Lesson Plans May 15, 2017  thru May 19, 2017

This week we will remediate for the Math Milestone Retakes. The retakes will be given May 23rd and May 24th. Please begin to review all the topics  and websites listed below to prepare for the Milestone Retakes.

Students please continue to review integer computation, solving multi-step equations, plotting and identifying points on a coordinate plane, computing exponents,  cubed roots, perfect and non-perfect squares and cubed roots with and with out estimation, negative square roots, rational and irrational numbers,  converting, adjusting, adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing in scientific notation,and computing using the Pythagorean theorem, finding the volume of a cylinder, cone and sphere, functions and relations, linear and non linear equations and word problems, slopes and y intercepts, graphing slope equations, and scatter plots, line of best fit, correlations, motion and qualitative graphs, 2 way tables and frequency tables,  system of equations (graphing, substitution, elimination, word problems) along with what we have previously learned in class on a daily basis, inclusive of your homework assignments. Most of these skills will be used throughout 8th grade in every unit and also when you move onto 9th grade.  These skills are imperative to learn in order to progress this and next school year!!

Lesson Plans May 1, 2017  thru May 5, 2017

This week we will continue where we left off in Unit 7 (System of Equations), reviewing daily the graphing and substitution methods of the systems. Monday and Tuesday we will focus on the equations using the elimination method and  move on to the word problems using system of equations on Thursday and Friday. Also on Friday we will take the SMI test during on class. Wednesday we will do an activity which reviews all three of the systems of equations.

Students please continue to review integer computation, solving multi-step equations, plotting and identifying points on a coordinate plane, computing exponents,  cubed roots, perfect and non-perfect squares and cubed roots with and with out estimation, negative square roots, rational and irrational numbers,  converting, adjusting, adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing in scientific notation,and computing using the Pythagorean theorem, finding the volume of a cylinder, cone and sphere, functions and relations, linear and non linear equations and word problems, slopes and y intercepts, graphing slope equations, and scatter plots, line of best fit, correlations, motion and qualitative graphs, 2 way tables and frequency tables,  system of equations (graphing, substitution, elimination, word problems) along with what we have previously learned in class on a daily basis, inclusive of your homework assignments. Most of these skills will be used throughout 8th grade in every unit and also when you move onto 9th grade.  These skills are imperative to learn in order to progress this and next school year!!
