8th Grade Algebra I Weekly Agenda

Agenda: Mar 1 – 5

Class materials will be posted on Google Classroom daily. Click on the “classwork” tab then navigate to the topic for the current textbook Activity (topics are listed on the left side of the screen). At the end of each day I will post class notes, pdf versions of handouts given in class, and any other supplimental materials neede


**Please note, chrome books must be brought to school each day, fully charged. Failure to do so will result in a 5- point deduction from your homework grade (for each offense)***
