I am sad that the ITV didn't work :(
I have made you a video review of CGI addition and subtraction problem types for anyone who's having trouble with the quiz. I'll fold other stuff into next week's lessons.

GCI lessons 6-8
lessons 6 and 7 have a D2L quiz associated with them.  There is also a longer CGI-type of problems identification quiz here that you may retake multiple times.  Your score on this quiz will be your highest score as of end of the day on the 29th.
Lesson 8 has a homework assignment associated with it, which is due end of the day on the 30th.
Sept 30-Oct 6  

CGI lessons 9 and 10.  Lessons are ready now.  D2L quizzes are ready too. 
The sequence and problem solving assignments are looking uneven, so there may be a make-up lesson on some of those topics coming later in the week.

Nov 18-24 Happy Thanksgiving!
No meeting this week. If you have questions, please e-mail
The assignments are not due until the Monday after Thanksgiving, so you can juggle your schedule in whatever way seems best to you.
Be aware that the video lessons require you to install new software, so it's probably best to not leave that until the very last minute, so you can get help if something doesn't work right the first time.
Nov 25-Dec 1 Thurs, Nov 29 Online Lesson 3.6, 3.7 and 3.8. One D2L quiz (3.8) and one assignment (3.7). All quizzes and assignments for this unit must be done before Dec. 8 There is also a set of practice problems for the exam. I will be happy to show how to answer any of those practice problems during Thursday's online Q and A room (optional), but you will need to come with specific questions about those problems.
Dec 2-8 Saturday Dec 8 at UW-RF Test on base ten with addition and subtraction. Work on multiplication and division.
