3D Cram Session

This week will be the last week of new material before we start reviewing for finals. This week is also our week of EOC testing. So, I won't see my 9th graders at all, and I still want to refresh their memories on volumes and surface areas of 3D objects. Sheesh, I have to manage my time better next year and remember that we have more "wasted" weeks than I planned for. Let's see 6-8 days of material crammed in 2 block days, 2 of which I don't see them. Quality instruction. What makes me not TOO worried is that they've seen it before (not that it's immediately accessible in their memories), and they're hard working and will do what I ask via e-mail.

Anyway, my vision is to "teach" them via e-mail and online quizzes. Here's the formula sheet they'll paste in their notebooks:

Now I'll get to use to make some "homework" quizzes I can check virtually.


  1. those sheets are pretty handy. I might use them next year...if you don't mind.

  2. You are more than welcome to.
