All students have a copy of their marked work from the year to study with.  Math assessment are Tuesday and Wednesday.   Students need 2 pencils and an eraser for the test.  Grade 7 and 8 also need a calculator and math set.    Students should be reviewing their practice test tonight at home.

Students have been handed back their duotang with all their marked work from this year. (Formative and Summative).   They should be re-doing their test at home for practice to study for their final assessments.  We have done some practice test to help let the students know what sections they have forgotten and need to go back to review.  If they had trouble with fractions on the review they should spend time going over the fractions unit.

Students should be spending 20 minutes reviewing each night.

Students may also use the examples, practice test, and tutorials on the class web site and Mathletics.
