What’s Happening in Math – Week of 1/18/16

Algebra – This week we are starting Chapter 3-1, Graphing Linear Functions. Students will learn how to graph linear equations using the x and y intercepts, interpret x and y intercepts, and learn how to convert equations from standard form to slope intercept form.

7th Pre-Algebra (2nd period) – This week we are starting Chapter 5-1 Perimeter and Area and Chapter 5-2 Solving Equations with Variables on Both Sides. Students will use equations to solve area and perimeter problems.

8th Pre-Algebra – Continuing with our Geometry unit, we are moving to lesson 11-1 about Angle and Line Relationships. Students will learn about different angles with parallel lines and a transversal, as well as write equations to solve for missing angles. Students will take a quiz on Friday on 11-1 and will also see a few problems about dilations on this quiz from lesson 6-8.

7th Pre-Algebra (4th period) – As of last week, too many students still struggled with the concepts in 4-1 and 4-2 (the distributive property and simplifying algebraic expressions). Encourage your child to study at home. We are spending 3 more days working on these concepts this week. Students will be quizzed on Thursday.
