Math – Tomorrow we will be having a quiz on factors, multiples, prime and composite numbers. We had a pre-test today, and many of the students need to look over their red duotangs as some of the results on this practice quiz were not strong. Students should pay special attention to reviewing prime numbers and divisibility rules.

We will continue working to improve these before they submit them for a formal mark. We will also be starting a second writing assignment. It will be a newspaper article on Terry Fox.
