Nice work this semester, everyone!

Enjoy a much-deserved three week break. Spend some time with your family, eat great food, sleep in a bit, hang out with your friends, and recharge those batteries. I'll see you all in a few weeks!

We did a little bit of review for tomorrow's First Semester Exam in class today. Be sure to continue on your own tonight.

Looking for resources? You can find a study guide in the Document Locker, and here's a link to the review (class code: 791007) we did in class today, as well as a link to another review and all the solutions.

Please make sure you do all in your power tonight to set yourself up for success tomorrow. That includes getting a great night sleep and eating a nutritious breakfast. You need to be prepared to demonstrate your best.

If you missed class today, please be sure to complete this class work self assessment.

Today we wrapped up our look at three dimensional diagonals (which was the focus of Lesson 6.6). Great thinking all around, everyone!

We investigated three dimensional diagonals today by finding the diagonal distance from the top corner of our classroom to the opposite bottom corner. We'll share back our solutions tomorrow.

Homework: Textbook pages 369-370 (#1-3)

Tuesday 12/6

Today we examined diagonals in two dimensional shapes (Lesson 6.5) with an awesome Desmos activity!

Class code: TNU8E

We learned that you can use the Pythagorean Theorem to find unknown diagonal lengths, as long as you can find a (sometimes hidden) right triangle to help you.

Homework: Textbook pages 361-362 (#2a-g)

We worked in MATHia today, and are (hopefully!) nearing completion of the Right Triangles module.

This last module is due next week on Thursday. Are you on track to finish by the due date?

I also shared that I'd be offering partial credit to any student that goes back and finishes any incomplete modules before the end of the semester. Does your grade need a boost? It's not too late.
