With my geometry classes, we're starting similar triangles-- ratio, proportion, and then getting to Trig. So my geometry kids will be very happy; in about 2 weeks, they're FINALLY going to be able to use calculators in class!!! Of course, that means I'm going to spend a day or two on some of the functions of the calculator. My Algebra kids are going to be starting with Quadratic Equations. They're pretty good with factoring, so it should be a fairly easy start. My SAT prep kids will go over any questions they had on the practice test they took just before Christmas. Thursday of next week is Parent-Student-Teacher conferences after last week's report cards. I had only one failure, and requested to see 6 or 7 D's as well. But I expect to have a lot of the Algebra kids show up, just so the parents can meet me. I suppose that in the next day or so I should empty out my book bag, shouldn't I??? Monday is "A" day in our cycle, the day when my only free period is lunch. Nothing like hitting the ground running.
