Friday is Relay for Life Twin Day- donate $1, dress like a twin with a friend
Warm up: Progress check on Weekly Skills 15- due Friday, Mobymax fluency drill
Lesson: Today we’re continuing to use the Pythagorean Theorem to determine if a triangle is a right triangle, and also to solve real world problems involving right triangles. Don’t forget to use LWPC!
Homework: Pythagorean Theorem MobyMax lesson or worksheet
Chapter 4 Equations Tests were returned today- grades are in Synergy. Students who scored below 70 have a chance for test recovery by completing test corrections and completing the Quizzizz below. This is due Friday, Nov. 17th.

Warm up: MobyMax fluency drill and progress check on Weekly Skills 15- due Friday
Lesson: We are starting Unit 3 today and learning about the Pythagorean Theorem.
When using formulas follow these 4 steps every time-
Homework: MobyMax Lesson on Pythagorean Theorem, or Pythagorean Theorem homework practice worksheet. Get the Unit 4 parent letter signed for bonus points on the next test.
**Check Synergy for updated grades and Ch 4 Equations test scores. Test recovery coming soon for those that scored below a 70%.
Students were given Weekly Skills 17 today and told to do selected problems to help study for tomorrow’s test.
Class time was spend reviewing each problem from the study guide in detail, including error analysis and test taking strategies.
Homework: Study for the Unit 3 test on Pythagorean Theorem and Volume. Review notes and study guide. See links below for study guide answers
Formulas and calculators will be provided.
***Get your Unit 4 Parent letter signed (in your OMG) for 5 bonus points.
Today students handed in Weekly Skills #16
Students were shown their graded quizzes, followed by an error analysis discussion.
Next students worked on the Touchstones questions for Volume.

***TEST IS TUESDAY DEC 6th!
Today students checked the homework from page 403, reviewing the formulas for finding the volume of Spheres and Hemispheres.
We referred to selected problems on the Weekly Skills that used the same formulas.
Next we discussed how changing dimensions affects the volume of figures. (Notes were added to the OMG)
-Change 1 dimension: multiply by the scale factor
-Change 2 dimensions: multiply by the scale factor squared
-Change 3 dimensions: multiply by the scale factor cubed (creates a similar figure)
Homework: 3rd block complete pg 410
6th block complete the back of the note sheet
QUIZ THURSDAY over Pythagorean Theorem and Volume
UNIT TEST NEXT TUESDAY- Dec 6, 2016
How to find the volume of a sphere Welcome back!
Today students reviewed Pythagorean Theorem, and finding the volume of Cylinders and Cones by completing selected problems of Weekly Skills 16. This is due Friday.
Next students completed the Pythagorean Theorem Unit 3 Touchstones questions if they were not able to finish them from the Friday before the break.
Then we learned how to find the Volume of Spheres.

How to find the volume of a sphere
Homework: pg 403 (1-8)
Today we checked the Wednesday problems for Weekly Skills 15- finish it tonight, it’s due tomorrow!
Next we checked the homework using the Volume for Cylinders.
Then we did a little science experiment- did you know you can fit the volume of 3 cones into a cylinder? We proved that today and saw how the formula for finding the volume of a cone is derived.
Homework: pg 395 (1-8, 14)
Today we checked the Tuesday problems of Weekly Skills #15- due Friday
Next we completed a timed Math Minute drill and checked the homework.
The lesson today was using the formula for the Volume of a Cylinder. (notes pg 386) We still use LWPC, but now we use a different formula:
Here’s a video with an example:
Homework: page 386 (1-5)
Today we checked over the Monday problems on Weekly Skills 15.
Next we discussed how to use the Pythagorean Theorem to find the distance between 2 points on the coordinate grid. Here’s a video with an example:
Pythagorean Theorem on the Coordinate Grid
Homework: Pg 367 (1-3) Pg 369 (15, 16) Pg 270 (20)
Today students were able to use the first few minutes of class to ask for help on Weekly Skills 14- it’s due tomorrow!
Next students were issued the second volume of their Math textbook. It should be brought to class each day.
We are starting Unit 3 today- Pythagorean Theorem is the first lesson. We took notes, updated our OMG and worked some example problems.
Homework: pg 343-344 (1-13) odds
