EOCT Preparation

by Amy Powers on April 24th, 2012


Parents and Students,

 The end of the semester is almost here! As we prepare for the EOCT (which counts for 20% of your grade), I want to remind you of a couple of things:

  • Check out the Class Handouts page to review all the notes we’ve taken from the semester
  • Check out the Accelerated Math 1 Units page to look over all the topics you’ve learned this semester
  • Do the practice questions in the EOCT Study Guide located under Links (Blogroll)
  • Take practice tests on USA Test Prep
  • Watch math videos (located under Links) to review concepts you’re weak on
  • Ask me any questions you have so that you can succeed on the Math 1 EOCT!

Parents, please encourage your child to study a little bit every night.  The EOCT is May 7th and 8th

I have had an amazing semester with all of you! You guys are awesome and I know you’ll do great on the EOCT! 🙂
