There are several types of problems your student sees when doing the classwork and the homework. The classwork problems have been designed to encourage students to work together with their teammates to solve interesting and challenging problems (with teacher support). At times, these problems require students to use previous learning. Some problems will require the use of manipulatives, such as blocks, number cubes, Algebra Tiles, or models to help develop understanding. Other problems introduce students to new ideas. All of the problems have been carefully constructed to further a student’s understanding of mathematics.
Planning in advance for possible impacts will go a long way toward keeping your family safe when a tropical storm or hurricane affects your area. Be prepared before the hurricane season begins by having a family disaster plan, as well as an emergency supply kit. Review and update your family disaster plan prior to each season. When a storm threatens, the National Hurricane Center, together with your local National Weather Service forecast office, will issue Tropical Storm and Hurricane Watches and Warnings in plenty of time for you to prepare for a storm. Watches are issued 48 hours in advance of the time damaging winds are possible within the specified area. Warnings are issued 36 hours prior to the time when damaging winds are expected . Remain informed of possible threats throughout the season, and put your plan into action when the time comes. Following this advice will help keep you and your family weather-safe.
