Our midterm fell into chaos at the end with some interestingly timed winter storms. One of my daily classes didn't meet for a week straight! We're finally back on track, though, and cruising toward Parent-Teacher Conferences on March 7th.
This semester's PreCalc is a breath of fresh air after a rocky first semester crew. High grades, increased engagement in class, and a more stable foundation in prerequisite concepts has led us to coast through the first two units with time to spare. The number of kids willing to ask that quick question of clarification on Remind or outside of class really does make a huge difference!
Algebra is a very small crew of only 10 students, making our way through exponents and review of expressions/equations. Everyone participates (willingly or not) and is getting more comfortable every day with discussing their work and thought process. As we always say in class, "Volunteer or get drafted!" All students take their turn at the board, correcting mistakes, and learning that it is ok to goof. It only makes us better in the long run!
Game Club has been lazily plugging along on Thursday afternoons, with numbers usually below 12-15 due to the plethora of other activities and... kids getting jobs! I definitely won't complain about the latter. We will be hosting a free MS-HS Magic: The Gathering event in a few weeks, too.
Keep chugging along, folks. Seize the carp!
