Math IXL Assignments

This is for practice and keeping sharp. Please achieve a score of 80 or complete a minimum of 20 minutes for each category. This assignment will count as your first graded IXL assignment for the first marking period and is due by 8am on Friday, September 7, 2018.
As a bonus, once the entire assignment is completed you will have an opportunity to earn extra credit points on a future assignment. For each full hour spent on IXL’s Diagnostic Arena you can earn an extra credit point with a maximum of 10 potential extra points earned.
Please contact the main office for questions regarding IXL usernames and passwords.  If you have trouble completing a given category, please refer to videos on the topic at https://www.khanacademy.org/

Also, please note that due to summer updates, complete the targets by title not by target number. Target numbers may change.
