Give students progress report handouts from Easy Grade Pro.
Begin unit 4B
This is a review. Most of the material was covered in chapter 3.
Explain "My geometric approach."
Homework review. Exercises 9 30 pages 246  247.

Review counts as classwork.
"My geometric approach" is an exercise in which the students work a problem on a new concept. They use prior knowledge to figure out how to solve the problem. They write their thought processes on one side of the paper and solve the problem on the other."
See: Thinking Through Mathematics, by Edward A silver, Jeremy Kilpatrick, and Beth Schelsinger.
