We are pretty much finished the unit in math and are ready for the test, but with Easter Break already here, parent-teacher interviews, a short week, we are better off waiting until after Easter to do the test.
But.... because of our change up in learning and the like, time is not on our side. So we will be starting the next unit before we do the test. I don't want to, but it is in our best interest to do so.
Don't worry, I will go back and review before the test. Also, check out our Google Classroom for a bunch of notes, videos, and review items for the unit!

We will be doing the first part (Multiple Choice) of the Unit 5 in-class assignment on Wednesday. You will have the ENTIRE class to do them and I will have the due time later than the end of class so that if you need some extra time, I can give you some just like if we were in school. Either during the first part of lunch or a bit of time after school depending on when class is. I am pretty sure that will be more than enough time.
Be sure that you submit EXACTLY the answers you want to submit!
We will do the second part in school either on Thursday or Friday.
