**UTENSIL REQUEST UPDAT**E: Thirty-three (!) days in and a grade 9 student finally asked to borrow a pencil....mind you, they had brought a pen to class and simply wanted to make sure that mistakes could be erased on the Number Stuffer Activity ... the streak, therefore, continues

**THREE WEEKS**: Just a fortnight-and-a-half to go until midterm marks must be submitted ... reminder to grade 9 students to make an appointment to reassess areas of difficulty from earlier in the semester ...

**UNSPOKEN RULES OF THE CLASS**: I thought that these rules would be generally understood by all of my students .... but just for the sake of clarity ...

1. Do not remove your shoes in the classroom

2. See rule one.

3. Do not put your feet on the Seat of Power

4. Do not come late for math. You'll miss some math. (Seriously, who does that??)

5. Do not fill the technology delays with country music.

**WHERE ARE WE NOW???**

Mfm1p

We have a final geometry assessment coming up on Wednesday. We have already begun the next unit concerning unit pricing. Review problems have been sent home. Notes are posted online in case anything was missed.

Mhf4U

We have taken a look at three types of rational functions. Presently, we are developing the skills necessary for solving rational equations. A reassessment for the factor theorem and polynomials will take place Wednesday after school. One period will be set aside for a reassessment attempt before midterms are written.

K Class

A long look at 2D and 3D measurement is coming to an end. We will be beginning to look at distance, speed and time calculations.

Good night now.
