Chapter 7 is almost finished! We will be testing this chapter on Friday. Please help your child prepare. We covered the Percent Equation, the Percent Proportion, Percent of Change, Sales Tax, Discounts, and tomorrow we will close the chapter with Simple Interest.
If your child is unable to complete any of my online videos and questions, (www.mattzigner.com/homework) please send in a note. I will then allow them to complete the assignment in my room at the beginning of class on one of my spare laptops.
On a TOTALLY random closing note.....Did you know that the U.S.A. is one of only 3 countries that still use the "Customary Measurement System"? Every one else is using the Metric System (grams, meters, liters). I really wish we would switch over! Once you get used to it, you find it makes much more sense than the feet inches, yards, miles, pounds, ounces, cups, pints, and quarts that we currently use.
