Tough day in Algebra II - Assessments

Algebra II

It was a tough day in Algebra II today for many students.  It seems that some got "surprised" by the assessment and found that they weren't prepared for success.  I'd like to offer some suggestions, in no particular order:
  • The standards are posted days prior to the assessment. The standards tell you exactly what you need to know. 
    • If you don't understand what the standards mean, ask questions!
  • Other students tell you "It's hard!"  
    • Don't let them defeat you before you've even looked at the assessment yourself.
  • You are responsible for your learning!!
    • Use your class time wisely.
    • Get help before school, after school, during academic advising.
    • Use the Moodle resources.
    • Questions in the evening or on the weekend?
      • email me!
    • Start your projects immediately! 
      • The saying "The sooner I get behind, the more time I have to catch up" doesn't work!
 If there's any good news, it's that retakes are available for any and all assessments. Take heart, learn from your troubles, and move forward!
