Have a spectacular Spring Break!
If you would like to get ahead of the class, you can try out the IXL strands on 3-D Volume and Surface area, T.7 through T.12.
The SOL is coming up soon! Math 8 is scheduled to be either May 22 or May 23. We will be reviewing in class, and feel free to contact me for any advice on studying. As always, I recommend KhanAcademy.com and IXL.com as review resources.
It is the final stretch before the SOL! We have concluded all of the new material, and we will be reviewing in class.
The SOL test will be on Friday, May 5.
UPDATE: By school policy, I was not supposed to give a homework assignment over Spring Break!
The IXL set is not required. It is optional, but it is still highly recommended.
It would be best to complete these IXL's by about one week after getting back from Spring Break (Monday April 24)
I am reducing it to the most important 6 IXL algebra review strands, and it will be entered as an "informational item" grade and does not factor into the final grade.
All of these are in the "Algebra 1" section: S.22, S.24, U.10, EE.1, BB.10, AA.5
