Unit 6 Part I Test has been graded and is posted on ParentVue.  We returned and reviewed the tests today.

We’ve begun learning how to apply what we know about writing linear equations in order to make conjectures on scatterplots by creating a line of best fit.

HW:  LINE OF BEST FIT WORKSHEET:  1st and 2nd period use graph paper with homework or access the sheet attached that goes with the homework.Line-of-Best-Fit-Practice-24ysxp2

Please read below about important meeting involving rising 9th graders!!

Parents/Guardians of rising 9th graders (Walton Class of 2022) are invited to attend Walton High School’s Rising 9th Grade Information Night on Tuesday, February 27, 2018.
