Homework 20

HW 20!

Task 5 is to complete (and master) any six skills on IXL.com; this part of the homework is worth 12 points, while tasks 1-4 are worth a total of 8 points.  

Note: You may only complete one skill per letter (e.g. C8, D5, E9, H6, J12, and L9); you can not complete more than one from the same category (e.g. C1, C2, C3, C4, C5, and C6)

Sorry... No More IXL Extra Credit!

You can no longer earn extra credit from IXL! 

If you have already completed IXL extra credit, then you still have those points; you just cannot earn anymore, from this point on. 


From this point on, IXL will be required homework. 


This week, you must score 100 on any six (yes, 6) skills by Friday (01/30); however, you may not complete two or more from the same skill category (in other words, only one skill from A - Number Theory etc.). 


You must write the skills that you master on your homework sheet. This homework will be worth 10 points, in addition to your regular homework. 

I will be keeping track of the skills you master. For instance, if I know you have already mastered 30 skills, then I will expect you to have mastered 36 by next week. You should also keep track, with your own checklist


However, the good news is that you can still earn extra credit on Khan Academy!!!
