Unit 1 Resources to study

Tuesday, October 10th we will be taking part 1 of Unit 1. Part 1 is all about Parallel Lines and Transversals Vocabulary angle vocabulary, finding the value of missing angles and the triangle sum theorem. The attached PowerPoint will help you study the angle vocabulary and determine whether angles are congruent or supplementary. There are also some links within the presentation that will bring you to Khan Academy to practice some skills.

This week in Math

Due to the weather, this week is a short one. Instead of introducing something new, we are going to review last week’s concepts to make sure that we are ready to move on next week.

Wednesday: we are going to be completing an online lab to review Lines, Transversals and Angles. You can access the lab by clicking this link: https://student.desmos.com/?prepopulateCode=63ngv

Thursday: we will be exploring angle vocabulary and the angles of triangles today. You can access both activities with the links below:

This week in Math

We will shift our focus from multi-step equations to the coordinate plane. We will review the parts of the coordinate plane, plotting points and do some activities to make sure that we are prepared to utilize the coordinate plane in the next upcoming weeks. On Wednesday, we will begin Unit 1 with our introduction to translations. The remainder of the week, we will continue our discussion of translations that will prepare us for next week after our 3 day weekend.

Is Math in your future??

Ever think about how you will use math in your future? Do you know what you want to do in the future? We will be taking a career assessment to provide us with some insight about which careers match our personalities. Each unit, we will be taking a look at which of those concepts can be used in the careers we chose. The website for the career assessment is  https://www.123test.com/career-test/.

Jigsaw week!

This week is a Jigsaw week! You will have 4 learning targets this week: Two step equations, Combining Like Terms, Distributive Property and Solving 2 step equations with all of those concepts involved. Each time a learning target is mastered, students will receive one piece of their 4 piece jigsaw puzzle. On Friday, we can put the pieces together to see what picture it creates! We will be working on our division skills as well as our integer rules in the process.

This week in math

This week we are reviewing one-step equations, integers, and positive/negative numbers. We will be taking the SMI math diagnostic test 8/8 and 8/9/2017- If you have any questions please contact me.

 

This will be a wonderful week!
