We love hearing the fascinating things you are curious about and are willing to share each week! Keep it up & pick something to include on your HW Checklist.

Also, remember to think about these questions:

  • What is the difference between knowledge and opinion? Knowledge and belief?
  • Knowledge challenge:
    • In your notebooks right down a statement that you think is an opinion.
    • Then write down a statement that you think is a belief.



How is your personal study going? Do you have a regular routine? Have you set a goal to finish a specific section? Or do you change it up a little each week?

Share something you’ve learned in both your Core Book and Math on your Homework Checklist!
