EOCT Preparation

by Amy Powers on April 24th, 2012

Upcoming Events

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 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! 🙂

This week we are learning the properties of Quadrilaterals.  On the Class Handouts page, I have posted pictures of the flash cards that were made in class along with a properties chart. 

Parents, please make sure your child is studying these properties EVERY NIGHT!

If your child is struggling, I have a Math 1 ELT group that they can come to (ELT is the 30 minutes before 4th block).

Looking forward to good grades on Tuesday! 🙂
