Parents and students,
The following is an ongoing list of the entries for the present -week grading period. Each of these entries should be kept in the math section of the binder at all times. If you are missing an entry, you should redo it if it cannot be found. Parents-- all quizzes and tests are entries so these are kept here as well.  Checking a student's agenda as well as checking this list against the binder itself are both great ways to stay on top of things.

then put the correct measurements where they belong.   By getting our pictures drawn the same way, we can be more sure
to set up the proportion correctly.
