Weekly Agenda and Homework

This page lists the materials we have covered for the applicable week, including any assignments or assesmments.

The homework listed for CMP2 Math references the section while ACE stands for Applications, Connections, Extensions. The homework question can be found in the ACE section after the investigation and I have the page numbers listed for easy reference. Please pay attention to the correct unit listed at the bottom of the pages as each unit "resets" the page numbers.

The Exploratory Math class uses a student edition Weekly Essentials & Problem Solver "Yellow Covered" handbook they can write in. The handbook is broke into two sections: Week-by-Week Essentials and Problem Solver Challenges. In the Problem Solver Challenges section, there is a four-step method for problem solving we follow along with ten types of problem solving strategies the students can use. Various worksheets are handed out to supplement the material as necessary.
