Continued working on Menu Math Assignment. Today you are going to be creating your own Menu based on the one we looked at yesterday. On the blank white paper I passed out you are going to make a menu. On the menu you are going to put the name of the restaurant. You need to have at least 7 food items with prices. There should be at least 5 problems on the menu using variables. Do not put the answers on the menu. Make sure the menu is colorful. On the index card I provided, please put down the answers only to the problems you put on your menu. On lined paper that you need to provide you need to solve the problems you created on your menu showing your work. Below is a rubric for this assignment.
Starting talking about the Menu Math Assignment today. Will continue with this tomorrow in class. By now you should have gotten your
textbooks through your p.e. class. If you still have not gotten your
textbooks. Let me know. Remember you do not need to bring your math textbooks to school because I have a class set. Please cover your textbooks so they don't get damaged.
-Gave out a Pre-Course Test today in class. This is for me to see what you know and don't know and to get your brains thinking about math again after the long Summer Break. This doesn't count for a grade.
Collected the Mathography assignment today. If you didn't turn it in, please turn it in next week. Remember this is your first homework assignment. It does count for a grade.
