NTI Week 2

March 26th

Good morning!

I hope everybody is doing ok out there! Most people are getting into a good rhythm with getting their math work turned in one way or another. 

Make sure you send me any work you have completed for this second week of NTI by Friday.  I have to put in grades every week still and will updating those starting tomorrow afternoon.

Let me know if you have any questions! Enjoy the weather today!

March 23rd

Good morning everybody! 

I want to start by clearing up some confusion.  I am asking that every student work for about 25-30 minutes every school day during this NTI time.  I understand that some students will be able to finish all of the work assigned in that amount of time but most will not.  In order to keep everybody in the same place though I will send out new work each week for students to work on.

If students did not complete their packet from last week but still sent me pictures of their work from every day then they have received their work ethic credit from last week and can just skip ahead to this weeks packet.  

The new packet is available under the documents tab and the new Khan Academy work has been assigned online.  

Let me know if you have any questions or concerns! 

Have a great day!

NTI Week 1

March 19th

Good morning parents and students.  Today is Thursday and I wanted to point out a few items for the next two days.

1.)  The work that is assigned on Khan Academy is due by tomorrow (Friday) at midnight.  I had to choose a due date for this assignment when it was created and I believe that one week should be enough time to finish (or get close to finishing) those assignments.

2.)  if you have been working on the packet please continue to send me pictures of your work.  I am checking your work as you send those pictures in so be looking for emails back from me on things that you should correct or take a second look at to fix some of the small mistakes that I am seeing.

3.)  I am going to put in a work ethic grade for the students who have been submitting work to me either on Khan or from the area packet (remember that you only need to be working on one or the other, not both...unless you wanted to or have already finished one).  If I have not received work from you then I cannot give you work ethic points.  Today is technically the 3rd day of NTI so I should have about 1 to 1.5 hours worth of work from you.

Remember that you are always welcome to email me whenever you have questions or concerns.  I am checking my email throughout the day but I am home with my kids right now so I might not get back to you right away but hopefully it is within an hour or two.

Have a great day!

March 17th

Nice work today! I have been receiving pictures of student work and updates through Khan academy from everybody getting their work done for the day! Keep it up tomorrow! Remember, about 25 minutes of math practice each day is what you should be aiming for!

It seems like people are working through the area packet in different orders so I am posting example problems from several pages in the photo gallery on my web page.  

Please continue to let me know if you have any questions and remember I am working as quickly as I can to respond to everybody's emails.

Check in tomorrow!

March 16th  

Hi everybody.  I just wanted to let you know that I just added several links to my web page to help with area of parallelograms (rectangles), triangles and circles. I also added a photo to my photo gallery that gives the first two problems worked out for the packet work if that is what you are choosing to do.  

I hope everybody is staying safe and healthy out there.  Email me if you need anything or have any questions.  Remember that tomorrow is the first official day of NTI.  Get 20-30 minutes of good practice in and if you are working on the packet make sure you send me a photo of your work.

Talk to you tomorrow!

March 15th

I have already received several students work via email and I have been tracking students work on Khan Academy.  Nice job to everybody that has started already.

Remember that I am not expecting anybody to start work until Tuesday 3/17 unless you want to start early.  I am also suggesting 20-30 minutes each day either on Khan Academy or the packet.

If you are doing the packet then try to start on page 54 by finding the area of Parallelograms and Triangles.

If you are wanting to get signed in to Khan Academy and still need help figuring that out email me and let me know.

I will post again here soon.  Let me know if you need me!

Stay safe everyone.
