# Math Test Tomorrow

It’s that time again . . . unit 9 math test.  Today we completed a review in class of the material on tomorrow’s test.  Unit 9 focused on fractions, decimals and percents.  To prepare for a math test we need to PRACTICE.  Students have the OPPORTUNITY to practice for their test and earn bonus points (5 points!).  They have two options to practice:

1. Make a practice test with 20 problems (Must contain a variety of problems).  The mathboxes and journal pages are a great place to find math problems for a practice test.  Students must complete the practice test and return it tomorrow to receive the bonus points.

2. Play Unit 9 Jeopardy and keep track of your work on a 4×5 grid.  See directions below.
