When you are finished with the quiz, please take the following survey:
Extra credit for anyone who creates science-themed snow art! Might you be able to sculpt a DNA molecule? Make a snowperson family exhibiting some of the single-gene genetic traits we've talked about? Want to represent anything else science-y? GO FOR IT! (And, if you can't represent your art in 3D because the snow is too powdery, then go 2D. Email the pictures to me to claim your extra credit.)
As we have been learning in class, mean, median, mode, and range are very useful statistics for organizing small and large sets of data and then finding meaning from the data. We will have a quiz which will include Mean, Median, Mode, and Range ... AND OUTLIERS on Thursday! Make sure that you are prepared!

REFLECTION ABOUT CLASSWORK:
You must be able to follow the standard algorithm for long division, and you must be able to generate decimal quotients with this method.
Here is a page with step-by-step directions on how to do this: http://www.mathsisfun.com/long_division3.html
Here is a page with a bunch of practice worksheets with answers included.
Khan Academy also has a bunch of video tutorials and a number of practice sets.
