Final Defense Opportunity for the School Year
Students will not have math homework assigned during state testing (May 9-19). This is the perfect time to prepare for the final math Defense of the school year!
Final Defense Date: Tues/Wed, May 30 or 31 (Defenses will be taken during math class time.)
Preparing for the Defense:
□ Attend at least one Thursday PAWs session in the next few weeks (MANDATORY) to pick up a Defense form and make a plan for practicing.
□ Go over your original test and identify mistakes that were made. Ask for help on problems that you are still unsure about.
□ Practice the types of problems that you missed on the original test. Do this by:
- re-doing old homework handouts that you can print from this website.
- Asking Mrs. B. to print you another copy of the original test so you can try it again.
- doing a lot of online practice like the problems on the Khan Academy site below. Choose the section(s) that relate to the concepts you are studying.
NOTE: Students may choose which concept category to defend based on their test scores from this semester (CC5 through CC9). Students may only take one Defense on Tues/Wed, May 30 or 31 and this will be the only day that CC9 will be offered.
If a student wants to take a second Defense (other than CC9) before the end of the school year, then they should reach out to me and request another date for the second Defense. This second Defense will likely be scheduled to be taken after school during the week of May 22-25.
