Happy holidays!

Dear Parents (and students),

Image result for christmas geometryI hope that everyone has had a good start to their break.  It is snowing in Chicagoland as I write this.  We will have a white Christmas!

I wanted to remind all that there is no math homework assigned for the break, but students may certainly keep checking in with IXL.  It is a great thing to do if your middle schooler is bored or if you are trapped in an airport (with a Wi-Fi connection).

If you are travelling, take advantage of the many opportunities to use math--estimating restaurant bills, arrival times, exchange rates, etc.  Talk with your son or daughter about how you are using mathematical thinking in different situations.

If your family celebrates Christmas, then I wish you a very merry one.  I wish everyone a happy and healthy 2018!

Mr. Hughes
