Pass off your Times Tables

Posted by rrippon on Oct 3, 2018

Pass off your times tables.  This will make your math homework easier!  Once you have passed them off, the first time you beat your record this quarter you will earn 10 pts. extra credit!  This activity will be put on your grade Fri. Oct. 5.  You still have until the end of the quarter to pass off for full credit.
