Today in math we learned how to use inverse operations to solve multiplication and division equations.  We watched a short video and recorded notes in our MSGs.  I have attached the video to watch again (or for those who were absent).  Homework:  p. 471, #1-7, #11 and #12.  On #12 you will have to do a little more thinking in order to solve.

We started Unit 4 on Equations and Inequalities on Monday.  We will have a quiz over addition and subtraction equations on Friday.  Tonight’s homework it to complete the Equation Handout showing how they isolated the variable to solve the equation.  MSG notes have multiple examples of addition and subtraction equations.  Use those to help you solve the homework problems.  Watch the Mathantics video posted yesterday for a review.

UNIT 3 RETEST is scheduled for Thursday and Friday morning at 8:20.  Report to the cafeteria and a math teacher will come to pick you up around that time.  You must have your test corrections signed by your parents and stapled to the original test in order to receive the retest.

HW:  Complete Study Guide for Unit 3 (front and back).  Remember to review your notes in your MSG to prepare for the Unit 3 test on Thursday.  Review videos from previous blog posts on exponents, order of operations,  evaluating expressions, distributive property, and combining terms. Kahn Academy is a great resource for reviewing the topics we have learned in this unit.
