Did you lose your RPJ? Go into the section that coincides with the pages that are missing. The second option on the left hand menu should be the RPJ pages for that section. Open and print, or just copy the problem onto notebook paper.

Need help to complete your homework?

  • Go into the correct chapter and section that matches the RPJ page of homework. Scroll past the activity to the examples (this is usually the 3rd page in the section). Find the example in the textbook that is similar to your homework problem.
  • Click on the lesson tutorials in the section—these are videos that show examples different from the ones on the textbook pages and the problems are worked out step-by-step with a teacher voice over explaining the whole time. Sometimes watching these more than once helps.
  • If these don’t work, go back to your math notebook and look for notes or worksheets to help you---OR---go to YouTube and type in key vocabulary from the section.
  • Still stuck? Make plans to come in at lunch or after school the next day for help.
