Students, in order for your lock to be locked after you open it and then close it, you MUST turn the dial on your lock off the last number of your combination. If you do not do this, your lock will unlock if anyone pulls on it. So remember to turn it off the last number after you close the lock. Also, as always, do NOT give your combinations to anyone. The lock is for you only.
There will be NO Math Counts this Thursday, November 6th, but we will meet the two following Thursdays, November 13th and 20th. You can still join if you are interested.
