Feb.21- blog post

Alright well today we had early dismissal, and Mr. Max skipped mental math, and something he wanted to draw our attention to seeing how time was stressed. So we went straight to correcting, and working with problems troubling the students. Also it was mentioned that the test review will be tomorrow.
A few reminders:
  • Formula sheet(cheat sheet) can be one side of a 8.5*11 sheet of paper, and must be made entirely by you.

  • Look at Exercise #8 and try it out.

  • And of course study study study

With the test coming up I figured I should try and offer as much assistance as possible with some links and study ideas.


And to lighten the learning I am gonna post a joke too:) Hope it's not inappropriate or anything.

President Bush's morning security briefing is wrapping up. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld is concluding his part and says, "Finally, three Brazilian soldiers were killed yesterday near Baghdad."
"OH MY GOD!" shrieks Bush, and he buries his head in his hands for a seemingly interminable 30 seconds. Stunned at the unexpected display of emotion, the President's staff sits speechless, not sure how to react. Finally, Bush looks up and asks Rumsfeld, "How many is a Brazilian?"

hey, thanks for doing a good job, thanks for the links to studying for math tests not sure if i would use them myself but its a great idea anyways. the last link was also quite good even though we had already taken notes on it. and by the way i thought the joke was decently good.
i'm also interested in checking out the post on what was all corrected yesterday. thanks again

*Steph*, Great Stuff...I'm not sure if your classmates know how lucky they are to have you fishing around on the web for the great stuff you found. I especially thought that the stuff from Texas A & M university on how to study was great (even if it's intended audience is American college students...)

The joke is fine, although you've probably alerted the American secret service to the presence of our blog, but since Rumsfeld is no longer Defence Secretary, maybe they won't notice a high school math class blog...

On a very minor note (and you can correct this at your leisure), and this is directed at the whole class, I need to encourage you all to run your scribe posts through a spell-checker prior to posting, please... let me know if you need help.

Nice work, *Steph*, you set the bar pretty high, which is a good thing.
