Students NEED A CALCULATOR (one that will work for pre-algebra/algebra).
There is a Texas Instrument TI-30Xa at Walmart for under $10. It has fractions, exponents, cube root, etc. Otherwise students are going to be spending too much time on computation within their problems when some do not know their math facts at the MS level. I have only a few calculators students may borrow, but I need them for my other classes. PLEASE GET ONE ASAP. Thank you!
8th - Finished Test; we started lesson on understanding slope
7th - Finished Test; p. 34 Problem solving with fractions/mixed numbers
6th - Finished ws on LCM & GCF & Prime Factor Tree; we started lesson on dividing by a decimal number.
