Retention letters were sent home this week for students who are in danger of failing 8th grade.  Parents must sign those letters and return them to school by the end of the week to their student’s homeroom teacher.

Several students are out sick with the flu or other illnesses.  While we want students to avoid missing school, please do not come to school if you are running a fever or ill.

Warm Up: MobyMax Fluency Drill and progress check on Weekly Skills

Lesson: Today we discussed how to compare functions when they are given in different forms.  (equations, graphs, words, tables, and ordered pairs).  Students are expected to know how to find the slope and y-intercept from each of these representations.

Homework: Finish the Linear Functions matching worksheet.

Unit 5 Test Tuesday Feb 8th
