    ixl: I carefully select these skills based on what we are studying in class.  Students are to work on these skills as they are assigned each week. They are meant as extra practice to help achieve mastery BEFORE taking math chapter tests and Quarterly Standards Mastery Assessments (QSMA).  Students need to achieve 80% or higher on each assigned skill to receive full credit (100%) each week. Students achieving 100% on every skill will earn extra credit (105%). An ixl participation grade will be taken at the end of each week for that week's assigned skills. All assigned ixl skills must be completed to 80% or higher to attend the Miller Money Auction in December and May; F2F class only, as the auction is conducted in class.

     

    I post the upcoming skills each Friday which means we have not yet covered those skills in class.  Those interested can get an idea of what will be covered in class the next week.  The students will be given time in class to complete them, but I understand that students work at different speeds and may want to work on them at home as well.  Many skills are quickly learned with the ixl tutorial, but if your child is frustrated, please hold off on that skill until we have covered it in class. I do not want the students practicing skills incorrectly, and I need to assist the students as needed.  Thank you for your help.  :)

     

    **This Week's Math Skills due Friday for grading:  D.33, D.39, D.44, E.3, E.4       (Quarter 2 Math Skills Due: D.29, D.30, D.31, D.32, D.35)
