Below is a list of suggested notes and assignments for the remaining time that we will be out of school. Please check back regularly for updates and additional resources. All suggested assignments can be submitted on Teams for feedback. Please feel free to email me with any questions or concerns. 


I will be updating material on GAS LAWS, SOLUTIONS, and DATA ANALYSIS. Please work through the material at your own pace. I will be continually updating the material with digital lessons (on YouTube/OneNote). Please take a look at my Online Learning Overview video posted below for more details.
