We will have a quiz in class on Monday, November 8.
The topics covered in the quiz are taken from the in-class assignment we've worked on this week.
1)variables and relationships
-independent, dependent and controlled variables
2)significant digits
3)Calculating with Appropriate Precision
*remember the rules: When you add or subtract your answer can only have the same number of decimal places as the number with the smallest amount of decimal places in the question. When you divide or multiply your answer can only have the same number of significant digits asn the number with the smallest number of significant digits in the question.
4)Measures of central tendency - mean, median, mode, range, outliers
5)Stem and Leaf Plots
If you have any questions on these topics come see me at lunch time today or Monday.
If you are absent for the quiz on Monday you will write Tuesday at 12:10.

We have had some troubles following and remembering the rules I have in my class. I will put a poster up in class as a reminder, and this note here should be helpful too. Remember, if you break my rules there are consequences!
The 5 P's
1. Be Polite (no cursing, talking back, or being rude)
2. Be Punctual (Be on time for class! Break time is for going to the bathroom, getting a drink, and going to your locker, not for socializing)
3. Be Present (you need to be here, physically and mentally in order to be successful in my class. You MUST work!)
4. Be Patient (DO NOT talk while I'm talking)
5. Be Prepared (Bring your things. You need to have a pencil, paper, and a calculator for my class.)
I know that you all can follow these rules. The minute you walk into my classroom each day you are agreeing to them.

A reminder that your inclass assignment is due on Monday at the beginning of class. Please ensure that you are finished at this time. I will deduct 10% per day that it is late!

Hi everyone,
I am very excited to be a part of Bonar Law, although I know you all will miss Ms. Sutherland until she comes back next fall. I know things are a little different now that I'm in class, but in time I'm sure you will adjust. I promised you all in class that I would only give homework twice a week (as Ms. Sutherland did). You will regularly be getting in-class assignments from me that I will give you PLENTY of time to complete during class time. I will give you a full review period before each Unit Test. I can't wait to watch you all grow and learn more about the exciting world of Math!
