Homework for Wednesday, March 29

Assignment: Test Corrections
For clarification:
*These corrections are an assignment of their own.  You receive credit based on the number of correct corrections that you make from all problems you missed on YOUR original test.
*It is in your best interest to identify and understand your mistakes, hence that's what we're doing.
*These corrections will not change your actual test score.  That would need to be done via "retesting."
*Retests are done to show that you have learned the material and can demonstrate that knowledge in test form.  You retest by section and will receive the better FULL CREDIT score (original or retest) for your final grade added to the other sections.
*Retest dates will be given after spring break.
Test Corrections are Due Thursday

Homework for Thursday, March 23

Assignment: Flower Power - Link!
 *the name of this assignment is not the actual name of the worksheet
Use the table and proportions to organize your work.
There are only 7 questions on this page, but three of them are complex!  Take your time, think about them carefully, and don't be afraid when you realize they're not simple.  Work through it until you understand what you are doing.
#5 and #6: These are two-step problems.  We went over these in class ... figure out what you know, use your labels, and don't expect to get the answer in one step.
#7: There is no redo option for this question. Both parts, the "yes" or "no" and the "why" or "why not" must be completely explained. I will be picky about your reasoning!
Due Friday

Homework for Wednesday, March 15

Assignment: Percentage Boxes Worksheet
I didn't give you a lot of direction for this worksheet, but it's merely a few steps more than we did in class today.  Can you color the given grid in the ratios given?  (Please use actual color)
This will require equivalent ratios ... moving to conversions of fractions, percents, and decimals.
Yep, we've covered a lot and now you are putting it together.  ;-)
Due Thursday

It's your first math homework for the spring trimester!

Assignment: Percents and Proportions - verbal equations
As noted on the assignment sheet (and stressed in class today) ALL proportions must be shown along with your work. Remember, the proportion is your organizational tool and the arithmetic is how you solve it.  You might note that some of these answers won't be what you might think at first ... so setting it up correctly will allow you to trust your answer.  That IS the point!
Due Tuesday (yes, we will have math tomorrow)
