Lesson Plans April 10, 2017 thru April 14, 2017
At the beginning of each class period, we will continue reviewing for our Math Milestone test which will be given April 24th and 25th. We will begin Unit 7 this week, which focuses on System of Equations(graphing, substitution, elimination, and word problems) . Monday and Tuesday we will learn how to graph using system of equations. On Tuesday we will do a TAG activity which focus on the graphing method of systems of equations. Wednesday and Thursday we learn the substitution method for system of equations. Friday we will take a test which focuses on the graphing and substitution methods of system 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. These skills are imperative to learn in order to progress this school year!!
