BTTF 2016 Guide

As you plan your final project, make sure that it will meet all the requirements listed in the project guide:

  1. Clearly relates what contributions your figure made.
  2. Clearly relates the dangers posed by the problem you want to solve.
  3. Clearly relates at least one current attempt to solve the problem.
  4. Clearly relates the unique skills your figure may use to solve the problem.

Recovering from the last test…

Several of you need to recover from the last test. Tutoring is available every morning before school and strongly encouraged. Don’t forget to sign in for credit for tutoring. Remember to accumulate time in tutoring before the retest. You may also want to work on problems at home.

I am attaching a copy of the exam in case you need to review questions. You might also refer to the review questions and solutions that were posted last week.

Math Test Scores are Posted

7th graders took the first test of the 6 weeks today (covering material from the end of the previous 6 weeks). Scores range from perfect (a near record number of perfect scores) to zero. Those students who scored below 80 will need to have their test papers signed by a parent and arrange for at least 1 day of tutoring per 20 points below 100—For example, a student scoring a 40 would need to attend at least 3 tutoring sessions. Tutoring is available EVERY morning from 8:00 until 8:30 and most Tuesday through Thursday afternoons until 4:05. Once you have returned the signed test and arranged for tutoring, you may schedule a retest.

This test was very straightforward with no tricks or surprises. I hope it was a wake-up call to many of you that you may need to study for tests rather than just propping your eyes open during class.
