Friday 10/28

Today you worked in MATHia and are hopefully nearing the finish line on this current module. Two weeks to go!

Here is this week's extra credit:

Thursday 10/27

Today we finished our Chapter 3 test and worked on MATHia. 

Speaking of MATHia, are you on pace to finish the Functions & Linear Models module by November 11th? Since today is a minimum day it is a perfect opportunity to spend some extra time with MATHia at home if you're a bit behind.

Wednesday 10/19

Today we finished Lesson 3.5 and can now determine the 
y-intercept from a graph, a table, a context, and an equation.

Homework: Textbook pages 192-194 (Problem 6)

Tuesday HW Solutions: Determining Y-Intercepts answer key

Tuesday, October 18, 2016

Tuesday 10/18

Today we learned how to find the y-intercept in a graph, table, context, and equation in Lesson 3.5. We did the first half of the lesson and will finish the rest tomorrow.

Homework: Determining Y-Intercepts worksheet

Monday 10/17

Today we finished Common Assessment #2 and worked on MATHia.

Tomorrow we will jump back into Chapter 3!

Homework: none

Friday, October 14, 2016

Friday 10/14

Today we took Common Assessment #2. We will finish up on Monday.

Have an AWESOME weekend!

Thursday 10/13

We spent the class period investigating the rate of change from an equation with an awesome Desmos activity!

Tomorrow is Common Assessment #2!

Homework: Review for Common Assessment 

Wednesday HW Solutions: Slope from Equations worksheet answer key

Wednesday 10/12

Today we learned how to find the slope (also known as rate of change) from an equation in Lesson 3.4. We learned that when an equation is written in slope-intercept form, the coefficient in front of the variable x represents the slope. To find the slope, all we have to do is rewrite any equation in slope-intercept form!

Homework: Slope from Equations Worksheet

Tuesday HW Solutions: Rate of Change worksheet answer key

Tuesday 10/11

Today we tackled Lesson 3.3, which focused our attention on finding the rate of change and unit rate from a context.

We learned that there's not a set formula or method to solving these - it's all about thinking critically, evaluating what you'd need to know to answer the question, and using the clues given to determine the rate.

Homework: Rates of Change worksheet (Problems B & D)

Monday, October 10, 2016

Monday 10/10

Today we continued our look at finding the rate of change and unit rate from a table with Lesson 3.2. We're now proficient with both informal and formal methods.

Sometimes, some students get tripped up not with the rate of change methods, but in adding and subtracting positive and negative numbers. If you need to brush up on those skills, use the daily practice links at the side to become an integer master!

Homework: Textbook page 155 #1c & 1d
