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.
