I hope you and your families are all feeling healthy and safe.  I miss you all so much and I'm so sad that we won't get to finish such a strong year.  We don't know exactly what the expectations will be between now and August, but I'll update here and on Twitter (@pi_siminger) as I learn more information.  Please email or tweet me if you need anything at all.  If you don't hear from me within a day, try again - sometimes when I email you, the message gets returned for some reason.  

I have updated the document I showed you a few weeks ago - the one that has ixl practice suggestions and videos for each topic we've covered.  You can find this document in the Files and Documents tab of this web page.  I'll update some additional useful links and other practice for you this week.

I hope I get to see you soon, but while you're home, please make sure you're nice to your families, you go outside every day, teach someone something you learned in math class this year (there was SO MUCH!), and do something nice for someone every day!

Love you all so much,
Mrs. Eisiminger

Play Integer War today!  You'll need a deck of playing cards and an opponent (virtual or in-person; sibling, friend, family member).  Red cards are negative integers, black cards are positive integers.  Aces are worth one point and K,Q,J are worth ten points (positive or negative).  The rules are the same as regular War - split the deck of cards in half, each lay one card at a time, highest value wins.  Good luck!
