Hey everyone! I am going to have the assignment due on Thursday, Feb 24, instead of Wednesday, Feb 23. Only thing is that late assignments will not be passed back before the test which is on Tuesday, March 1 the week after. This is because I will be passing them back on Friday. Then there is a PL day on Monday, which means I won't see you after Friday until the day of the test. We will get into Percent early next week!
If you are having trouble, make sure you put in the time. Check out the videos in the Google Classroom! This is the unit this year that will likely require the extra effort.
