It is Friday, the 13th! We have a wacky schedule for the next few weeks, with conferences on Thursday and Friday next week and the end of the hexter (no regular classes) Thursday and Friday the following week.
Since we have 40 min periods on Fridays, I decided to have the students begin programming, but my plan is that they will do most of the programming as homework assignments and we will go back to working on unit 2 in class. I may make our Friday shorter periods homework (unit 3) help time if they struggle with their programs. My goal is to be through unit 4 by the end of the semester, allowing plenty of time to work on the AP exam preparation next semester.
