! Delainey, Sara, Caitlin, Claire and Joe all will have a chance to compete for a state championships. Also in the competitions, Brian finished in the top 25%, CJ finished in the top 30%, and Sophie Knauf finished in the top 50%. A special note, Delainey had the highest score of all 300 competitors in the second round of the competition! These results represent a real accomplishment that we sould all celebrate.

I would also like to thank Sarah Graff and Sarah Armstrong for coming and cheering for our team with green and white pom poms in hand.

This schedule will change due to CSAPs

I am a bit disappointed that there were so many issues with the csap pockets last week. I know the copies were the best, but they were definitly readable and since the all the questions are explained on the blog, there should be no problems getting them done.

So here's the deal. On Wednesday there will be an open book/notes timed test on the csap packet. Any notes you take tonight on the blog videos will be usable tomorrow.
