Schedules of Reinforcement & Answers

I have something a little extra-special for Tuesday 7 February’s class: it is a series of quizzes and handouts that should reinforce the material and introduce new material. To help your poor old sub on Tuesday 7 February, someone should volunteer to distribute the quizzes and handouts on the schedule I’ve given them. Basically it is just start with the first one and handout the others when everyone is done. Not too hard.

You’ll need this Reinforcement Worksheet, so open it and print it. If someone is having trouble with it, ask for help.

Here are the answers to the other two worksheets:

    Mr. Marshall, I’m feeling a bit worried. It is now February. Our AP exam is in May. Yet we are still very far from completing the textbook.

  2. Mr. M. says:

    If it makes you feel better, I’ll publish our schedule of study. I have it plotted out so that we will complete the textbook before the test. Of course, with me missing a week, we’re a week behind.

    I also worry, though.
