Today in class we went over the Classroom Expectations and Consequences for the class. I also went over the supplies you need. In case you didn't write them down or lost your paper, below are those supplies.
Spiral Notebook (contains graph paper not lined paper)
Textbook->Big Ideas Math Algebra 1
You also got your first assignment for the class. It will be due this Friday. The assignment is called Mathography. You will be writing me a letter based on the handout I passed out today. I would like the letter to be typed on the computer, not handwritten. If this presents a problem for you, please come talk to me. If you would like to email me your assignment you may do so. My school email is firstname.lastname@example.org. In your email, please make sure you tell me who you are (first and last name. When you complete this assignment, please make sure it is in the format of a letter. Below is a copy of the Mathography handout.
For the last part of class you began to take an assessment so that I can get a sense of some things you may or may not know so I know how to start instruction next week.. Don't worry if you don't know how to do some of the problems, this doesn't count for a grade. We will finish taking the assessment tomorrow. Thank you for a great first day!
