Ch. 9 Results & Moving Forward

The class split into two distinct groups on the Ch. 9 (Trig) test - those that can and those that can't. And the split has very little to do with natural ability, it's simply a measure of how much effort people are putting in. Those that continue to talk during class, goof off when working in groups, and never ask for help are getting Ds and Es. Everyone else is doing just fine.

Reassessments on Ch. 9 are due by Monday, March 5th. You must provide evidence of your progress if you hope to take a reassessment quiz (show me that you're not wasting my time).

Ch. 6 is about polygons in general and quadrilaterals in particular. The material isn't any harder or easier than anything we've encountered so far this year. If you choose to pay attention, take detailed notes, ask questions and challenge yourself, you'll do just fine. If not, you're going to quickly find yourself in a hole that becomes too deep to dig out of before June.
