Ferb and Quiz Bowl Qs

Ferb was due on Friday, but here is a link to his coordinate points if you need them.  Any sheet of graph paper will do as long as you draw a coordinate plane on it.

Quiz Bowl questions are optional this time, but here is a link to them!  You may write as many as you want in each category and/or come up with your own selection of potpourri.  Please turn them in by Wednesday if you would like them considered for the final round.  Have fun!

Homework for Wednesday, May 17

Assignment: Real Life Negatives C
*Finn, do not attempt this stunt at home, it's too dangerous.  Wait until you receive specific instructions from me. ;-)
We went over this ad nauseam in class today: you MUST write the correct equation in the order it is shown before solving.  In fact, I didn't offer this in class, but if you want to write it as a variable equation that's okay too.  Simply assign each number a variable letter and put that on the equation line.  This earns one point per equation.
Having the correct solution is the second part.
Knowing how to set up an equation from verbal (written) information is the skill we're working on, eh?
Due Thursday
