Guidelines on how to submit assignments.

I will be creating new content on MWF, and I will be grading homework you have turned in on TRSat.

Unit 1: Early Number and Operations Concepts

Section 1: Standards and early number concepts July 13-14

Section 2 : CGI: ways to understand the four basic operations and how children learn them. July 14-17

Unit 1 topics to review; and an outline of what will be on the test. when you have reviewed, and are ready to take the exam, e-mail me and I will send you the exam. The exam should be treated as a closed book exam, with a 90 minute time limit (I am writing a 50 minute exam, but you may take up to 90 minutes). July 22

Unit 2: Base ten numbers, and algorithms for the basic operations
for multi-digit numbers

Section
4:
Base 10
basics, and other base numbers July
23-24(a bit short)

Section 5: Addition and subtraction algorithms (a bit long) July 27-28

Section 6: Multiplication and division algorithms (also a bit long) July 29-30

Exam: Review sheet; Some solutions for the review sheet; Instructions for taking exams July 31

Section 5: Addition and subtraction algorithms (a bit long) July 27-28

in the course) Aug 7,10-11

Exam: Review topics. Instructions for taking exams. Aug 12

13 (short)

Section 11: Percents Aug 14 (short)

Section 12: Ratios and ratio problems Aug 17-18

Section 13: Patterns and functions in algebra Aug 17-18

Section 14: Equality and equations in algebra In a fit of sanity I have decided that really we can stop before we all collapse. If you don't feel like collapsing, and you feel sad about missing out, you can see what I would have assigned here
