There are 6 Columns under our schedule. The first shows you the date. The second tells you if homework is due that day. The third column tells what we did in class. The fourth column tells you if homework is assigned that day. The fifth column is where I will put copies of any worksheets, labs, powerpoints, notes, important websites, etc. for that day. The sixth column will be where our Getting Started opening questions are for each day.
