## Weekly Agenda

## MATH 6/7 |
## MATH 7/8 |

Week of January 16thThis week we are introducing ratios and rates. We have discussed what it means to have a relationship between two numbers (ie: student to teacher ratios). We will be practicing how to calculate unit rates the rest of this week. Next week we will be working with proportions. Weekly homework is due Friday. Happy snow day to everyone! As discussed in class, I have added one assignment in deltamath for you to complete before tomorrow. It is on equivalent ratios (like we practiced in class yesterday). The assignment wants you to get 5 correct in a row to complete the task. If you miss one you will have to start over with your five in a row. See you tomorrow in Lab 1! Week of January 8thThis week we are solely practicing concepts from last semester. We will begin our new unit on ratios, rates, and proportions next week. All students should have the Math Survival Guide pages and can be studying ahead. Our first weekly homework of the semester is due this Friday. As always, you are welcome to turn it in early, just not late! Week of December 11thThis week we are taking the Math Inventory Assessment (Round 2). We will take this Tuesday and Wednesday. We will also review and post-test for our unit on Equations and Inequalities. This unit includes: solving equations of one or more steps, solving inequalities of one or more steps, graphing inequalities on a number line, and comparing rate of change of two problems by graph or equation. Week of December 4thThis week we will be studying function tables and inequalities. Please continue to practice the following skills that are critical to equations and inequalities: combining like terms, operations with negative numbers, distributive property, and inverse operations. Next week will be the 2nd round of Math Inventory testing for math, Wednesday and Thursday. We will take our unit post test on Friday, December 15th Week of November 13thThis week we are practicing for our unit test on Thursday. - Wednesday - Students need to work on the 3 assignments due on Friday. The assignments are listed below along with the day the assignment was passed out. Students have been given at least two full class periods to work on these assignments.
- Weekly Homework - passed out on Friday of last week
- Culminating Task: Sweet Tooth Chocolate Shop - passed out on Monday
- Writing and Evaluating Expressions worksheet - passed out on Monday
- Thursday - Test Day!
- Friday - No homework! Have a safe and relaxing break. ***Now would be a great time to restock on basic school supplies!***
Week of November 6thThis week we will review substitution and translating words into algebraic expressions. We will test over the expressions unit on Thursday of next week. This is a change from previous information. We are on track and doing well so I would like to spend a little more time in this critical unit. Please study your MSG and make sure you are doing your classwork. You should always show your work but check it with a calculator. If you do not have your own calculator, I highly recommend purchasing one. - Wednesday - finish the "Unit 3: Classwork and Study Guide" packet
- Thursday - 1st period - no homework, 3rd period needs to complete the rest of problems 1-22 on the "Unit 3: Classwork and Study Guide" paper. Weekly homework due tomorrow.
- Friday -
Week of October 30th This week we will be combining like terms, learning about the algebraic properties, and using these two topics within Order of Operations. The algebraic properties we will focus on are the commutative property, associative property, and distributive property. We will add the exponent component of Order of Operations to our calculations. |
Week of January 16thThis week we are learning how to complete translations, reflections, and rotations both by graphing and manipulating the ordered pairs of the image. You may practice with transformations at the following links 2nd period - Desmos Activity 6th period - Desmos Activity Weekly Homework is due Friday. Happy snow day to everyone! As discussed in class, I have added one assignment in deltamath for you to complete before tomorrow. It is on transformations and reflections. You will have to get 5 in a row correct on each for deltamath to count your assignment complete. A couple of coordinate rules to help you with the reflection part: To reflect over y=x -> (x,y) becomes (y,x) -> Ex: (4,-6) becomes (-6,4) To reflect over y=-x -> (x,y) becomes (-y,-x) -> Ex: (4,-6) becomes (6,-4) DeltaMath username: lunch# password: lunch#bm Week of January 8th2nd period - https://quizlet.com/join/YAkVm67qF 6th period - https://quizlet.com/join/ScY7mtBGC This week we are entering the unit on transformations. This unit is centered around your ability to graph on a coordinate plane. If you are struggling with graphing on a coordinate plane please see the resources tab. There are study tools in Quizlet and DeltaMath to help you practice. You may also go to the online textbook resources. Our first weekly homework of the semester is due this Friday. Please bring your volume 1 textbook to class everyday until further notice. If you lost yours, the replacement cost is $10. Geogebra - ggbm.at/dzN68HSS Week of December 11thThis week we are taking the Math Inventory Assessment (Round 2). We will take this Tuesday and Wednesday. We will also review and post-test for our unit on Geometric Applications of Exponents. This unit includes: pythagorean theorem, distance formula, squared and cubed roots, and properties of special right triangles. You may studies these topics in Quizlet. If you have not already signed up (it's free), please do so at the following link: Join Quizlet - 2nd Period - quizlet.com/join/YAkVm67qF - 6th Period - quizlet.com/join/ScY7mtBGC Week of December 4thThis week we are working on the Pythagorean Theorem and formulas for cylinders, spheres, and cones. The concepts are intricate and will require students to pull together multiple skills they have already learned in order to solve the problems. Next week will be the 2nd round of Math Inventory testing for math, Wednesday and Thursday. We will take our unit post test on Friday, December 15th Week of November 13thThis week we are practicing for our unit test on Thursday. - Tuesday - Please study and work on the weekly homework due on Friday. The following website will help with studying cross sections: www.geogebra.org/b/XCZwsytr
- Wednesday - Homework is to continue working on the 4 assignments due this Friday. Students have had several class periods to work on the following assignments.
- Weekly Homework - passed out on Friday of last week
- Circles, Volume, Surface Area Worksheet - passed out middle of last week
- Fruit Ninja (cross sections of a cube) task - passed out on Monday and Tuesday
- Little Pig Builder Culminating Task - passed out Tuesday
- Thursday - Test Day!
- Friday - No homework! Have a safe and relaxing break. ***Now would be a great time to restock on basic school supplies!***
Week of November 6thThis week we will continue working with angle relationships and finding missing angle values. We will test the current unit at the end of next week. Please study your MSG and make sure you are doing your classwork. You should always show your work but check it with a calculator. If you do not have your own calculator, I highly recommend purchasing one. - Wednesday - no daily homework, study angle relationships, work on weekly homework.
- Thursday - Complete problems 1-4 on area of circle. Added instruction is to also find the circumference of the circle. Weekly homework is due tomorrow.
- Friday -
Week of October 30th This week we will retest for the Unit 5 assessment. All students who scored less than an 80% will be required to retest. Students with scores 80% and above can opt to retest, but it will not be required. We will begin Unit 1:Geometry. This week we will focus on cross sections of 3D shapes, composing 2D shapes with given conditions using simple tools, and properties of triangles and angles. |
