sending good vibes

Hey everyone!

 

I hope everyone is doing well and y'all are enjoying the occasional sunny day!

 

As we head into week three of our extended break, I thought now would be a good time to rethink and re-energize our online community.  So, I've attached and linked a video going over some important updates, shout-outs, and "assignments" for the coming week.  Below is the list of things you should do this week:

 

1.) Go to the COVID-19 Extended Break Folder and participate in our getting-to-know-you discussion.

2.) Make sure you create a Khan Academy username and password

3.) Watch the video on finding angle measures on parallel lines and transversals

4.) Complete the Schoology "assignment" (it won't be graded) on finding angle measures on parallel lines and transversals.

 

Can't wait to see you virtual in our group discussions!





We are on our way to becoming tenacious math scholars!
