Some lessons you will surely pass the pretest if you are careful, and you will then get to skip that lesson. Others you will need to take your time on. Pace yourself. If you complete one or two lessons a day you will finish before the end of Summer. Don’t wait until August to start.

Things to keep in mind
Students who do not earn an 80% on a quiz will be prompted to retake. They should go to their homepage and click “Course Map” to find their lesson to re-attempt, or watch the videos again. Just click on the Instruction, Summary, or Assignment green link. Please advise students to be cautious and to take careful notes before taking a quiz (we recommend students have a composition book to take notes in).
- Warm up: Get ready for the lesson.
- Instruction: What falls between two positive integers on a number line?
- Summary: Review and connect what you learned.
- Assignment: Practice graphing positive fraction on the number line.
Pretests: If you pass a pretest you can skip the lesson.
If you answer all questions correctly, you will receive a 100% for the Pretest and you will automatically skip that whole lesson but still receive credit for it. You will then be prompted to take the next Pretest. If you miss even one question on a pretest you will be placed in the Lesson Warm-up.
A video of a teacher will tell you about the lesson you are about to learn. Take notes as they explain the lesson goals, vocabulary, and lesson question. If there is a vocabulary word you don’t know already, click on the + sign on the top right and click “Glossary” to look up the word and take notes. Click the “Next” arrow at the bottom to move on to each new section.
